The Tigers had to do something in the last half and they did. James was a great target up forward, which brought others into the game.
The heavy influence of Alleway, Ross and Brown had fallen off, as the Tigers shrugged off their laziness and threatened to blow the score out. It was six goal third term for the Tigers and held Victor to just two to lead by 22 points at the last change.
The Roos battled the whole way, but could not narrow the gap in the last. Bradley Fitzgerald was superb for the Tigers and the run of Sidebottom and Kane proved decisive in the second half. The end result was a 30 point win for the Tigers. James continues his good form up forward booting four goals and he had support from Gillings with three.
Victor have a great group of youngsters in Dowling and Wade and have a solid base for the future. The Tigers have a big road ahead with three tough games in a row, but with numbers returning, they are sure to put in a good showing led by coach Kane and experienced players mentoring the young locals.
