A young Uralla Tigers outfit have been given an extra incentive for redemption from their last-start 52-6 loss to ladder leaders Kootingal when they run on to the field against Boggabri this Saturday. 

The club host their Old Boys Day against the Kangaroos who sit one spot below them on the Group 4 ladder. 

Coach Brett Monley said it would be inspiring for his young squad to have past members of the club cheering them on and hoped the town get around the Tigers to boost their chances.

“Our side this year contains a lot of 18 and 19 year old boys who are coming into grade football now. We are just trying to get as many old boys there to support these young fellas and talk about the old times of how the club had been run and how the players were,” he said. 

“We didn't travel that well [last Saturday] and we are looking at turning that around and getting a win at home in front of our supporters and show that we are the future of the Tigers.” 

Monley said communication in defence is the side’s biggest weakness and they will aim to improve that this weekend. The League Tag starts at 1.30pm and the men’s at 2.30pm.
