in the hands is worth two in dispute.

against the Bombers.
Mirboo North’s 2006 and 2007
premiership captain, Clancy Bennett,
who also played in five junior flags
at the club, is the mighty Tigers’ new

Dimboola and Goodwood Saints SA,
plus assistant roles with Dimboola,

Bennett replaces Troy Hamilton
who was involved in four senior
flags with the Tigers, as a player and

Hamilton is not completely leaving
the game he loves and will coach
