Old boys keep young Tigers in check
WHILE most teams will be fighting to keep their premiership dreams alive, Wests Tigers Reserve Grade look forward to a "big breakie” instead.
In a "chop and change” season, second rower Dallas Baker said his team were keen to compose themselves on their week off.
The Tigers have gone 13-1 this season and team fullback Dallas Baker hopes that form carries into their next game.
"It's a really good group of boys and we've been doing really well,” he said.
The Tigers have made the grand final for the past two years but failed to win the premiership.
"Hopefully we change the odds this year,” Baker said.
"A few of the older boys who were there for the past two years have that fire to get the win.”
Baker said his side had found a happy mix of experience and youth, which he deemed their strongest asset.
"We have a few more young guns compared to previous years and a few older heads keeping us all together and cool headed,” he said.
"No one side dominates, it's a mixture of both that keeps us strong.”
Baker, who is new to the side, said the mateship in the team had made an enjoyable season.
"We're not the biggest side but we're a tightknit group of mates,” he said. "Working for each other has really gotten us through the year.”
