The Rococo's Bar and Bistro Noosa Tigers guaranteed a top two finish and thus a home final with a comprehensive 57 point belting of fellow premiership fancies Aspley at Weyba rd last Saturday.
Early on however the tigers didn’t get it their own way and a highly aggressive hornet outfit led the home team to the footy to lead at the main break by 9 points. From that point on it was all the flag favourites led superbly in the ruck by 2019 premiership hero Connor McDonald who amassed 37 hit outs and 29 disposals for the afternoon. His athleticism and first class delivery to his onballers just a stand out. So too the class and finishing skills of the Noosa onballers, Meredith (34 touches), Hutchison (28 touches), Fraser and Laskey who both had the footy over 25 times were just too classy and dominant over their Aspley counterparts. These blokes in particular just smashed the hornets in the clearances and their delivery by hand and foot a treat to watch at times. Down back Harry Maher intercepted everything in the air as he continues a stellar Covid season.

Vice captain McKrimmon finished with a heap of the footy particularly in the final stanza where he amassed 16 touches on the outer wing. Young Shadeau Brain showed why he is well and truly entrenched in this Tigers senior outfit whilst other teenagers Will O'Dwyer (4 goals),Mitch Langan (4 goals) Mav Pettigrove and Mac Johnston continue to flourish and have influence on games. Mitch Langan a special mention as 4 goals and a performance like that on senior debut was really memorable. Of course Mitch the eldest son of former Tiger champion Reece, who many believe including this scribe to be the best footballer to put on a Tiger jumper. General Manager Jack Harper kicked 2 monster set shot goals to lift the strong Tiger home crowd voice and played his role perfectly as did recruit Ben Collins who bagged three and had plenty of other score involvements. All in all a terrific team effort by the top of the table Tigers as they again hit our Weyba rd home ground this Saturday to play Springwood in our final home fixture game of the season. Senior game starts at 2pm.
