    Apparently Saints had some guys up a few weeks ago for a look, but it seems like they have (like many before them) have taken the cash from CTB. One of which is a gun from all reports and his mates just average but will be getting paid anyway. From what I hear. Great signing of Zac Kelly as coach, he is a great player and top bloke to matcn.

    I have been reliably informed that Fish has been appointed as the new Umpire Manager.

    North Cairns Tigers are looking for more players this year.

    We can promise that there will be plenty of free beer flowing for all players. Double the free beer if you were a Hawks player! Triple if you were a Port Douglas player!

    - A senior coach with 12 years AFL experience at Port Power.
    - Our new netball courts are now complete, so we'll have the netball girls training at the same venue.

    So if you're having a look on this forum from another league, head to our website www.northcairnstigers.com.au for more info or send me a PM.

    We'd love to have you down at Tigerland.

    Have been hearing rumours around the club that North Cairns players R Bridge and M Koch are leaving the tigers to take up offers and work at Cutters. Also Heard that R Bridge has been training at Trinity beach. can anyone confirm if these are true?

    Yes Bridge has signed with trinity beach not sure what they are paying him though... apparently Koch has been seen back in Cairns and hasn't been training with Norths either has he gone back to souths? Tigers not sounding good..

    Going by the clearances it looks like both Pt Douglas and the Lions have been busy.

    It would seem that Lions have lost a few back down south (Hughes, Stack, etc.) should be interesting how they replace,
    Richter a big loss for Norths and if Bridge has moved across to Bulldogs, Tigers will be spewing,
    Souths don't seem to be losing too many and picking up a couple,

    Can confirm bridge is getting 600 a game out at CTB. You'd think Tigers would have plenty of money to offer after the likes of Richter, Rowe, Mueller and Bosen have all left. Koch is rumored to be linked with a few clubs but hasn't been spotted anywhere as far as I know. You'd think North Cairns would pay big to keep talent like them boys around the club. #tigersnohope

    From all reports coming out of Norths is that Bridge hasn't even been in contact with them since he came back, and they good deal on the table for him.

    Clearance list looks interesting. What's happening with Harbrow, I see his clearance was denied. I herad last year that Koch was going to Box Hill, maybe not happening now. Centrals have obviously got some coing if they're throwing around $600 a game for Bridge. None the less, it will be an interesting season with a 6 team comp.
