The Tigers enjoyed quality numbers for the opening training session of 2014.
A number of new faces were in attendance along with some many youngsters who are keen on making their mark on the NEAFL team this season.
Josh Bryce took the reigns as Co Coach (in the absence of his partner in crime Kade Klemke – who is currently overseas). He welcomed all in attendance and emphasised the importance of each session from now until the commencement of the season proper.

The Club welcomes a number of new faces to the organisation of which there is a strong component of players from Tuggeranong who have joined the Tigers after the Hawks left the NEAFL competition.
They are hopeful of resurrecting their careers as NEAFL players with the Tigers combination.
Included in that group is Daniel Johnson – the nephew of former Tigers Premiership player Gerard Johnson and Alex Lawder both of whom have played well in excess of 100 1st Grade games with the Hawks.
“DJ” had a long and distinguished career with the Hawks before having the 2013 season off. His versatility and hardness at the ball will be a welcome addition to a list that has lost the services of Kaine Stevens (West Adelaide), Matt Cavedon (retired), Ben Klemke and Steve Jolliffe (Wodonga Raiders).
The Club will be announcing a number of other signings in coming weeks.
