Nomads win the right to host the 2016 Grand Final

August 28th, 2016

The New England Nomads have won the right to host the grand final after beating the Tamworth Kangaroos by 87 points at the Bellevue Cathedral in what was a hard fought battle. Winger Luke ‘Rambo’ Raymond and captain David ‘Rampaging’ Richards were best afield while ever dependable Zac Economou kicked four goals. Brett Grant did an excellent job as a shutdown defender, keeping the Roos most damaging forward goal-less. Big Jim Treweeke, Clarrie Barker and Tom Hunt also were standouts but there was not a weak link across the ground. Final scores were 15.19.109 to 3.4.22. More »
