Despite the drive through the thick fog Ballina turned on the sunshine for the match today.
We had a challenging game which really tested our boys. The training work done with coach Julian this week paid off as our disposals were much quicker today.
Hugo, Lincoln and Thomas did well in this improvement in their games today.
Finn executed some fine tackles today really giving it to the bombers and keeping the crowd entertained.
As always Fletcher, Zeke, Will and Marcus got plenty of ball time and kept the pressure on the other team.
Players of the Week Thomas for putting in his best performance this year and Finn who defended well setting a great example for his team mates.
Cooper kicked another goal and has kept up consistent form in his playing this season.
We were s few guys down today which was a shame and we missed a great chance to match up & play another team with equal numbers to us.
Very happy with everyone’s game today.
See you next week at our home field tiger land where we take on the Brunswick Valley team 9:45 game please be there 9:15 for game prep.

Welcome to wet weather footy!! Slippery, muddy and wet and the girls loved every minute of it. Today we took on Lismore for the second time this season. It was great to have a home game for the first time (especially for Mothers day allowing a little sleep in for some) We nearly had our full team in and the pregame chatter was we had a good chance of our first win. Unfortunately we didn’t get to prove this as Lismore had only 7 players turn up and therefore gave us the win due to forfeit.
We made the most of it by giving 4 of our girls to them so we could have a scratch match.
We would like to thank Mia, Milly, Cassidy and Amelia for playing for Lismore (great sportsmanship) Final score was Tweed 6.16.52 to Lismore 2.1.13. Goal scorers were, Inka Shillings 3, Makayla Sekac 2, Ella Cornelius 1. and Mia Illes 1 (for Lismore). Better players Tobi Chapman who was our player of the week, Ella Cornelius, Inka Shillings, Keisha Landers and Makayla Sekac.
It’s great to see all the girls improving.
We had a injury scare late in the last quarter with Ella taking a kick to her fingers, we are pleased to let you all know she is ok and will be at training on Wednesday.
Thanks to all our parent helpers that braved to wet weather, much appreciated.
See you all at training.

Hi all well it was a wet Mother’s Day to play our arch rivals cooly!!! And the lads didn’t disappoint !!! With our 2 older heads unable to take to the field it was up to the boys to show the football community what tigers are made of !!! And they didn’t disappoint …
Players for the day were Blaine, stoney, Charlie, Hayden, and Noah booting 4 goals !!! And ran out the game with a broken wrist !!
But every boy was asked to do their bit and that they did … With robbo in a tagging role for the last qtr the tigers stood up and came up trumps by 17 points !!! Well done lads you played good hard fair football and it was a well earn win against another qld side !!! Go tigers on top of the table 3 out of 3 wins !!!
