Matildas striker Michelle Heyman pulled on the green and white stripes for the first time this season on Sunday against NWS Koalas.
The 29-year-old slotted straight into the starting lineup and showed her class, constantly threatening the Koalas defence throughout the match. Despite not finding the back of the net, a first goal for the club is not far away based on Sunday’s performance!
Michelle is the fourth Matildas representative to play for the club this season, alongside Eliza Campbell, Ellie Brush and Servet Uzunlar.
Tigers finished the match 2-1 victors thanks to a spectacular winner from Hannah McNulty, extending our unbeaten run to six matches!
The team is back at home this Sunday at NTRA, hosting defending champions and current ladder leaders Manly United FC.
First Grade kicks off at 3pm, Reserve Grade at 1.05pm – come on down and support the players!
