Tiger’s pre-season to kick off
With Wolverhampton Wolverines kicking off the season for a number of clubs last weekend at the West Midlands Charity Shield, this Saturday sees the Tyne Tees Tigers take to the field for their first run-out of a packed 2017 pre-season at the Bawbag cup.
The Tigers will make the journey to visit our Northern neighbours, playing in a three-team round robin tournament versus the Kingdom Kangaroos and West Lothian Eagles in South Queensferry.
Last season’s 2-team format in Newcastle saw the Roos take victory, and the Tigers will no doubt be hoping to return the favour and demonstrate what the AFLCNE has to offer by bringing the trophy back south of the border. However, the addition of new boys the Eagles adds a new dimension to the mix, and the day is looking like a spicy affair.
The tournament will start at 12:00 at the Queensferry Sports and Community Hub, 30 Ashburnham Road, South Queensferry, EH30 9JN.
