Forfeits for both the Women and the Men

June 21st, 2021

In part due to Uni holidays—although not only because of the holidays—both the Men’s and the Women’s teams forfeited on Saturday against the Gunnedah Bulldogs which was a real shame. The Under 14s were the only ones to fly the Nomads flag on the weekend. So well done to Neil’s crew.

The teams need to get back on track over the next few weeks.

Nomads Men win on Phill Mitchell’s 50th game

June 14th, 2021

So on June 5th, in Phill Mitchell’s 50th game for the club, the Nomads eventually defeated the Tamworth Kangaroos in what was an exciting game of football, with both high levels of skill and good sportsmanship being on display. The old stagers Phill Mitchell and Tom Hunt were at their usual brilliant best, as were Noah Connick and Conor Nest. But in the final stages of the last quarter it was the mercurial brilliance of Modra and Clarrie that tipped the balance in the favour of the Nomads. The game also saw the welcome return of 2012 premiership player and former Nomads Auskicker, Caleb Dobos who chipped in with 3 goals. It must be said that this Roos squad is best side we have played against all year, with the Roo’s precision kicking, clever running and high marking causing all sorts of troubles for the Nomads. A wonderful match to celebrate Phill’s time with the Nomads. Final scores were the Nomads 12.15.87 to the Roos 10.8.68.

Nomads Women dealt a narrow loss at Bellevue

June 6th, 2021

This Saturday had us hosting the Tamworth Roos at the spiritual home of football in the New England, Bellevue oval. Coming off a strong win the previous week and with good numbers this week we were set to notch up another victory. The Roos squad had no intention of giving up a win on the road and so the stage was set for good hit out. Both teams played with 16 with no bench. A shock for the Roos but just another day in the office for our girls. A fast start by the tourists set the tone for the rest of game and our girls just couldn’t claw back the deficit. When all was said and done, the final margin was only 11 points with the final score line being 3.3.21 to 5.2.32.

Sharp kicks nine, Clarrie Shines and the Nomads Looking Better with a win against the Swans

June 4th, 2021

With a best on ground performance by Clarrie Barker, ably assisted by comrades-in arms Tom Hunt, Charlie Paine and Modra, and with new comer Pat Sharp kicking 9 majors, the Nomads were able to defeat the ladder leaders the Tamworth Swans relatively comfortably. Making much greater use of the spine than perhaps was the case in the halcyon days of 2012-2016, the Nomads played a direct hard-runnings style of football/ Phill Mitchell was his usual zen-backman self in the last line of defence and Benji Dutaillis and Charlie Paine kicked two goals each. Unfortunately the Nomads suffered two major injuries with both Tom Moscou and Lewis Wheatley breaking collarbones. The final scores were Nomads 16.8.104 to the Swans 10.13.73.
