Tyne Tees Tigers 2.6 (18) defeated by Nottingham Scorpions 26.26 (182)
Well the boys headed down to York on Saturday to face the Scorpions and within 5 mins we came under some friendly fire from Mikey! Cleaning up Brady with a knee to the kidneys which put him out of the match especially after loosing his lunch and finding red stuff in his wee...not a good start!
Kicking with the aid of a good breeze in the first quarter we couldn't capitalize on our chances and found ourselves behind the eight ball early! Things didn't improve over the next 3 quarters as the rain came down and more injuries started to pile up. The bench was depleted! The boys dug deep throughout the match and showed real quality glimpses of what we can do when we all work together. Ross worked tirelessly from the pocket and didn't stop running when put on the ball. Roy was his usual gutsy self around the ground. The coaching staff couldn't fault the attitude and effort against some top notch competition. We may have lost the battle but there is still a war to be won!! Carn the Tigers!!
