Eden Tigers in the fray for Allstar match

Five Eden Tigers will take part in the Indigenous Dream team v Allstars Group 16 rugby league match this weekend. 

The game will see Group 16s best clash in a season-opener at Ack Weyman Oval, Moruya on Sunday. 

Dylan Fletcher will join a strong contingent of players in the Allstar line-up, which primarily consists of players from Moruya and Cooma. 

Meanwhile, four of Eden’s Indigenous players have made selection for the Dream team. 

Morgan Stewart, Alan and Aaron Aldridge and Shane Mongta will all represent the Indigenous squad.

Alan has been leading the Tigers during the pre-season assault and was key in making short work of Tathra. 

His command and quick-thinking saw the Tigers dominate the attack to take a strong win last weekend.

Alan and Aaron combine well to make plays on the left wing and are solid in defence. 

Expect to see some clever offloads or driving wide passes to push play near the boundaries. 

Aaron does his best work near the wing and has a mean two-step which can shock defenders. 

Meanwhile, Shane Mongta is a speed demon. 

He will attract plenty of attention from the Allstars with some clever footwork and bursts of speed. 

Morgan Stewart, on the other hand, will play a more tactical game and can stand up in both the attack and defence. 

The talented footballer has been showing great form and won’t hesitate diving deep in the action. 

However, the talented players will be going against their brother in arms by means of Fletcher. 

Fletcher has developed a very “in your face” attitude with his playstyle and excels in his kicking game. 

His conversions were hit and miss against Tathra, but Fletcher is normally one of the best kickers in the league. 

Fletcher will be pivotal in riling up the Dream team players, but could also prove dangerous from long range. 

Keep an eye out for 40-20 opportunities to see the Allstars pressing play forward. 

A number of Eden’s Tigerettes have also been named for the north v south league-tag curtain raiser on Sunday. 

 Katrina Lackey, Mardi Longford and Gemma Danvers will all take the field from 1pm at Ack Weyman oval on Sunday. 

The league tag match will act as a warm up to the headline event. 

The Tigers are urging everyone to head along to enjoy both games and support the rugby league code.
