Easts Tigers 2013



Big Dane Welcomes Fresh Start

Ethan James

THE Easts Tigers are pleased to announce the signing of former Mackay Cutters forward Dane Hogan, who will join the club for the 2013 season.
The 23-year old Bribie Island junior, who today inked a two-year contract, said the desire to be closer to family was a deciding factor in making the move south.
“Easts seems like a good club… I know a lot of people here, friends and family, so that was one of the main reasons in coming back to Brisbane,” he said.
“My old man still lives at Bribie as well, so it’s good not being too far away from him.”
Hogan joined the North Queensland Cowboys in 2008 and progressed through the National Under 20s Youth competition, where he was named player of the season in 2009.
He then made his NRL debut for the Cowboys against the Sydney Roosters in 2010 before chalking up 10 appearances in the top grade that year.
But for the blonde-haired backrower, the shift from his Townsville base represents a “fresh start”.
“I probably wasn’t enjoying my footy as much as I’d like last year, so thought I’d come down here. I’m really looking forward to the change," he said.
“We only moved last week, so still getting my house sorted and then pre-season isn’t too far away.”
Expected to add some addition starch to the Tigers' pack, Hogan has played a total of 36 Intrust Super Cup games for both Mackay and the Northern Pride.

THE engine room at Easts has a lot more grunt with new coach Craig Ingebrigtsen signing former North Queensland Cowboy Dane Hogan for the 2013 season.

Hogan, 23, joins the club from Cowboys feeder outfit Mackay Cutters, after being head-hunted by his former Redcliffe FOGS Colts coach Ingebrigtsen.
He has signed on for two years at Langlands Park.
The Bribie-Island junior brings with him 10 NRL games and three years of training with the Cowboys first-grade squad experience that Ingebrigtsen knows will add plenty to the Tigers forward pack.
And Hogan knows how to put a hit on.
"There certainly won't be a lot of sides going through the middle with Dane playing there," Ingebrigtsen said.
"We chased really hard to get him over the line. He will be a really good steading influence at our club."

Hogan said he was looking forward to joining his new team, adding that if he was called on for a leadership role he would would relish that too.
Hogan heads up an impressive list of recruits, including prop Adam Marr and former Melbourne Storm utility back Josh Jerome from Redcliffe, Sunshine Coast Sea Eagle and former Sydney Roosters under-20s fullback/centre Hughie Stanley and Sea Eagles halfback Todd Murphy. 


Former assistant Craig "Trigger" Ingebrigtsen steps up as head coach at Easts

IT is the signing that Easts hope will "Trigger" a rebirth at the club.

Former assistant Craig "Trigger" Ingebrigtsen has been officially elevated to the role of head coach at the club after two years under former mentor Troy McCarthy.
The Redcliffe junior, who had his playing career cut short through injury, is one of the brightest young coaches coming through the ranks and has already tasted premiership success.
Ingebrigtsen coached the West Panthers Fogs Colts to the title in 2008 before backing that up with a premiership win as Fogs A-grade mentor at the club.
He then joined Easts, where he has played understudy to McCarthy for the past two seasons.
With the Tigers cruelly missing out on the finals by for-and-against points alone this year, he is hoping he can inspire the young side to great things in his first gig as an Intrust Super Cup head coach.

"I'm excited about coaching such a historic club," he said. "The players and the culture at this club (are) second to none." 


Storm Under 20s. He's been in Reggies for Wynnum and Redcliffe for the last two years.

Easts should be certainties with all these great signings. ;) 


Easts Tigers Announce 2013 Coaching Line-Up

Tigers Media - Ethan James


EASTS Tigers are pleased to confirm their coaching roster for next season, with Craig Ingebrigtsen set to take the reigns as head coach of the Intrust Super Cup side in 2013.
The former assistant will take over the top job after two years spent as understudy to Troy McCarthy.
“Being assistant coach under Troy was great for me, I learnt a lot,” Ingebrigtsen said.
“We both worked really well together, we both had different skill sets and we were able to help each other out.”
With pre-season training to commence in a few weeks, Ingebrigtsen says he can't wait to knuckle down and get stuck into next year's preparations.
“I'm looking forward to it immensely, we've got a good roster. We've worked really hard the past two years and we're all looking forward to the next challenge,” he said.
“I'll communicate and be honest with the players and I'll be looking for some honesty in return.”
Ingebrigtsen coached the West Panthers FOGS Colts to the title in 2008 before backing that up with a premiership win as FOGS A Grade mentor at the club.
Easts CEO Des Morris said Ingebrigtsen understood the ethos of the club and the direction in which the Tigers want to head.
“He's got a good rapport with the players and we're more than pleased to give him the opportunity,” he said.
Ingebrigtsen will be assisted by Trent Young, who was FOGS Cup assistant coach in 2012 while also pulling on the boots in the side's run to the premiership.
The 33-year old former Tiger was a part of the club's 2004 grand final team and played a total of 15 NRL games for the South Sydney Rabbitohs from 2005 to 2006.
“He's a really level-headed guy and being an old Easts boy he understands the club too,” Ingebrigtsen said.
After guiding his side to a premiership victory in his first year as a senior coach, Scott Sipple will again take the leadership of the Tigers' FOGS Cup outfit.
In their second year at the club, David Krause and Joe O'Callaghan will act as mentors to the Colts side.

[h=2]New signings settle in at Easts[/h] [HR][/HR] November 21, 2012: Ethan James Off-season signing Hughie Stanley on day one of pre-seasion training on November 12.
Pre-season training is now in full swing at Langlands Park, with a number of new faces joining the Tigers' squad ahead of the 2013 campaign.

One of those fresh additions is former Redcliffe Dolphins hooker Tom Butterfield, who has joined the Tigers on a two-year contract.

Having spent his entire career at the Dolphins, Butterfield's decision to leave the club he grew up with was viwed by many as a bold move.

But for the 24-year old the offer of reuniting with former coach Craig Ingebrigtsen, who mentored him as a junior at Redcliffe, was too exciting to turn down.

"I've known Craig since under eights. I think he can get the best out of me... (Easts) is where I need to be," he said.

Having just returned from a holiday in Thailand, Butterfield said he was "a bit nervous" heading into day one.

"I just don't want to be at the back of the group," he laughed, speaking before his first session with the squad on Monday.

The ex-Brisbane Broncos Under 20s player is excited by the challenge of proving himself to new team mates.

"My first goal is to make the (Intrust Super) Cup squad and then from there I just want to help the team go forward and play the best I can," Butterfield said.
Another keen for a fresh start is outside back Hughie Stanley, who made the move south from the Sunshine Coast Sea Eagles.

“I wanted to go somewhere where I could challenge myself. The goal is to try and crack a spot in first grade each week,” he said.

A Rockhampton junior, Stanley’s rugby league career has already seen him traverse Australia's Eastern Seaboard.

The 22-year old played for the Lower Clarence Magpies in northern New South Wales before being recruited by the Sydney Roosters, where he played 17 Under 20s Toyota Cup games in 2011.

He then spent the past two years at the Sea Eagles.

The decision to again move base wasn't an easy one but Stanley's young family is right at home in Brisbane.

“I know a few people at the club already, so it’s not like going to a new school and having to make all new friends again,” he said.

“It was a pretty big move… but the kids settling it really well.

“When we were living up at the Sunshine Coast we were in a unit so we didn’t have a backyard. So they're loving it here, they’ve got a backyard, a pool and everything.”

The gently spoken Stanley says he will be pushing his case for the fullback jersey but will be happy to play wherever the team needs him.

Alongside playmaker Todd Murphy and centre Jake Meninga-Short, he is one of several Sea Eagles to make the off-season trek to the Tigers.

[h=2]Easts draw Souths Logan in Round One[/h] [HR][/HR]

Easts Tigers will face local rivals Souths Logan Magpies when Round One of the 2013 Intrust Super Cup kicks off on March 16-17 next year.

The Tigers must prepare for an opening month on the road, with Langlands Park unavailable due the ongoing carpark redevelopment at Easts Leagues Club.

A clash against Tweed Heads in Round 6 will be the side's first home game.

QRL Major Competitions general manager Jamie O’Connor said there was a lot for fans to get excited about leading into the new season.

“The countdown to the 2013 premiership season is well and truly underway following the release of the draw,” O’Connor said.

“The Round 1 match ups are superb and they will provide a glimpse of the excitement to follow throughout the rest of the season.

“The Intrust Super Cup really is a competition that all of Queensland can be proud of. Plans are already underway for events like the Season Launch, The-Courier Mail Medal Gala Dinner and the Grand Final to be bigger and better in 2013.”

The Round 1 clash between the Wynnum Manly Seagulls Seagulls and Redcliffe Dolphins is one of six huge matches that will kick off the 2013 season on the weekend of March 16-17.

The opening round also includes the coastal derby between Tweed Heads and the Burleigh Bears, as well as the heavyweight northern clash between the Pride and Mackay Cutters in Cairns.

Traditional rivals Souths Logan tackle the Easts Tigers at Davies Park, Ipswich is at home to 2012 nemesis Norths Devils; and the new-look Sunshine Coast Sea Eagles will host the Central Capras.

This year’s competition will again feature a top five finals format, commencing on the weekend of September 7-8.

The clubs will be pressing for a grand final berth at Suncorp Stadium on September 29.

In a slight change to the draw from previous years, the 2013 season will be played over 24 rounds with all teams having two byes.

The match-of-the-round will again be televised live on Channel 9 each Sunday from 2pm.

Two of the major highlights of the regular season are the Men of League Rivalry Round (July 6-7) and Country Week (August 3-4), while all eyes will be on the selection of the XXXX Queensland Residents team for the July showdown against New South Wales.

[h=2]Steven Thorpe to captain Tigers in Round One[/h] [HR][/HR] March 12, 2013: Ethan James

Steven Thorpe will lead the Tigers into battle against Souths Logan Magpies in Round One of the Intrust Super Cup after the Easts junior was named as skipper by coach Craig Ingebrigtsen.

The 23-year-old will start at prop alongside new signings Michael Thomas, Todd Murphy, Tom Butterfield and Dane Hogan who have all earned spots in the top thirteen.

“He (Thorpe) is a local Easts guy and he really has the club at heart,” Ingebrigtsen said.

The Tigers are set to have the services of two Melbourne Storm contracted players in the form of Mitch Garbutt and former New Zealand international Junior Sa’u, who will partner the experienced Shane Neumann in the centres.

In his first game as head coach, Ingebrigtsen says everyone at the club can’t wait to get stuck into some footy.

“We’re really keen to get started. A lot of planning has gone into our season and we’re looking forward to seeing what we get out of it,” he said.

“But at this stage, we’re just looking forward to playing our style and not really worrying too much about the opposition.

“We’re going to have to get in the grind for the first three or four games. I’m just looking to see what improvements we’ve made.”

On the back of some strong off season recruitment of their own, he expects the Magpies to be a tough proposition on their home turf at Davies Park.

“Souths are a bit of a dark horse – they recruited really well. They’ve bought really smartly and they’ve got Phil Dennis back in the halves as well. They’ll have a good side against us this week,” Ingebrigtsen said.

The Intrust Super Cup clash kicks off at 3pm, with other grades from 11:30am.

Coach Craig Ingebrigtsen has made two changes to his Intrust Super Cup team heading into the Round Two clash against Redcliffe Dolphins on Sunday afternoon.

With Junior Sa'u selected in the Melbourne Storm NRL side, Ryan Pooley is set to make his top grade debut on the wing with Eddie Tautali shifting to the centres.

Forward utility Matt Zgrajewski is the other new addition to the squad on the interchange following the Round One victory over Souths Logan.

Meanwhile, in what is a re-match of last year's decider, Hughie Stanley will play his first regular season game for the club after being named to return from injury at fullback in the FOGS Cup side.

All five grades will be in action at Dolphin Oval on Sunday, with the U16 and U18 junior representative sides to play after the main game.

Tigers Break Dolphin Oval Hoodoo

Ethan James

25/03/2013 10:10:21 AM

FOR the first time in seven years Easts returned from the Redcliffe peninsula with two competition points following a 24-10 upset over the Dolphins on Sunday afternoon.
The Tigers did it the hard way, coming back from a first half deficit to stun Redcliffe on their home turf and register their first win at Dolphin Oval since 2006.
The result even came as a slight surprise to Easts’ head coach Craig Ingebrigtsen.
“It being only round two, I wasn’t sure if we were quite ready to beat them at this point of the season,” he said after the match.
“But we just kept competing. They (Redcliffe) had a lot of ball and a lot of field position in the opening quarter of the match.
“We turned up on the inside in defence and were continually pressuring all day, so all the little things we worked on during the week, we executed really well.”
However, the match wasn’t without controversy, with Dolphins halfback Luke Capewell sent from the field towards the end of the first half for an alleged elbow in a scuffle with Easts counterpart Todd Murphy.
Ahead 10-nil at the time, Capewell’s departure appeared to rattle the Dolphins – and they never really recovered.
Easts jagged a momentum-changing try in the 35th minute when winger Michael Thomas pounced on a cross field kick.
The Tigers then went on with the job in the second stanza with two quick strikes breaking the backs of the Dolphins.
Some quick hands from his inside men saw Eddie Tautali dive over in the left hand corner before fullback Corey Thompson got the reward for a sensational personal game with a try off an error from Redcliffe custodian Joe Bond.
Murphy then put his stamp on the game when he grubbered ahead and regathered under the sticks to give his side a 20-10 advantage midway through the second half.
Bond nearly pulled off what would have been a contender for try of the season – the fleet footed fullback weaved through defenders in a 90 metre kick return before eventually being dragged down by some determined Easts cover defence.
The Tigers then finished in style with Thompson putting boot to ball for Tautali’s double.
The Intrust Super Cup victory capped off an impressive day for the Tigers, with the club also claiming the FOGS Cup and Colts fixtures.
“To be honest, that’s the best aspect. As the first grade coach I’m really happy with my team but from a club perspective that’s the thing that pleases me the most,” Ingebrigtsen said.
Easts now travel to Ipswich next Sunday for a showdown in front of the Channel Nine television cameras, while Redcliffe host Tweed Heads, who went down to Wynnum Manly in a high-scoring encounter this round.
EASTS TIGERS 24 (Eddie Tautali 2, Corey Thompson, Michael Thomas, Todd Murphy tries; Todd Murphy 2 goals) def REDCLIFFE DOLPHINS 10 (Liam Georgetown, Luke Capewell tries; Liam Georgetown goal) at Dolphin Oval. 


[h=2]Thorpe sidelined for Ipswich clash[/h] [HR][/HR] March 26, 2013: Ethan James

Coach Craig Ingebrigtsen has made one forced change heading into round three, with captain Steven Thorpe (pictured) set to miss the Intrust Super Cup match against the Ipswich Jets due to injury.
The prop fractured his hand in last week's win over Redcliffe and will be sidelined for roughly six weeks.

In Thorpe's absence, experienced centre Shane Neumann will skipper the side with Matt Zgrajewski moving into the front row.

Leon Panapa has been named to play his first Intrust Super Cup match of 2013 off the interchange.

After an impressive win over the Dolphins, Ingebrigtsen says the team is keen to "get back on the horse" ahead of the trip to North Ipswich Reserve.

"This week will be hard. I rate Ipswich and it'll be week three on the road for us too, so it'll be another big challenge," he said.

"They're a bit of a traditional rival - they're very tough through the middle in the forwards. We just need to out there with a really good attitude and try to execute the things we're good at."

The match against the Jets will be televised LIVE on Channel Nine in Queensland from 2pm on Sunday afternoon.

In FOGS Cup selection news, second rower Wiremu Ratana is named to make his return from an arm injury on the bench.

The @NRL_Bulldogs with a great pickup. Young @EastsTigers back Corey Thompson on a 2 year deal. Can play fullback, wing, centre. #NRL


Great game by the Tigers today. Not the result I expected, but they really put it on for the crowd which was decent.

I was hoping they'd reach 60, but wasn't too be. 


Easts need to go on with it now. They have the players to be a contender in an even year.

Wynnum just aren't that strong this year and this was on the cards at some stage. They have done well to be as high up as they are. The next couple of weeks will determine whether they stay in the hunt or drift out the back. I suspect the latter.
