The Tiger second grade side gave the first grade squad an early lift when they knocked Murrurundi Mavericks out of thepremiership race with a 26-18 win before the first grade side knocked over Singleton Greyhounds 34-12 in the main game.

Both sides will have a weekend off now to wait and see just who they play in a fortnight when the major semi finals are played at Scone Park this Sunday.

In first grade, Scone Thoroughbreds host Muswellbrook Rams while Singleton and Scone match up in the second grade major semi.

In Under 18’s, Muswellbrook and Singleton battle out a major semi with Scone and Greta Branxton to meet in the major semi.

Losers of those two lower grade major semis then play Scone (Under 18) and Muswellbrook Rams after those two sides won minor semi finals against Denman (16-12) and Singleton (22-10) on Sunday.

Aberdeen Tigers president Les Horvath was a delighted club supremo after both Tiger sides came away with wins at Singleton.

“It was a great day for us,” Horvath said.

“Two good wins. The second grade was a bit undisciplined but they did well and the A-Grade dominated right from the start. They led 16-6 at half time and continued on in the second half.”

He said the Tiger prop Liam Fitzsimmons and goalkicking winger Matthew Thompson were close to the Tigers best.

“Liam is a real worker,had a great game,” Horvath said.

“And Matt is a good winger who also kicks goals (5). Kicked a couple from the sideline too. Him and Karl Shearman (centre) created a lot of chances and our captain-coach, Trent Walker, also had an outstanding game at lock.”

Fullback Hamish Wolfgang scored a try while his young brother, Tyler Wolfgang, crossed for two from his wing spot.

“We’ve got a week off now to get ready for the preliminary final,” Horvath said.

“We’ve got a couple of injuries too.”

The most concerning was a knee injury to halfback and chief organiser Joey Griffiths.He was replaced 10 minutes from half time after injuring his knee.

“We didn’t want to take any risks with Joey,” Horvath said.

“We don’t know how serious it is but he will be having it looked at [on Monday].

“It’s not too swollen but we didn’t want to take any chance.

“We’ve had a bad run with injuries all season but we’re just starting to hit our straps now. Hopefully Joey will be right so we can be at full strength for the final.”
