THE Batemans Bay Tigers stole the lead from the skies and presented it in bullet form to Milton-Ulladulla’s at the weekend.
Guided by the twin towers of Hank Pickett and Justin Zutt, the brother’s Elliott manufactured a first half demolition of the Bulldogs to guide the Tigers to 32-16 win at Mackay Park.
There appears few forward units that can match the Tigers pack when they are working in unison and playing with the kind of passion that was displayed on Sunday.
Unfortunately, the threatening conditions opened late in the second half in an outpouring of emotion rather than a downpour of rain, with a flurry of fists from both sides.
Earlier, the Tigers were the first to open the scoring after withstanding a Bulldogs assault for two sets of six on their own try-line.
Steve Elliott capitalised on some good lead up work from his brother Michael to plunge over from dummy half, putting the Tigers up 6-0.
With the lead swinging up front, Troy Beecham began pencilling-in his name for man-of-the-match, displaying vision, speed and skill to chip ahead, regather and back up Rodney Connell to score.
The 12-0 tally was possibly Michael Elliott’s last recollection of the first half scoreboard despite leaving two defenders sprawling in his wake to step and weave his way to the line from 15m out.
