The continued growth of rugby in Launceston has seen the Tigers start a full team in the second grade championship division.
After the club's first grade team was promoted to the top division last season, the success paved the way for younger players to get involved in the sport.
"This is the first time in probably 15-odd years that the Launceston club's been able to field a first and second grade side," Tigers president Isaac Anderson said.
"We were able to use our momentum from last year and recruit really well and now we have two sides which is really exciting for the club."
The championship division Tigers have started the season in dominant fashion, trouncing the Taroona Penguins 55-5 before downing the Eastern Suburbs Roosters 49-17.
"The first game they played they won by 50, the second they won by 32 so they're certainly a very strong team for that division," Anderson said.
"They've shown in the first two rounds that they're favourites to win out ... it depends, but they've done really well so far."
The team includes 17-year-old talent Elijah Agaiava, who's been selected for the Tasmanian under-18 Rugby Union team.
"Elijah's a special player - his father played for our club for about 15 years," Anderson said. "He hasn't really had the chance to play because there's been some issues with juniors and having that up here.
"But he's come through, he's 17 years old and his first two games ever I think he's scored four tries across them and been one of our better players in both those games."
With the Tigers club only having been back in operation for a couple of years, Anderson said the growth and success in recent years was great.
"It's really pleasing to see and it's a credit to all the players and how invested they are in trying to make the club as good as it can be," he said.
"We've also got new coaches who have come in this year and they're really created an environment and a product people want to play for."
