Tigers legend Bob Griffin celebrates club’s 90th anniversary
Story by Lee Gaskin
His first season with the Queanbeyan Tigers coincided with winning a premiership in 1956.
And ever since then, the Tigers have always been close to the heart of club legend Bob Griffin.
Griffin is part of the intrinsic fabric of the Tigers, who celebrate their 90th anniversary at a gala function at the Canberra Southern Cross Club in Woden next Saturday night.
A North East Australian Football League match with the Belconnen Magpies at Dairy Farmers Park next Saturday will also be part of the festivities.
