Tigers will be keen to find their bite again

Hard to stop: Big Vance Byles on the charge for the Bush team last season. He'll play for Long Flat against Comboyne tomorrow.

COMBOYNE Tigers will be keen to put on an improved performance against Long Flat Dragons in the Hastings League tomorrow.

The Tigers are licking their wounds after going down against South West Rocks last weekend, and they will want to get a good win on the board tomorrow at the Comboyne Showground.

Hastings League publicity officer Corey Richardson said Long Flat could find it hard to win tomorrow.

"Poor old Long Flat could meet them [Comboyne] fired up," he said.

"I know the Comboyne boys aren't happy about getting rolled last weekend."

If utility player Shannon Lee fires tomorrow, Comboyne will be in with a big shot at winning.

Lee plays halfback or hooker, but could be hot or cold, according to Richardson.

"Diamonds or rocks," he said.

"He reminds be a bit of Preston Campbell."

Long Flat has some firepower of its own though.

"Keith 'Honey' Hollis in the forwards," Richardson said.

"If he goes forward, the likes of Vancy [Byles] can follow."

If Byles fires, it's look out Tigers.

"If he could only realise how hard the big man is to bring down," Richardson said.
