Rd 18 – Tigers Clinch Minor Premiership, Focus Turns to Finals.

The Tweed Coast Tigers have secured their first Minor Premiership in the Summerland League after downing Nimbin Demons in the last game of the home and away season at Round Mountain on Saturday.

The Tigers finished the home and away season with an unprecedented 17 wins straight and a 27 goal drubbing of a spirited Nimbin outfit topped up with some of the Potty Locals.

This season has been a fantastic effort by the Committee, volunteers and players to secure a Minor Premiership in only the Clubs second year, however it would be an injustice for the team not to go the extra distance and take out the title, so all focus is now on the first Semi Final this Saturday v Ballina at Lismore. The Tigers have been steely and determined to remain humble and focus on one game at a time and this will be the plan from here on.

On Saturday the Tigers used the game v Nimbin as an opportunity to continue the development of the game plan with consistent and hard pressure on the ball followed by running and delivery to the forwards, who have capitalize all season finding the big sticks.

With up to 6 of the Tigers resting it was a good chance for players to find some good form leading into the finals.

There were quality performances across the park with Strope, Ash, Arnie, Johno, Jimmy and Bones all contributing from the middle. Coach for the day Jai opted for a rotational policy which allowed some of the backs to sneak up front with Timmy, Arty, Peaches and Westy all finding the big sticks.

With 3 of the forwards all vying for Tigers leading goal kicker it was left to Bolty to take the title with another 10 goal performance which took him ahead of resting forwards Jacob & Roundy. Other players to get amongst the goals included Ash, Arnie, Nugget and Jimmy all with 3 a piece.

Big thanks to Nimbin for their spirited performances all year and hats of to the Potty boys who have played the last part of the season for the Demons. We hope to see a bigger stronger Nimbin outfit next year.

A great way to finish the home and away season, but now all attention moves forward to the training track this week and the Major Semi at Oakes Oval this Saturday v Ballina.

Thanks to all the volunteers, Tigers support staff and the home crowd for their great support.
