Mundubbera Tigers set to claw back a place in finals
MUNDUBBERA Tigers are getting set to roar in this season’s rugby league competition.
The team hoped to completely turn around its performance, from coming bottom of the ladder last season to making the finals this year.
Captain Jacob Kimber said members were hard at work training twice a week.
“The coach has been really hard on us and making us do a lot of fitness work,” he said.
“This year there will be more local players so we want to build a closer bond.”
Kimber said the Tigers had learnt from last season and were looking to build unity within the team.
They were hit hard last season when they played Theodore with 14 players and only six of those players had regularly turned up to training.
This season they were working on getting to know each other’s strengths and weaknesses.
“We want to keep the core 13 players on the field the whole year,” Kimber said.
“That way everyone knows each other’s plays and where they are supposed to be.”
The captain expressed confidence in his team and said the players had last year’s premiership winners, Monto, in their sights.

The Tigers also want to do their home crowd proud when the Citrus Cup is played in Mundubbera.
“I missed out on playing in Mundubbera in 2012,” Kimber said.
“This year I’m hoping we will win the Citrus Cup back again.”
