Well the old foes arrived at Robbo looking to turn the tables On a round hiding in the seniors and in all grades of footy for that matter the results didn’t go the dogs way in some one sided contests in front of a handful of brave supporters on a chilly Satty arvo.
The seniors coming off a loss were primed for a big day out and didn’t fail to deliver. From the outset they dominated the clearance and had the dogs back peddling early. John Buck got back in the goal kickers with 8 lollies. Brandy Meyers again bagged 6 in a solid performance Dale Walker was on fire but had an early bath with a sore foot. Brady Morton worked all day and Jim Carroll had his fair share of it also. The back man had a quiet day holding them to 7 points. Lahn celebrated his birthday with a bit of it also. Nick McCormack was named BOG and well deserved.
The rezzies had a ripper start to the day piling on the score board early but in the second half took control and ran away with it. Solid hit out from Scott Pearce again with Carter Lovell silky at times. Josh Larwood is playing the house down and his ukulele! Ben Farrell made us dizzy with his moves and down forward Nathan Cooke was the pick of the six. Louis Beard also starting to find form at the right end of the season. Kicked straight they win by 100 clams plus
Some inaccurate kicking from the dogs early in the under 17 could have seen them in front early but 5 points and Tigers good start had them chasing all day and the young tiger cubs came out 20 point winners. Justo Jenkins shows why he got a senior game early with a polished performance. Harry Bennett again got his hands blistered, Benny Schirmer’ had them well organised through the middle Fraser Yates showed signs also. A brilliant win against a quality Turvey outfit.
A quick shout out and congrats to Sahniqua Flanigan for taking out Miss Wagga Tigers for 2016. Solid all round effort by her in the night.

It was definitely a cold and bleak day at the courts. The day bought some mixed results with a loss from the Under 17’s 40-14. Janaya Colgan getting best on court for the day. This was followed by a close three point win in C grade with August Robertson pulling out the goods to help her team come home with the win. Unfortunately, B grade couldn’t win another tight one losing by only one goal with Lucy Regan playing some outstanding passages of netball. In the possibly the win of the season Reserve grade timed their run perfectly. With about ten minutes to go Turvey had a lead of six goals, some great intercepts by Grace Cornell, Sarah Crackenthorpe supported by Hennie Inglis in the centre court allowed the girls to claw their way back in and not only win but convincingly so by six goals in the end.
A grade started their game in the middle of a downpour and sideways rain. The girls didn’t adapt accordingly to the weather for the first quarter with too many loose balls and long passes, finishing the first 10-10. It didn’t take long once the rain stopped for the girls to begin playing some lovely passages of play with Lana Duffy and Ella Finemore shooting goals at will. This was further supported with great defence from Jess Allen and Bridget Webster. A great win by over twenty goals sees the A graders building on their strengths coming into the last few weeks before finals.
