Last weekend we celebrated the third annual Tiger Day at Brindisi St. We were treated with senior footy at home all day with our 3rds taking the win over Beaumaris, and our reserves and senior men playing Fitzroy with both a win and a loss. Our senior women's team has just last week been moved into a new division from C to B. This has presented some challenges, but our women have brilliantly risen above them all and forged ahead last weekend. Incredibly there were twelve senior women players who played in both the reserves and the senior women's match due to so many of our players being unavailable because of injury or playing with VFLW/AFLW teams. Some of our women’s players are in their first season of football, so this is a huge commitment.All of our senior teams embodied the spirit of our club on the weekend and made us so very proud.
During the Tiger Day celebrations with little Auskickers out on the ground, parents helping serve food, music from our U17 team players’ band, women and men senior players all coming together after hard matches, junior players having a kick-to-kick, and later on SBMT people from across the club standing together watching the fireworks, I was struck by how lucky we are. We have a great club, with amazing people.
Lastly, be good to your mums this Sunday! (Actually, be good to them always but especially on Mother's Day.) I hope all our SBMT mothers/aunts/grandmothers/significant women enjoy a wonderful day being spoilt by their families.

Tiger Talk is back
All junior teams are welcome this Sunday night at the clubrooms for the first Tiger Talk of the season! Pizza and Chips are on the menu, so come and catch up on the first round with all your Tiger mates from 5:30pm.
Tiger Talk is on this Sunday night for all Age Groups.
No Match Reports just a good opportunity for families to catch up and make new acquaintances.
On the menu - pizza and chips. The bar will be open. Kicks off around 5:30pm.
The club wishes to send its condolences to the extended Murray family plus the Noosa Tigers AFC where Bones headed to in 1976.
Ray was not the most talented junior, often picked as 19th man before traveling to England for around 5 years with a group of our former Tigers playing rugby.
On return, he played 106 matches before heading north, always had a cheeky grin and was certainly a full-of-life character.
Bones joined the Noosa Tigers in 1976, he was a ruckman through and through and came to the Tigers at the age of 36 and played until 48.
He won three B&F’s, was the captain for many years and won senior premierships (1980-81)???? So good was his record, he was made a life member at Noosa in 1983.
His friendships in Melbourne remained strong over the years and when he ventured down, he would drop into the Mentone Reserve to check out the club.
We have a lot of firsts at the club and Bones built his own boat, learned navigation and sailed around the world.
Ray's funeral is on 12 April and with a plane full of Victorians heading up to pay their respects it is sure to be a grand send off.
