Tigers Guy Mepham took out the Tooheys Group 19 Player of the Year and the best and fairest for the Under 18s was Jayden Connors, who will head off to play for the Titans next year.

“We’ve also had Bevan French who’s going to Parramatta,” Curtin said.

“It’s a big year for the Tigers. We’re nurturing the future NRL players…and it is a good thing for the club.

“Another good thing for the club is the fact that this weekend the Tigers will tackle Gwydir at Bingara in the semi-finals. We’ve got a couple of players out but at the same time we’ve got a very good side,’ Curtin said.

“We performed well against Armidale last week, so we’re hoping we can take that form down to Bingara.

“Gwydir are a very good side, they led the comp for a very long time and then they just went through a slump; they came out and beat the competition favourites, Glen Innes two weeks ago so that sort of put the cat among the pigeons, so to speak.

“I think we can beat them at Bingara on a bit of a slower field, it will suit our team a lot better.”

Curtin’s tip for the grand final?

“I would say Tingha and Boomerangs,” Curtin laughed.

“But if we’re not there I think it will be Glen Innes and Boomerangs.”

SUCCESS: Tingha’s a grade coach Nick Dawson, Guy Mepham, Jayden Connors and under 18s coach Scott Fitzgerald at the Group 19 Presentations.
