SOUTH Toowoomba Tigers have begun the new Premier League season in solid fashion after snaring three competition points from a possible four over the weekend.

The Tigers opened their 2013 campaign with a 66-60 win over Hamilton Power at South Toowoomba Bowls Club yesterday afternoon.

The team skipped by Chris Kiepe led the Tigers charge with a 27-13 victory.

South Toowoomba travelled to Brisbane today where it drew its match with Greenslopes.

The Tigers Reserve Grade team split its weekend matches.

After scoring a thrilling 75-74 home win over Hamilton on Saturday the Tigers went down by three points yesterday to Greenslopes.

Tigers' spokesman Ron Byers said the encouraging season start was built on a strong team performance.

"It's a pretty good start for the boys built on a good all-round effort," Byers said today.

"There was plenty of good team spirit evident in the opening match at home yesterday and everyone pulled their weight well.

"Things were a bit tougher today in testing conditions.

"It was very windy and the match was played on an ordinary green.

"But everyone worked hard and they were all pretty happy with the result."

The Tigers good league start will be put to an immediate litmus test on Saturday when they host one of the competition heavyweight, Helensvale.

"We are at home again this Saturday against Helensvale in what will be a massive game for us," Byers said.

Helensvale opened its campaign on Saturday with a 90-68 win over Wynnum Manly.
