Woori Yallock had a fantastic season in 2022, making the Grand Final and being ahead for a fair chunk of it.
Unfortunately for the Tigers, they couldn’t hold on to their lead and went down to Narre Warren.
Narre Warren are an extremely strong side, and it was a very commendable effort to have lead for much of the match.
For the Tigers, 2023 shapes as another promising season, one where perhaps they could go one step further and win the ultimate prize.
Last year, they were a force to be reckoned with, beating the other three top four sides and handing out a few beltings, headlined by a 199 point shellacking of Mt Evelyn in Round 18.
Joshua Neal and Zach Monkhorst had outstanding years up forward and were a big part of why Woori boasted the second highest score per game at 104 points. If their forward line can remain just as potent as in 2022, they will be right back up in the flag mix again.
Woori had the most intercept marks, with 20.4 per game, second in contested marks with 16.2 per game and second in inside 50s with an impressive 57.2 per game.
The main difference between them and Narre Warren is that they conceded an extra 23 points per game than Narre Warren.
They will be right up in the mix for the flag again in 2023 and have plenty of talent, including Liam O’Dea and Robert Allen, who both made the Team of the Year in 2022 on the back of outstanding seasons.
