Poker boys are hot
FIVE months ago, the On Tilt touch combination was a team of poker players having a bit of fun on a Monday night in men’s B-grade fixtures.
They had runs of eight losses in succession and then 10 wins in a season that finished with a 17-8 grand final victory on Monday night against Chicks and Some.
The team was sponsored by Narelle Colston, of Texas Holdem Poker.
Captain Anthony Dyson said he played poker four nights a week.
“Touch was a chance to get fit and bring the boys together,” Dyson said.
After winning B-grade, the side is determined to go up a grade for the new season and not be just making up the numbers in A- grade.
“We want to win A-grade next season,” Dyson said.
The team name On Tilt relates to a player struggling in a game of poker.
There was no mixed touch last night due to State of Origin rugby league.
Mixed grand finals will be played on Wednesday and be followed by presentations, including some end-of-season individual awards.
