2013 FOXTEL Cup

The Tigers tremendous win in the qualifying game of the FOXTEL Cup against Northern Territory Thunder last Saturday has been soured by the news that youngster Beau Walker could miss the rest of the season.

He landed awkwardly on his ankle in a contested marking situation which resulted in the horrific dislocation of the left ankle.

He was named the NEAFL Rising Star the week before during round three of the Eastern Conference and had gained the plaudits of many associated with the Club for his strong judgement and silky skills.

His second quarter departure from the field fired the Tigers into action and they eventually secured a strong 53 point victory over their Northern Territory opponents.

The Tigers were able to overcome a fast start from the Thunder, surging to a 13.10 (88) to 4.9 (35) victory in the qualifying match.

“Manuka Oval” was in superb condition (now named StarTrack Oval) which resulted in a high-pressured contest that was ultimately controlled by a disciplined Queanbeyan outfit.

The Tigers kept the fast-paced Thunder to a single goal in the second and third quarters, returning eight majors of their own in the process.
