The Juniors played at Trundle in the Major Semi-Final for their place in the Grand Final last Saturday. They started really well and led at half time 12-10 which was a shock for the bigger Manildra side.
In the second half with the wind against them the Tigers gave Manildra too much possession and couldn’t hold the big pack out and the Rhinos forged their way to the front and led 26-12. The young Tigers then fought back with a late try to make the final score 26-18 to Manildra.
The Tigers should have a lot of confidence from this game as they had Manildra under pressure. They take on Trundle this Sunday for a chance to take on Manildra in the big dance the following Sunday.
Try scorers for the Tigers were Fraser Ryder 2, Gus Fisher 1 and Zac Lees 3 goals.
