After posting their first win for the season against Warialda last week, the Tenterfield Tigers league taggers stepped up to play second-placed Walcha in round six. 

The Jillaroos hadn’t had a point scored against them since round two and Tenterfield set their sights on breaking the trend on Saturday. 

Walcha started strong with two tries to Jordyn Hoy and one to Katelyn Smith to jump out to a 14-nil lead at half-time. 

The visitors added another try 10 minutes into the second-half, via Amy Withers, before Rylee Cooper made the breakthrough for the home side. 


Megg Landers added a four-pointer in the dying minutes to round out the 22-10 scoreline. 

Though they finished without the two points on the table, coach Wayne Minns said Tenterfield achieved what they set out to do. 

“Walcha came here with not having a point scored against them in the last three games and that was one thing we were determined to do - say ‘you are not going away from here with a zero on our name,’” he said. 

“Things are starting to come together really, really well.

“What we have been working on in the last two weeks is starting to take fruition.

“I am very happy with the girls.”

This Saturday the Tigerettes will take on the undefeated Uralla who beat Warialda 52-nil on Saturday. 

“We have to try and work on everything,” Minns said. 

“We will get to training on Monday night and go through everything again and keep working on it. 

“I am expecting a full side.”
