After winning a grand final at his first attempt, Matt Henery is looking to help return Gundagai to the top of Group Nine once more.
Winning a reserve grade title earlier in the day, Henery came off the bench as an teenager when the Tigers broke their premiership drought in 2015 before being part of losses to Southcity in 2016 and 2017.
He’s hoping history won’t repeat against the Bulls on Saturday.
“It was a good way to start and I’ve probably been in more than a lot of people have in their lifetime at a young age,” Henery said.
“The 2015 one was against Junee so it would be good to get one over Southcity.”
A workplace injury saw him miss the last round of the season, but he’s ready to go for the game at Equex Centre.
The 23-year-old has a big job in the front row taking on the likes of Hayden Jeans and Nick Skinner and is looking forward to the challenge.
“They are a strong, fit pack and probably the best forwards in the comp really all in one team, but it should be a good match up,” he said.
