Champions back to full strength

By Matt Bedford (Armidale Express, 11/07/2014)
If the Nomads disembowelment of the Bulldogs in round four was anything to go by, a win this weekend should be a formality for the reigning champions.

But although on paper the Nomads are clear favourites, coach Zac Economou said they would not take the Bulldogs lightly. “Gunnedah have some really good players,” he said. “And there is still plenty for us to work on.”

The Nomads have used their week off to regather after losing a dozen players during the university holidays.

Even with a diminished side the Nomads have maintained their unbeaten run and look like a shoo-in for minor premiers.

But Economou said the team was a pretty determined bunch and would continue to work hard on their game.

“I don’t think we have put together a good four quarter performance this season,” he said. “We have good depth so there is a fair bit of competition to get a run.”

The game on Saturday is at Bellevue Oval at 2pm.

    Nomads,

    Pleased to read you’ve had another win. It certainly makes a difference when all the boys are back from holidays. Congratulations to Starry on his 150th.

    Keep up the hard work at training as it makes a huge difference to how you play in the games.

    Cheryl and I are having a great time. Just returned to Saintes after a visit to the Champagne area.

    All the best, Brendan
