Ainslie Revenge First Round Defeat
The Tigers NEAFL team were outclassed by a superior Ainslie combination last Saturday at Ainslie Oval inflicting the Clubs second loss of the season.
Both Clubs were missing players but the depth of Ainslie proved the difference in what is an ominous sign from the Tricolours who have recruited wisely over the summer months.
The Tigers were forced to exclude both Ryan Quade and Will Griggs from the line up prior to the game which resulted in 6 changes from the previous week’s game against Belconnen.
Also missing were Todd Dickinson (who has a season ending knee injury from the match against the Magpies), James McCabe, David Smith and Kaine Stevens. The Clubs injury toll has certainly taken a huge blast this season with Beau Walker and Matt Cavedon both recovering from ankle and knee injuries respectively while Josh Bryce will also miss the season with a knee injury.
Inclusions last Saturday were Jarrod Atkinson, Mitch Daniher, Neil Irwin, Michael Wescombe and youngster Tim Shea.
