We have four noteworthy Tigers this week:
Jacob Dufrene, a newcomer, showed good speed, agility, and hardness at the ball, especially in packs. Good stuff for a new player.
Rugby Ray impressed last summer when he came out to conditioning sessions and quickly established his fitness. This week he bagged about 6 goals during the scratch match using both feet and from different angles.
Roo-ben sparked the team with his enthusiasm, but also impressed by routinely by following his passes up the field for support/opportunity to receive a handball. This is a match-winning skill and one that is a testament to fitness, but mostly desire.
Minnesota James continues to flourish in a defensive and midfield role by doing the little things: spoiling marks when caught behind, supporting teammates, and working hard in training to build on his already considerable fitness.
Good job, fellas.
