Southern League Friday 19th, the Lions travelled away to San Miguel for a match v SM Bulldogs. Unfortunately the heavy localised rain/showers meant that the match could not be played. It will now be re-scheduled to next Saturday, 27th November.

Tigers at home v Vistabella Picadors, had a very tough match, finishing 0pts-10, 50shots – 83. I’m sure we’ll bounce back again, here’s to a better result next week!
