Northern Tigers has a great family feel, everyone is mates and looks out for each other, no one is too big for their boots, except for Jamie Craig he’s always got something to say!

Has to be back when l was playing for Manly and we beat Northern Tigers in a cup game – I saved Liam’s penalty in the shootout to go through to the final – sorry Liam!
