The increased focus on interchange rotations was a feature and allowed the team to consistently work hard to set up an eight goal first quarter.
To their credit the Tigers had a crack in the second, scoring three quick goals in succession. However, Figtree’s on field leaders restructured the defence and quickly regained control of the game.
osh Spicer worked tirelessly in the middle and new addition Will Ryan showed some class around the packs. With Figtree working selflessly as a team the players new to the game continue to grow in confidence and experience each week.
With a 12 goal lead at three quarter time Figtree showed their character and intent and ran as hard as ever in the last with an 8.5 to 0.1 final quarter. A brilliant team effort by all.
