MERRIVALE’S forward line is looking very dangerous indeed.

Multiple-time Hampden league leading goal-kicker Jason Rowan has joined the Tigers as playing coach, and will team with former Allansford key forward Brenton Webster.

“We needed to recruita couple of bigger bodies and key position players, and we’ve worked hard to do that,” Rowan said.

“We picked up a couple of back men, picked up really well in the middle and picked up some key position players up forward.”

The added attacking power will be a boon forthe Tigers, and, teamed with what was the third-best defence in the league last season (conceding 54 points per game), will create headaches for the opposition.

The Tigers will be eyeing a swift return to the top in the WDFNL and former Warrnambool spearhead Rowan has been impressed with what his charges have produced thus far.

“The boys have worked hard over the pre-season and we’re putting in a few different things we want to achieve over the season,” he said.

“They’ve picked it up really well and we can see how they’ve improved.”
