Tigers hit stride

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

MUN­DUB­BERA Tigers have found a win­ning com­bi­na­tion for their squad.

The Tigers turned up to play in front of their home crowd on Satur­day against the al­ways un­pre­dictable Monto Roos.

And af­ter only eight min­utes the Tigers hit the lead with a con­verted try.

The Roos hit back in the 17th minute with a try of their own, but that would be the only time they would cross the line in the first

half.

Mun­dub­bera piled on the points with tries in the 26th minute, 30th minute and the 34th minute of the first half to bring the score to 20 – 4 at the break.

Tigers cap­tain Bert Bee­z­ley said his team were in the zone and their form was promis­ing for the rest of the sea­son.

“We have been train­ing very well as a team over the past few weeks and it is pay­ing off,” Bee­z­ley said.

“We have been work­ing on com­bi­na­tions be­tween backs and for­wards and that showed in to­day’s game.”

The sec­ond half started and within the first minute Mun­dub­bera were in again which set the scene for a heart­break­ing 40 min­utes for the Roos.

Three more Tigers tries would take their score to 40.

The Roos scored a con­so­la­tion try in the dy­ing stages of the game to limp to dou­ble fig­ures.

Roos’ de­fence in the mid­dle of the ruck let them down on sev­eral oc­ca­sions and with seven line breaks by the Tigers with five re­sult­ing in tries cer­tainly didn’t help the Roos’ cause.

The Tigers also moved the ball around the field bet­ter than the Roos and their de­fence was also very good.
