The Tigers have made a successful start to the latest round as a number of sides push for a finals birth.

First grade will need to defend 288 next weekend if they are to earn first innings points against Toombul, who currently sit one spot above them on the competition ladder.

The Tigers’ batting innings looked shaky at 7/129 until a rearguard action led by Charles Mailli (119) and Jamie Ryan (40) helped the Tigers post a competitive total.

Other innings of note came from the bats of returning Bulls players Marnus Labuschagne (28) and James Peirson (35).

Second grade are in the box seat against Toombul following a dominant opening day that saw the Tigers pile on 452 runs in 82 overs.

Nick Hurford led from the front with a powerful innings of 128 from 104 deliveries before Cameron French strode to the wicket and picked up where Hurford left off, punishing the bowlers to all parts of the ground on his way to 121.

The Tigers had 15 overs at the Toombul opening batsmen before stumps but couldn’t muster a wicket.

Third grade are also in a dominant position against Toombul thanks to the heroics of Trent Conwell (80*), who recovered the Tigers’ innings following a shaky start that saw them lose 5/61.

Klinton Goodridge (20) and Wayne Todman (18*) were also instrumental in seeing the Tigers through to 8/261 at stumps.

Fourth grade bounced back from defeat with first innings points against Toombul on the opening day of the season’s penultimate match.

Lincoln Rosiak starred with the ball, claiming six wickets as the Tigers dismissed the home side for 143.

Jordan Crick also chimed in with three wickets to help set up an exciting final session of play.

Craig Holdsworth (57*), David Brook (57*) and Paul Bonney (27) made light work of the opposition’s bowling as they secured first innings points right before stumps.

The Tigers will resume at 2/149 next weekend.

Fifth grade were dismissed for 166 but have Wynnum-Manly four wickets down for 44 at stumps in a game that could decide the minor premiership.

Chris Barker (34) top scored with the bat and currently leads the wicket takers column with 2/13 from ten overs.

Sixth grade two are 9/222 at stumps on day one of their clash with South Brisbane on Peter Burge Oval. 

Jake Davies (20) and Mark Burt (32) formed a strong partnership at the top of the order before Jay Kildey (77*) and Andrew Hardy (28) helped the Tigers work their way towards a highly competitive total at stumps.

The Tigers’ Jodie Fields Shield side went down to Gold Coast in a high scoring affair away from home.

Chasing 207 for victory, the Tigers were dismissed for 142.

Jesica Pang (2/20) was the pick of the Tigers bowlers, while Hannah McLaughlin (35) and Delyse Laycock (47) top scored with the bat.
