No Chickens in local girls rugby league

WHAT is more ferocious: a Tiger or a Rooster? It was made pretty clear, when the U14s girls West Tigers fronted up to a rematch against old rivals, Wanderers.


Wanderers’ Ebony Temple showed she was no chicken, when she opened scoring with a try, sliding between the posts with a conversion by Jaymie Clancy.

Tries were hard to come by throughout the match with both teams struggling hard to keep the other at bay.

That was until Maddison Simon saw an opening for Wanderers, slipping through the West Tigers’ defence and crossing the white line.

Once more, Jaymie Clancy took the conversion, and set the score at 12-0 to the Chooks.

With the taste of victory still on their lips from last week, the Wanderers pushed on even harder wearing down Tigers’ defence.

Speedy Maddison Simon went over again for her second try although the conversion went begging.

Not content at only adding on the conversions, Clancy took the ball and with a burst of stored-up speed, she crossed between the posts for her first try, taking the Wanderers’ lead to 22-0.

Another easy Wanderers’ try made up for the unsuccessful conversion, with the final score 26-0.

The Tigers put up a good fight all year, however this was to be their final game of the season.

Wanderers walked away with the win, but there were still firm and sporting handshakes after the final siren.

So, what’s the more ferocious of a Tiger and a Rooster? In this case, it certainly wasn’t what you might have first thought!
