The Tigers shared the load up forward with four multiple goal kickers with Brad Salmon, Daniel Razga, Tom Leishman and Jonathon Jennings all kicking two goals.

Darcy Leishman, Brad Salmon and Daniel Goss were named in their best players.

" It was really good to get the first win on the board, but we can't be just happy with that though we got to keep performing now" Simpson coach Tom Leishman said.

" It was just a really good team effort across the board from our side, our back line held up really strong and were rarely beaten"

" Rhys Vanbeak and Zac Tesselaar done a really good in the ruck against a quality ruck man in Mark Riley. Our forward pressure and ability to maintain the majority of the play in our forward half was spot on and something that we lacked last week in the loss to the Bay" he said.

The Swans are now sitting on bottom of the ladder winless heading into the Easter break. Tom Driver kicked two goals for them with Spencer Williamson and Liam McGuane named in their best players.
