Eden Tigers quicks highlighted in battle with Stallions

A theme is beginning to emerge for the Eden Tigers.

Eden's outside backs are becoming incredibly dangerous on the back of good work by the club's middle men with Rhyse and Joel Grewar featuring once more in the try scorers against the Cooma Stallions over the weekend.

Eden are sharing fifth place on the Group 16 ladder after downing the Stallions in a comfortable 34-12 result at George Brown Mermorial Oval on Sunday.

It took just 10 minutes for Joel Grewar to open the scoring for the Tigers, while long time clubman Ian Smith found the mark with the conversion attempt.

Fifteen minutes later it was Rhys Grewar making the line as Eden's quicks were able to weave their way around the Cooma big men.

Smith again put the ball through the posts and the Tigers led quietly 12-0 into the break.

Cooma counted quickly into the second half when J Johnson found the chalk, but his efforts were countered soon after by hard-working Tigers forward Tsai Tui who ploughed through in the 52nd minute.

After Cooma were able to stay in the hunt when A Riley landed a try with the visitors pulling the Tigers back to an 18-12 lead.

However, the Tigers were soon showing they had plenty in the tank and started to punish any mistakes the Stallions made.

With 10 minutes left to play, Mason Harrison scored a cracking try with the Eden fullback showing he is both strong and nimble to dart around his opposition.

Matt Bell doubled down on his recent efforts working well out of the middle to be rewarded with a try and the Tigers were hitting the front 28-12 after Bell converted his own effort.

With 20 seconds left on the clock, Rhyse Grewar gave the home crowd more cause for cheer with a last-minute try and the Bell conversion sending the home team into the sheds on the back of a strong result.

The first grade win capped off a clean sweep for the Tigers, who had earlier won the league-tag contest 16-4 and the reserve grade match 38-20.

The Tigerettes now sit atop the women's ladder with the second best defensive stats in the competition next to the Bombala High Heelers.

After five rounds, the Eden outfit are also undefeated.

The Tigers also climbed to fifth place in the reserve grade draw after posting their second win of the season against the Stallions.

After leading 12-10 at the break the Tigers came to the fore, particularly Jeremiah Bamblett who hammered home a treble of tries in the second half.

Nick Smith, Izaiah Aldridge and Josh Cole also scored second half tries as the Tigers ran away with the game.

This Saturday the Tigers will be in a battle with their namesake as they take on the Bay Tigers at Batemans Bay's Mackay Park.
