Tigers cant wait to start season

THE transformation of the Grafton Tigers has begun.

No more easybeats, no more fitness issues. Time for footy.

“We are starting to hit peak fitness at the moment,” coach Adrian Campbell said.

“It’s going really well at the moment and our fitness and skills are really coming along.”

The addition of several new players, including the talented Ronald Davis, as well as a tougher fitness regime implemented by new boss Campbell has the Tigers looking sharper than ever before.

And Campbell knows it.

“We are getting good numbers and are really keen to start getting out there,” he said.

“We have a couple of good new players which should help us.”

The Tigers have no scheduled pre-season matches but plan to play an intra-club trial in the coming weeks.

The season begins with a trip to North Coffs on April 16, with the draw heavily backended with home matches while the redevelopment at Grafton’s Ellem Oval is completed.
