THERE was no stopping the New England Nomads on the weekend as they continued their dominance in the 2016 Tamworth AFL competition.
The Nomads travelled to Gunnedah to take on the Bulldogs on a wet afternoon but there was no dampening the New England side’s spirit as they trounced their hosts 159 points to 53.
Coach Jed Ellis-Cluff said although the scoreline made it look like a big victory for his side, the Bulldogs managed to keep his side on their toes during the match. “It was a lot closer than the scoreline said,” he said.
“We kicked away at the end.
“They won the third quarter.
“It was a pretty scrappy match because it was a little bit wet from the rain in the morning.”
Ellis-Cluff believed his side let themselves down in the third quarter, with some poor decision making.
He said the Nomads faltered in the skills department and the Bulldogs were able to capitalise from their poor execution.
“We switched off a little bit and they lifted as well,” Ellis-Cluff said.
“We are just going to work on being a bit more careful with our skills.
The Nomads will enjoy this weekend off before they host the undefeated Inverell Saints on Saturday, May 14.
Ellis-Cluff said his side will have to be on their game and clean their errors to be competitive against the Saints.
“We are looking forward to that game,” he said.
“The under 16s will be playing before us too so it should be a good day.”
