Weekend Wrap Up: Tigers bring up the half century

Intrust Super Cup

The Suzuki Brisbane Tigers pumped the Burleigh Bears 50-10 in Sunday’s Intrust Super Cup Round 3 clash at Totally Workwear Stadium.

After conceding 70 and scoring only 10 points in the past two rounds, the Tigers had a performance to remember bringing up the half century.

Tigers prop William Samuel opened up the scoring in the 3rd minute of the game, before claiming a double in the 69th minute.

Whilst Melbourne Storm contracted and Tigers winger Dean Ieremia had a field day scoring a hat-trick, running for 150 metres and claiming the Intrust Super Cup Hastings Deering Player of the Match.

Tigers hooker Aaron Booth said the difference in their performance today came down to stronger defence and completing sets.

“We didn’t start the year as well as we wanted to,” Booth said.

“We haven’t been holding the ball in the last couple of weeks and that was the biggest difference today.”

BHP Premiership

The 70-0 Round 1 loss against the Burleigh Bears was a disappointing result for the Suzuki Brisbane Tigers BHP Premiership side.

Playing against a Burleigh side oozing with Representative talent such as Karina Brown, Tamika Upton and Millie Boyle, the Tigers hardly found themselves with possession of the ball.

Whilst they weren’t able to display many attacking sets, they must be commended for never giving up.
