Uralla Tigers step up to the Big Time!
The small New England town of Uralla in Northern NSW (south of Armidale) is gearing up for their biggest ever challenge this Friday Night...
Their very own Uralla Tigers are taking on the Canberra Raiders in an Elimination Semi Final!
Well we wouldn't report it if it couldn't be true.
The story was subsequently picked up in Tuesday's edition of the Sydney Morning Herald in the 'Inside Back' column.
In fact check out this graphic overlay on Channel Nine's coverage of the Dragons v Manly Qualifying Final on September 12.

There it is - clear as day - the Canberra Raiders will play the Uralla Tigers at Canberra Stadium this Friday Night September 17 from 7:30pm on Channel Nine.
It is a slightly large stuff-up by the Channel Nine Graphics Department.
For one you'd imagine that being the official broadcaster you would have NRL delivered official logos on file... and would not need to go to google.com for your logos and somehow end up with the Uralla Tigers logo instead of the Wests Tigers one.
The differences are not exactly that subtle to be honest... somehow the 'Wests' part has been missed as a pre-requisite when the google search got underway.
