Notable Quotes from Tiger Legends


Addressing the players before the 1992 Grand Final, Coach Brian Quade said:
Quote – “People say we’re lucky to be playing in our eighth straight grand final. I say that’s rubbish. All through the years this club has had to do things the hard way. There has been no pot of gold to buy players or pay players what they are worth, but that handicap has had the positive side effect of letting us develop into a team and club with great spirit. The harder we have worked, the more persistent we have become” end quote.
