It’s been one of the toughest starts to a season the New England Nomads have experienced in recent years but the Armidale-based side is determined to get their season back on track – starting with this Saturday’s clash against premiers Gunnedah.
The Nomads opened their 2018 account with an 88-point thumping of the Bulldogs but have since forfeited twice and lost to Narrabri in their most recent encounter. 

“They are on the top-of-the-table and in the last two weeks they have scored over 200 points in both games so they are absolutely flying at  the moment,” player-coach James Treweeke said.

“We had a tough loss two weeks ago against Narrabri, low on numbers.” 
Of the coming Bulldogs clash, Treweeke said it provides the perfect opportunity bounce back.

“If we can get up over Gunnedah I think it will hold us in good stead for the rest of the season,” he said.

“If we keep with them the whole game and it is a close match, I will be happy.

“It will be good test ourselves against the leading team in the comp so we are looking forward to it.”
