Nothing fancy: coach

AFTER a mid-game sleep, Emerald Tigers turned it around to beat Peak Downs Pirates 46-24 in Tieri at the weekend.

Tigers coach Phil Rooney spoke proudly of their improved second half effort to lay the points on when it mattered.

“They built the pressure, nailed the kicking game and didn’t try and do anything fancy after that,” he said.

Ryan Douglas was players’ player and Calan Dunbar went over for three tries, picking up two points for the game.

“Tigers got the jump on us in the second half with a lot of second-phase play and just played the better footy,” Pirates coach Kurt Sullivan said.

Daniel Creek was named Pirates players’ player, with worthy mention going to Mitch Reinke for his efforts and two tries in the logbook.
