The New Wakefield Plan – Harry kicks 9 as the Nomads post a win against Moree

May 7th, 2017

The New England Nomads won convincingly against the Moree Suns at the Bellevue Oval. Tom Hunt, Luke Raymond and Paddy Tobias dominated across the midfield while up forward Harry Wakefield kicked 9, Jesse Petrascu 5, and Ethan Karpany and David “Birthday Boy” Richards kicked 4 apiece. The Nomads had winners all across the park. Although the Nomads won by nearly 200 points, the game was more closely fought than this might suggest and if the Suns had kicked truly in the first quarter they would have been in the hunt. Final scores were 34.25.229 to 5.9.39. More »

It was the Nomads’ new recruits and young guns who fired and just outpaced their opposition.

Ethan Karpany nailed eight goals in the drubbing while Cameron Graham impressed with five. More »
