Round 5 Newsletter

Monday 3rd November 2014

Despite being undermanned particularly in the backline the Toll Tiwi Bombers fought back from big deficits several times in the first half before the impact of injuries to key players allowed the opposition an easy scoreboard win.

Coach Willie Rioli said “The last 2 games have been reality checks for a few players against physically stronger and opponents but the major positive has been the determination to fight to the final siren. Injuries have been a challenge but overall the attitude has been excellent” Scoreboard – Round 5

This Week’s Toll Tiwi Bombers Game:

Premier League-Saturday 3.10pm at TIO Stadium, Marrara vs Palmerston Magpies

Youth Girls-Sunday 8.30am at Gardens Oval vs Palmerston Magpies

A critical game for the Toll Tiwi Bombers Premier League team in the context of the full season. To play finals we MUST defeat teams below us on the ladder. This week’s opposition have several key players not the least of whom are Leroy Jetta & Alwyn (Froggy) Davey (both ex Essendon) and Aaron Davey (ex Melbourne). Palmerston gained confidence after winning their first game last Sunday.

Family Pride on the Line????

Adding spice to Saturdays match is the fact our Toll Tiwi Bomber Coach Willie Rioli Snr will be keen to take the premiership points from nephew and Magpie Coaching counterpart Dean Rioli.

Toll Tiwi Bombers Youth Girls Team
The girls went down narrowly to a physical Wanderers side but shiwed plenty of spirit and determination in our toughest game so far this season. Forced to play short in the last quarter to ensure some players made the ferry in time presented a challenge but to their credit the Toll Youth Girls Bombers never stopped trying. A big thanks to Club sponors Sea Link who have generously adjusted their departure time by an hour which should avoid the last quarter problem this week at Gardens Oval when we meet Palmerston Magpies
