The Bruns Bulldogs Under-11s hit the ground snarling against Tweed Tigers on Sunday, holding their own in a first quarter of fiercely contested ball.

Young pup Ned Bailey burrowed under packs, Ethan Johnston ploughed through them, and tenacious Thandi MCallister pressured the Tigers with her relentless tackling and chasing.

Tweed’s experience and footy smarts gained the ascendancy after the first break but they didn’t have it all their own way. Jack Bailey was dominant in the ruck, and Adam Grey stood tall in defence, preventing a number of goals.

In the Dogs’ play of the day Charlie MCallister took on four larger opponents and, through sheer determination, got the pill to the fleet of foot Charlie Heath to burst clear and send a drop punt deep into attack. Caio De Souza iced that cake with a clever six-pointer.

It was the Tigers’ day though and, when the ump called time, their running game had orchestrated an impressive win.

For the Bulldogs it was a solid hitout, leaving them primed for this week’s blockbuster against Casino.
