Another Successful Weekend for the Tigers – 4 from 5
Four wins from 5 matches last Saturday set the scene for a hugely successful Drop A Bundle Race Meeting at the Tigers Licensed Club on Saturday
Under 18 Grade Rising Stars.
Overnight rain made footy difficult at Kippax Oval. The ground was saturated for the start of the day with the Tigers Under 18 Grade Rising Stars welcoming back Brad Rauter after a lengthy stay on the sideline from surgery late last year. He in addition to Harry Grant returning after GWS GIANTS Academy commitments certainly bolstered the team. After only 5 points separated the teams at ¾ time, the Tigers eventually ground out a significant win over a quality Magpies combination.
The scores were relatively even throughout the match with the youthful Tigers kicking away in the last term to record a sound victory. Such is the youth of this team, many backed up that day for the Clubs Under 17 age group that afternoon. Thanks to all those who are assisting the club field the two teams each week.
This weekend – the Tigers take on the improved Tuggeranong Hawks on Saturday morning at Manuka Oval (not Football Park as

There are no games this week for the Tigers Men’s 1st and Reserve Grade teams and Tigerettes 1st Grade team due to Representative football.
Men’s 1st Grade
Traveling to Kippax, many would have thought the Tigers were in for a strong performance against the Magpies. They had played some spirited football in the opening three rounds of competition especially against Eastlake the previous week where they had a significant win.
It certainly wasn’t to be the case last Saturday. After an even 1st quarter, Belconnen started to dominate even though scoreboard didn’t indicate that dominance. They outplayed the Tigers with 27 scoring shots to just 11. The Magpies were by far the better team on the day and deserved such a comprehensive victory.
The loss has left the selection panel with a few worries leading up to their next outing against Ainslie at Ainslie after the bye this weekend due to

Tigerettes 1st Grade
The final match on a particularly cold day would see the Tigerettes 1st Grade continue their winning way with a 38-point victory over the Magpies at
After an even first half of footy, the Tigerettes applied plenty of pressure in the third term to post three goals one point holding their opponents scoreless. It was much the same in the final quarter for the away team to run out comfortable victors.
The team has the bye this weekend to accommodate a Representative game
