TULLY Tigers hosted Cassowary Coast rivals, Innisfail last Saturday, in the local derby and despite a strong second half comeback, the home side was defeated 25 – 18 in A-grade.
In the first half, the Tigers were kept scoreless as Innisfail romped in for two tries scored by Julian Christian, and a conversion goal by Aaron Jolley saw the visitors hold a 10 point lead.
Matt Laumea scored a double for the Tigers and one try to Tai Namaibai, whilst Phil Nona slotted three goals.
Innisfail’s second half try scorers were Tamati Huirama and Robert Garrett with two conversions, a penalty kick and field goal slotted by Jolley.
Innisfail Leprechauns’ A-grade coach, Leon Hallie, commented that it was a tough battle against the Tigers in Tully.
“Although Tully have yet to register a win, the way they played against us it should not be too long before they do.”
“They were just as tough as any opposition we have faced this year.”
“Julian Christian was solid on debut for the club, and his experience was needed considering we were without Lata Fakalelu, Dan Sagigi, and Gabriel Stephen.”
It was a tight start to the Reserve Grade game with Tully’s only points scored through a penalty goal by Louis Carlaw. Innisfail held a slim four-point lead at the break and finished with a 16 – 6 win at full time.
The Tigers dominated the Under 18 game and stormed home with 22 unanswered points and kept Innisfail scoreless.
