CEL­E­BRATED lo­cal Justin Car­ney brought years of ex­pe­ri­ence in the NRL and Premier Leagues and helped fuel the Tigers at Apex Oval on Sun­day.

Forty years after the west­ern club won a Group 15 ti­tle and 30 since they stole one in Group 14, the gold and blacks are on the path to­wards their first Group 11 first grade pre­mier­ship. They de­feated co-lead­ers Welling­ton a fort­night ago and on Sun­day dis­posed of nom­i­nal mi­nor pre­miers, CYMS.

It was the man­ner of the Tigers’ se­cond half maul­ing of the nor­mally im­preg­nable green line of de­fence that had spec­ta­tors talk­ing after the match, and Nyn­gan stal­warts be­gin­ning to dream.

Welling­ton, CYMS, Parkes and de­fend­ing premier Forbes will all have some­thing to say about that, but it cer­tainly sets up a spec­tac­u­lar fi­nals se­ries.

Elec­tri­fy­ing winger Ash “The Flash” Wid­ders has been a real hit with the Tigers after trav­el­ling west with the Mer­ritt broth­ers this sea­son. Sur­pris­ingly, he failed to trou­ble the scor­ers on Sun­day.

CYMS prop Ben Mar­lin made a wel­come re­turn to the Fishies after an ex­tended trip over­seas, al­though his face does not re­flect he “en­joyed” the mo­ment!
