Nomads outshine the Suns

June 19th, 2018

The New England Nomads Women’s team defeated the Moree Suns by 71 points. The final scores were 12.6.78 to 1.1.7.

After a sobering defeat at the hands of the Roos in their last match, the Nomads were keen to show their fans what they’ve got when they faced the Suns on Saturday. The Suns arrived in Armidale but the weather was still as cold as a gold-digger’s heart.

The New England Nomads smash the Swans

June 12th, 2018


By Ellen Dunger (Armidale Express, 07/06/2018)
The New England Nomads notched up back-to-back victories with a thrashing of Tamworth Swans on Saturday. 

After downing reigning AFL North West premiers Gunnedah Bulldogs in round eight, the Nomads travelled to Tamworth and were at their best against the Swans, scoring a 99-point win. 

At the end of the first quarter the visitors were up 6.3-39 to 2.2-14.

They nearly doubled that score by half-time to lead 9.7-61 to 4.5-29 but it was the third quarter where they grabbed the game. 

The Nomads added seven goals to the Swans’ one in the third period before going on to win the game 21.17-143 to 6.8-44.

Angus Quail topped the goal-scorers list with five. More »
