In a defensive effort which pleased coach Kerry Brett, the Uralla Tigers league tag side delivered a 52-nil drubbing to Warialda on Sunday. 

“The most pleasing part about it was the zero,” Brett said. 

“Fifty-two is good but to let no points in was the most satisfying part about it.” 

This Saturday will be a tough contest for the Uralla side who will be missing their three Greater Northern representatives against a much-improved Tenterfield team. 

“While they are at the bottom of the table, I don't think there is much between them and the other sides,” Brett said.

“I am thinking they will be give us a bit of a run because we will be a bit short this weekend. 

“We may only have at worst one on the bench. 

“With so many out I will be happy with a win.”

Tenterfield didn’t land their first win until round five against Warialda but have been improving every week.


Brett expects them to be firing when they face his unbeaten Uralla team. 

“I watched their first game against Guyra and on that day I thought they were going to get better and be fairly competitive by the end of the season,” he said. 

“I think they are working towards that by the sounds of it.”
