The Tigers Women are in the Semi Finals and tonight they take on the Nunawading Spectres.
Nunawading have had great success against the Tigers but the Tigers did beat them only a few weeks ago to make it an even battle at least in the eyes or machines of the bookies.
The Women’s success this year should build fan confidence in the Melbourne Tigers, people love success and this year the Tigers have been successful and have seen the club go from a club with a famous name to a club that can cause trouble to sides.
Isn’t it amazing that just four years ago we had no SEABL teams and our Tigers were playing in BigV largely unnoticed to the casual fan and our spin off NBL Tigers became Melbourne United.
It’s hard work at times convincing fellow Tigers fans that the Men and Women who play for the club in SEABL are worthy of the same level of support that fans gave the NBL club over 30 years of competition.
They are totally worth it and things can only go up from here, the Men were just a few points away from finals this year and if the Men and Women can retain their lists and perhaps add another player or two then 2019 could be a season of double success.
Regardless of the result tonight, our second taste of finals should be enjoyed because we have earned the right to be semi finalists.
