The Tigers’ leaders rose to the challenge, with Karyn Beeson, Charli Wicksteed, Megan Bain and Brooke Edwards standing up in the middle to give Bond plenty of opportunities in the forward line.

Rising starts Brigitte Morgan and Pania Kara worked hard for the Sharks as they have all year, but found it hard to get out of tackles from the bigger bodies of the Tigers.

The highlight of the match for South Bunbury came in the third term, when star forward Bond kicked her fifth of the day and her 150th of the year, before booting two more to finish with seven for the day.

The win means the Tigers remain on top of the ladder and eight points clear of second placed Bunbury, while Dunsborough are in last place without a win.
