Cats upset Lions
Both Rutherglen senior teams had very good wins against Wahgunyah on Saturday.
After a long pre-season it was great to see the players run out and play some very good football.
The new guys all played their part and made an impression at their new home.
A mixture of experience and youth blended in well, with one senior player in particular still having wedding bells ringing in his ears.
Credit to coaches Tom Renshaw, Matt Far- rugia, Damien Wilson and their assistants for getting the Cats to this point and having the players ready for a successful year ahead.
Coach Wilson continued on where he left off last year with a brilliant performance across the ground and finishing with eight goals.
Even the finals specialist Tyson Neander found the goals, so early in the year.
The Rutherglen Cats hosted arch rivals Wahgunyah in round one of TDFL Footy on Saturday.
