Angus Juers #19

Nickname: Gus

Occupation: Barman

Role: Midfielder/Forward

Profile: Gus is the baby of team, having recently hitting puberty in early 2017.  Gus is looking forward to competing with adults this season both on and off the field.  Crafty has volunteered to take him under his wing and teach him lessons from 30 years of debauchery.  On the field, Gus is a quick and evasive midfielder.

Patrick MacKay #31

Nickname: Patty

Occupation: Teacher/Barman

Role: Forward

Profile: Pat is a new inclusion to the Tigers for 2017, after having decided to sample the Geordie culture for a six-month stint.  A strong leading forward with vast football experience, Pat will be aiming to give Lally's record of 44 goals a good shake this season.  Has a fancy haircut.

Morgan Cole #30

Nickname: Morgs / Big Morgs

Occupation: Civil Engineer

Role: Assistant Coach/Defender/Forward

Profile: Morgan is an old fashioned but effective bash and crash for defender, his brief ambitions for forward dominance were quickly curtailed by some poor goal kicking (mainly 2.8 against Merseyside).  Morgs will help Chris out with coaching duties during training sessions for the upcoming season.

Warwick Bettles #33

Nickname: Cappa

Occupation: Marketing Manager

Role: Ruck/Utility

Profile: Cappa has joined the club after being convinced that the Tigers are a far superior team then the local American Football Club.  No doubt he will likely regret this decision.  Cappa will add depth to our ruck stocks as well as being a utility all over the ground.  Early indicators are the Cappa will represent in style in post-football shenanigans.

Tom Lally #21

Nickname: Lally, The Myth, Wombat

Occupation: Archaeologist

Role: Forward

Profile: Rumours are that Lally could play a bit, anecdotal evidence of 44 goals in 9 games helps back this theory up.  However, his presence in a tiger shirt over the last two seasons has been as hard to find as the artefacts he is currently digging for in Australia.  Wait and see.......
