Danger games in Aussie rules comp

By Peter Diskon, Armidale Express (29/06/2007)
The unbeaten Inverell Saints face a danger game against the vastly improved Tamworth Kangaroos at Varley Oval on Saturday.

Undisciplined play in the frist half of the match against Gunnedah last week could have cost them dearly except for the efforts of a handful of players.

Senior coach Dick Gleeson let the team know in no uncertain terms what he thought and the Saints put in a much more Saints like performance in the second half.

The Roos will be fresh after the bye last week and will be keen to continue teir recent good and improving form.

The Roos are always a tough side to beat and if the Saints start against the Roos the way they did against the Bulldogs last week they could find themselves in trouble.

This will be a hard game on what could be a rain affected Varley Oval and the Saints will have to be at the top of their game to overcome the Roos.

The Muswellbrook Cats are at home to the Tamworth Swans who casused one of the biggest upsets of the season last weekend when they defeated the New England Nomads.

The Cats are always hard to beat at home but the Swans will be full of confidence and if they get a full compliment of players to travel they are capable of pushing the Cats all the way.

The Cats, without their recently departed star forward Ryan McEvoy, will be keen to show the rest of the league they are not a one-man-band and they should overcome the improving Swans in what should be the game of the round.

In the third match of the weekend between New England and the Bulldogs offers the chance of an upset.

The Nomads were soundly beaten last week by the Swans and the gallant Bulldogs pushed the Saints all the way to the finish line and at times during the match showed the improvement.
