Helensburgh Tiger Lillies roll on
The Tiger-Lillies qualified for the grand final last weekend by defeating the second-placed Corrimal Cougars, who are a team with plenty of potential as was shown in the major semi-final played last week.
While the 22-4 scoreline indicates a one-sided affair, it was a hard-fought and fairly even match, with both sides playing enterprising footy.
Georgie Brooker was again one of the standouts for the Tiger-Lillies, with Australian representative Emma Tonegato also stepping up to the plate.
Tiger Lillies coach Corey Whitaker was happy to take the win, however expressed that they'll need to perform at a higher standard in the grand final if they are to wrap up their third successive title.
Corrimal now face Wests this weekend, after the She-Devils beat Berkeley 18-6 in the first week of the finals series.
The Cougars and She-Devils have met on three occassions this year, and Wests have faired the best so far, winning the first two encounters. The Corrimal side has finished the season with a wet sail though, suffering their first loss in six matches against Helensburgh last week.
The last time Corrimal and Wests met, Corrimal won 18-0 which sets the scene for what should be a high standard final this Sunday. Adding to the theatrics of this weekend's bout, both sides are chomping at the bit to knock the Tiger-Lillies off their perch- something that the Cougars achieved in round 12.
