This week gone:

Round 2 saw a number of new faces in our Under 18s side, we welcome each of you to the Hobart Tigers Football Club. Despite the new faces, it was the Tigers of old with the Under 18s winning their 20th game on the trot with a 109-0 win over the Huonville Lions away. The damage could have been worse for the Lions with the Tigers inaccurately kicking 14 goals and 25 behinds. Mark Cripps with 2.4 copping flak for his inaccuracy from teammates.

It was the opposite story for the Women in their first game, taking on the runners-up from last year the South East Suns. The Suns showed their class winning by a whopping 168 points over the Tigers who fought hard and showed signs of improvement but didn’t trouble the scorers. A tough first game for our Girls but we know they’ve got plenty of improvement in them and wish them luck in their next game against Lindisfarne on Sunday 22nd April. We also extend a welcome to you, as you are all an important part of our proud football club!

Off the field we had our Annual Quiz Night run by the Master Rules sides and the Women’s. Well done to all involved on a fantastic night.

Our Womens’ and Under 18s both have a Bye this weekend. But we encourage you to head down to Pontville and check out the Reserves at 11.30, and the Seniors at 1.30 both taking on the Brighton Robins.

New Signings:
The club is pleased to announce the signings of Gerry Lynd who returns from Brighton, after a stint with Hobart previously under Anthony McConnon in the TSL. We would also like to announce that Daniel Robottom has committed to the Club. We look forward to seeing both guys in action throughout the year!
