Tigers hit stride
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
Bert Beezley We have been training very well as a team over the past few weeks and it is paying off .
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.
