2017 AFLCNE Round 2 vs Nottingham @ Huddersfield YMCA Rugby Club
Tigers 6.8.44 Def by Notts 22.18.150
After a few late scratchings we travelled down to Hudds to face last year's grand finalist, Nottingham!
With close to a full squad the game could be broken into 2 halves!
The tigers started with a bang and could have been a couple goals up within 5 mins. On a different day we could have been.
Non the less the boys piled on the pressure giving Notts no easy possessions.
Stevie A (French Connection) was rebounding like the machine we know he is!
As Crafty battled to keep the pill in Tiger land. Half time down by 4 goals and well in the game!
After half time Notts kicked up a gear as our fitness began to let us down and goals seemed to be coming from all angles.
Although the boys never took a step back and the effort continued we just couldn't quite keep up the pressure.
Things didn't get all that much better when our dick of the day was revealed.....Capper struggling to keep the peace with "the men in white" and was sent packing!!
Again the scoreline felt like it flattered the opposition but the boys that pulled on the black and gold should hold their heads up as we start to prepare for a big big club day against Sheffield!! Tigers live and power on!!
