Seasoned Tiger lifts team mates

AUSTRALIAN RULES: Noosa coach Adam Bovalino says stalwart Nick Hill is enjoying a tremendous season and is lifting the players around him.

The 33-year-old midfielder/foward has helped the Tigers to the top of the ladder in the QFA division one competition through 11 of 18 rounds.

He's played a key role for the team for several campaigns but has been particularly influential this time around.

"He's played a lot of good footy,” the coach said. "Some of his pre-season was interrupted by injury but as the year's gone on he's become a really important part of our team.

"He makes players around him better and brings the younger boys in the game.”

Bovalino said they're delighted Hill is in their line-up.

"He can play a number of positions for us and he's had a fantastic year.”

Hill's one of a few key senior players in the team who have paved the way.

"We've got a great mix of older and younger. We have three or four 17 to 18 year-olds so to have those older guys around, educating them week in and week out is fantastic and they also help me as a coach.”

The Tigers travel to University of Queensland on Saturday. Their opponents are sixth on the nine-team ladder in the south-east Queensland competition. Both teams had last-start victories but the Tigers have won their past five matches.

Five of their men helped South Queensland beat North Queensland in a representative match in Townsville last weekend.

Among other games, Maroochydore travels to Burleigh.
