OVENS AND KING | Not just any grand final for Glenrowan Kelly Tigers

SEASON 2012 feels like an eternity ago for Glenrowan.

The prospect of playing in four consecutive grand finals and aiming for a third straight flag was almost laughable.

But it’s become a reality, and co-coach Nigel Robinson says a successful three-peat when the Tigers take on Tarrawingee would be the perfect way to complete the club’s resurrection.

“We’ve built ourselves up over four years, this isn’t just any grand final,” he said.

“We’ll still approach it like any other game, but we know there’s a lot more to it.” 

This season is likely to be Robinson’s last at the helm, with the long-time coach likely to hand full control over to fellow co-coach and brother Matthew Robinson next year.

With the possibility of leading the Tigers to a triple-premiership run alongside his brother on the line, Robinson said the club would pull put all the stops.

“Sharing the coaching with Matt this year has been good, we’ve been trying to transition across to him.

“It’s been great, coaching a flag with my brother just be incredible.” 

The Tigers take on the Tarrawingee Bulldogs from 2:20pm at W.J. Findlay Oval in Wangaratta.

STARTED WITH NOTHING: Glenrowan co-coach Nigel Robinson says a third-straight grand final win would be the ultimate vindication for the Tigers.
