Rd 12 V Coburg Match Report

One Down, Three to Go

It was a welcome return for Ben Brown in the first quarter on Sunday when the big man from Tassie took the game by the scruff of the neck and gave Werribee a dream start. Five goals to one set up the day for the Tigers and judging by the volume of the opposition coach Peter German’s address to his backline, he saw a heavy loss brewing for his charges. The Tigers continued to dominate in the second term and took a six goal lead to the major break.

The third quarter was not what the Tigers were looking for according to head coach John Lamont “I thought the game lost its fizz to be honest early in the third quarter. We made some critical mistakes and they took advantage of that, but in the end I was pleased we finished really strongly in the last quarter. We had a good freshen up with the bye and it was good to win”

Werribee is home for the next three weeks. This Saturday we host Geelong in the game that was swapped from round one. The Cats won that game in drizzly conditions so the Tigers will be keen to reverse that result. Frank Costa and Merv Hughes will be guest speakers at the President’s Lunch this Saturday with the game starting at 1pm.
