Preliminary Final Loss (a very belated report) for the Men’s team

The New England Nomads season ended prematurely in the preliminary final losing by 4 points to the Gunnedah Bulldog. There was a chance of a goal after the siren but unfortunately Snowy was way too far out, It was a brave effort by the Nomads who were short because of uni holidays. Only having one on the bench did not help the cause inmates what were very hot conditions. Best for the Nomads was Angus Quail in what was a standout performance. Goalscorers were A. Quail (3), D. Richards (2), N. Locke (2), L. Cudmore, W. Gardner

The final score was Gunnedah Bulldogs 10.11 (71) to the Nomads’ 9.13.(67).
