The Queanbeyan Tigers AFL Canberra side have continued to show the club is far from the depths of local Australian Football despite the NEAFL side dropping to second last on their ladder.

Playing virtually as reserve grade role to the NEAFL side, the AFL Canberra first grade side took a big 11.22.88 to 4.3.27 win over the ANU at Dairy Farmers Park on Sunday afternoon.

And the result came just a day after their seniors suffered a huge 89-point defeat at the hands of Ainslie at the same ground.

With some players out to injury and NEAFL call-up, the Tigers dominated inside-50 possessions and yet again proved far too dominant for their opponents this season.

They are now equal with Ainslie on 40 competition points but have played one less game, ensuring their percentage stayed the competition's highest.

As has been the case in most of their matches this season, the side dominated the mid-field, and their defence was superb a long with their ability to turn over possession in their favour.

With 22 behinds their accuracy with the boot was not the best, but nonetheless, they showed why they can win the competition this season and bring silverware back to the Queanbeyan club.

They next play the Eastlake Demons back at home next Sunday morning.
