Will Griggs plays his 100th Club Game on Saturday against Eastlake with his 100th 1st Grade Game due to be played against the GWS GIANTS on 9 August. Griggsy is a former Tigers Junior and NEAFL Premiership player and a valuable member of the Tigers Footy Club. One of our favourite sons he has enjoyed a mixed season in 2014 with a knee injury suffered against the Sydney Swans in Round 2 hampering his season.
A subsequent knee operation kept him out of contention for a couple of months but since his return his form has been excellent. Further info will be published on the occasion of his 100th 1st Grade game – but for this week – all and sundry within our ranks forward our congratulations on what has been an outstanding career for one of our most popular playing members.
