TULLY Tigers hosted Atherton Roosters last Saturday and, despite holding a 16-point lead, the home side was defeated by 30 – 22 in the A-grade match and gave Atherton their second win of the season.

In the first half, the Tigers led by 16 – 0, before Atherton clawed their way back into the game with three converted tries and were holding a slim two-point lead at the half time break.

Atherton scored first in the second half, then Tully, and another try to the Roosters all but sealed the eight-point win.

Lealataua Tonumaipea scored a double for the Tigers, and one try to Ethan Moafanua and Jacob Rix, whilst Jonathan Hughes slotted three goals.

The Tully Tigers claimed victory by 28 – 14 against Atherton in the Reserve grade game, and the Under 18 team was defeated by Atherton 30 – 22.
