  Tigers cruise to big AFL win over Saints Twelve months after St Kilda mauled Richmond at Etihad Stadium, the Tigers have proved far too good for the Saints in the AFL.Dion Prestia returned to top form and Jack Riewoldt kicked four goals on his extended family's special night as the reigning premiers mauled the Saints by 54 points.

In 1947 he began two years of National Service, at first with the East Yorkshire Regiment,[6] and later as a non-commissioned officer in the Royal Horse Guards Regiment of the Household Cavalry[7] doing security work on the East German border.[8][1]. The Iron Tiger . Jack Higgins .

Higgins has played 11 games since debuting spectacularly against Hawthorn in round three.

Initially played as a small forward and kicking seven goals - or ‘snags’ as Higgins likes to call them – in his first three games, Damien Hardwick has given the 19-year-old more time in the midfield over recent weeks.

Higgins’ involvement in games has risen accordingly and he gathered 25 disposals in the Tigers’ big round 16 win over Adelaide.

As promising as his football has been, Higgins is making an even bigger impression for his half-time ‘rev-ups’ and post match interviews.
