Just watched the preiview done by blocker roach on Leichhardt Oval and the memories come flooding back. If you havent watched it heres the link



Makes you remember what its like to follow the mighty Wests Tigers. Through thick and thin i was a proud magpie and have felt the heart ache that is losing but if anything could turn us around its a packed Leichhardt Oval.

A true fan digs in when its tough and supports the team through rain, hail and shine. We all know its raining but we should all do our bit to help ,especially our young breed, kick start a season that is far from dead.

Loved the way the Players came round to the crowd after the game, was standing next to Blair when he climbed up on the fence to kiss his young child , thought it was a very touching moment for him. Just love Leichhardt its a great ground to watch the footy from.

I couldn't make to last night's game, but I watched it on TV but there was no comparison in terms of atmosphere, when you compared the 2 games.
On the TV you cold have sworn there were more than double the fans at Leichhardt oval than at ANZ stadium.
Good you fans that braved the elements.

The crowd was anamalistic. You could feel the.. passion... lol at every contentious referring decision.

7k crowd and it was like a fortress we were defending. The rain made it feel like such a battle!

There was no way the Cows had a chance of coming out on top haha!

For some reason the rain always adds a lot of passion to a game....nothing like getting soaked and screaming yourself hoarse cheering your team to a victory while consuming a few cans! Congratulations to all the hearty souls who braved the wet and our poor form to go to the game last night, the atmosphere sounded great on the telly! :sign:

Leichhardt Oval was electric last night. You could tell from the first minute that all of us die hards were there for one thing and one thing only.....to scream the team to victory!
There was no way we were leaving with anything less.
Great night and restored my faith in my fellow 'supporters'.
Go Tigers!

I honsetly think the crowd got the boys home on Friday night. I think a few of them were rather flattered that 7000 turned up in that weather on the back of 7-straight losses. Robbie and the boys did it for the die-hards. I thought the atmosphere was great and well worth the trek in the rain!

lost my voice for 2 days from screaming so loud on the hill, was an amazing night with only the die-hards attending. And when David scored the last try and it came up as a try on the big screen the crowd went up as one with randoms hugging randoms, was just a great moment. Rain adds so much more passion to the game. congrats to everyone who got out to the best ground in Sydney !!

totally agree with this. leichardt is the best ' tribal ' footy ground in sydney bar none. sirro was in a box near to where we were seated and i reckon he jumped as high as anyone when nofa went over in the corner.
huge congrats to all those who were there and to the players who really showed their appreciation to the fans at the end of game. :sign:

I remember the days of being a season ticket holder for Balmain and Weststigers from the early 90's , have massive memories going with my Dad , walking up that big Hill from the club LeMontage and how losing became a normality those days but the odd game when we won was a massive celebration , I had the honour of playing for Balmain in S.G Ball and Flegg but wasn't good enough to play any higher , injuries played there part in Flegg but decided on my Qualifications , (no regrets) .
The 1st game I went to see was Round 22 vs Panthers 1989 and packed Leichardt where my old man hoisted me up on the old toilet block on the Hill was standing room only , and my 1st game in S.G ball vs the Roosters at Leichardt there was basically no one there but seeing my Family on the Stand was a special moment .
My ashes will be spread there .

That game was an absolute cracker from a Tigers point of view....we gave an almighty hammering to Penrith that afternoon.
Freeman's individual try, Sirro cracking Geoff Gerard with a thunderbolt right to the head, Bruce McGuire punching 7 shades out of Cartwright, Cartwright getting sent off for his high shot on Benny, man I can picture that game like it was last week. That was when Rugby League was at it's pinnacle IMO. Would of been awesome to have been at LO that day for sure.
