Tenterfield Tigers celebrate 100 years

The mighty Tenterfield Tigers are planning their centenary festivities with the club celebrating their 100th season in 2018.

In 1918, three teams formed; two Tenterfield sides, the Wallabies and Kangaroos together with Wallangarra.

The three clubs played their first game at Queens Park, Tenterfield on Saturday, July 13, 1918, and on Saturday, July 28, the Tenterfield Tigers will run on at Rugby League Park, 100 years later.

In recent years, the club has been a successful part of the Border Rugby League competition, but has re-entered the CRL Group 19 Competition this season due to the BRL's recess period.

To celebrate the centenary milestone, the Tigers will host a 100-year Anniversary Ball at the Tenterfield Memorial Hall on the Saturday night (July 28).

The club is urging anyone who has been associated with the Tigers to get in contact and join the celebrations.

Tenterfield President Brendan Minns is urging all past and present Tigers to join in the celebrations.

"We would hate to miss someone in our search for past and present players and committee members in our 100-year celebrations," he said.

"If you have some time to attend the event, I would certainly encourage you to contact the club and arrange a trip back home to Tenterfield and join us in celebrating the historic milestone."

Ahead of the Anniversary Ball, a meet and greet barbecue will be held at Rugby League Park, combined with the Tenterfield Rugby League 100 years book launch.

Supporters will also be able to cheer on the Tenterfield Tigers as they take on the Warialda Wombats in both the Men's and Women's grades.
