TIGERS TO CHANNEL SPIRIT OF LATE GREAT
WESTS Tigers coach Michael Maguire has urged his side to harness the emotion of the club’s tribute to Tommy Raudonikis ahead of today’s clash with North Queensland at Leichhardt Oval.
Raudonikis, who passed away on Wednesday, was one of Western Suburbs’ greatest ever players and the joint venture is set for one of the most moving days in their history as they farewell the Magpies legend.
“You do speak about those things, it’s a special moment for the club,” Maguire said.
“But you have to make sure you manage that right.
“You have to look at what Tommy was as a player and use what’s in the air around you to get out and play.
“We’re very honoured to be able to honour him through the day.”
