AFTER a heavy defeat at the hands of Orange CYMS in round seven, the Oberon Tigers enjoyed the bye last weekend and took the opportunity to re-group.
Captain/coach Luke Branighan conducted what he called an “honesty session” last Tuesday evening and took the players through a video of the game frame-by-frame.
Branighan said he was thoroughly disappointed in the performance of the men in black and gold and that the standard was unacceptable when wearing the famous Tigers jersey.
This Sunday Oberon face the high-flying Bathurst Panthers, who have been dismantling teams and racking up big scores along the way.
The Bathurst Panthers’ most recent game was a 56-26 defeat of the Mudgee Dragons at Mudgee on Sunday.
Branighan will be returning from injury and is confident the Tigers will more than match the Panthers in all departments and come away with the win to get their tilt at the premiership back on track.
The Tigers are looking to get a big crowd to help get them over the line.
League tag will start at 10.30am and premier league will start at 2.15pm this Sunday, June 4.
THE Old Tiges will meet again over breakfast this Sunday, June 4 when Oberon play at home to Bathurst Panthers.
This will be our last home game until July 16.
