NYNGAN fans trav­elled home with “Tigers in the tank” on Sun­day afternoon.

Justin Car­ney’s first grade team had torn the Raiders de­fence to shreds, Re­serves locked up the Mi­nor Premier­ship with their win – and earned a week off – while the Ju­niors booked an Elim­i­na­tion Fi­nal spot.

Un­for­tu­nately, de­spite a hard fought 12-4 win in League Tag, the Tigers women fin­ished just out of the top five. An ugly in­ci­dent in the game will be heard by Group 11 of­fi­cials tonight.

It was a rare on-field blem­ish in the sea­son and Ju­di­ciary chair Mick Wil­son and his co­horts will have the best in­ter­ests of the game in mind when they hear from all par­ties.

Nyngan travel to Welling­ton for the Qual­i­fy­ing Fi­nal on Satur­day, while Parkes hosts Forbes in the Elim­i­na­tion game on Sun­day.
