Win against Theodore a turn­ing point for Tigers

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

THE piv­otal game of the sea­son for the Mun­dub­bera Tigers was the away game against Theodore in July.

The Tigers won that game against the com­pe­ti­tion lead­ers con­vinc­ingly.

From that game on the Tiger were grand fi­nal con­tenders.

Hav­ing the same play­ers on the field ev­ery week has made a vast dif­fer­ence to their game, and con­sis­tency on the train­ing pad­dock has paved the way for com­bi­na­tions to form.

Tigers’s for­ward pack has worked hard on their fit­ness and they have been work­ing with cap­tain/coach Bert Bee­z­ley on run­ning hard up the mid­dle of the ruck.

Bee­z­ley has also been able to show his men how to slow down the game and then run the ball hard to link up with the backs.

The Theodore game was the one that in­stilled con­fi­dence in the team, so they are now able to throw the ball out at will, then slow the game down and use their power in the mid­dle of the field push­ing up through the for­wards.

Bee­z­ley’s team is go­ing to be hard to stop on Satur­day af­ter­noon.
