Narrabri Eagles eyeing two straight when Swans visit

NARRABRI Eagles have the chance to win successive Tamworth AFL matches when they host Tamworth Swans at Leitch Oval, Narrabri today.

The Eagles also come off their first win over Gunnedah Bulldogs in Gunnedah last Saturday where they booted 14.13 97 to the Bulldogs’ 10.13 73.

Captain-coach Todd Dunn kicked four goals for the Eagles and, with the likes of ruckman Thomas Craig (2gls), Mark Barrow and Dylan Segundo, swooped for the club’s first win since returning from a two-year break.

The Swans are coming off a local derby loss to Tamworth Kangaroos when they were swamped in the second half by a Dean Hoy-inspired Roos.

Hoy kicked seven of his 11 goals in the final quarter, helping turn a three-goal advantage into a 55-point success.

Brad Rees, Luke Robinson, Daniel Johnson, Rhett Graham and Daniel Leon all starred for a Roos outfit who play Inverell Saints at No 1 Oval, Tamworth today.

The Saints are coming off a disappointing 58-point loss to reigning premiers New England Nomads.

Dave Richards was one of the Nomad goalkicking stars again, the diminutive forward booting four goals and Matt Folpp three.

Weston Whitby, Tom Granleese, coach Zac Economou, Johnathon Frost and Richards all starred for the rampaging and unbeaten competition leader who head to Gunnedah to tackle the Bulldogs.

Matthew Wykniet kicked five goals for the Bulldogs last week and was outstanding for the John Woolaston-coached side along with James Mack, Luke Curgenven and Andrew George.
