MILDURA Tigers progressed to this weekend’s Sunraysia Rugby League grand final with a hard-fought preliminary final win over reigning premiers Robinvale Storm.

The game was streamed live to Robinvale Storm players Solomone Fuavao and Sione Taimani who are recovering from a tragic road crash in Melbourne hospitals.

The second-placed Tigers and third-placed Storm were eager in defence, which meant points were hard to come by throughout the match at Nichols Point Reserve.

Unseasonably warm August weather also played a part in the sides struggling with energy levels and rushing their plays.
