It is a much feted victory, a long time in the making, as its been thirty seven years since the Tigers last Premiership. A fairytale win, akin to the Western Bulldogs 2016 great victory over the marauding Sydney Swans. A repeating tale of underdog Victorian team wins against much favoured Interstate rival.
