Nomads set to tackle Saints

By Pete Diskon (Armidale Express, 12/05/2006)
After a gruelling start to the season on the road the Inverell Saints will welcome the opportunity to play their first home game for 2006 on Saturday night.

Varley Oval hosts its first ever game of AFL under lights when the Saints host the New England Nomads in the match of the round.

The Nomads pushed last years premiers the Cats to a draw in their game at Armidale on the weekend and will be keen to continue their improving form in 2006.

They will come up against a Saints outfit that are battered and bruised after two hard games against the Tamworth sides in successive weeks.

The Saints main injury worry is Inverell’s player of the year for 2005, Luke Selig.

The Saints will be out to impress with their first home game of the season and will be hard to beat. The game will kick off under lights at 6.45pm.

In other games the Narrabri Eagles are at home to a struggling Gunnedah with both sides looking for their first win of the season.

The Tamworth Swans will host the reigning premiers the Muswellbrook Cats in a replay of last season’s grand final.

This match is expected to be another bruising encounter with both sides having a tendency to play a no holds barred brand of footy.

The Swans having the home ground advantage.

Kangaroos have the bye.
