Queensland Country rugby league football team Richmond Tigers are roaring again. Two old boys of the mid-west town of Richmond are gearing up to stage a reunion. Mick Brown and David Crust are hunting down former Tigers players and officials, particularly those associated with the club during the 1970s and 80s. From 1975 to 1982, the Tigers were minor premiers of the Mid West League on at least four occasions and also contested the Foley Shield B-grade final in 1975, 1977 and 1981. Mick Locke, Peter Burgess, Barry Edwards and Chris Higgs were four coaches for the team during these years.
