Tamworth Kangaroos made it back-to-back wins on Saturday and in the process created much-needed momentum.
After starting the season with two losses, Saturday’s 17.12-114 to 10.10-70 home defeat of Inverell was described as “very important” by Kangaroos centre half-forward Matt Hodge.
“We had two tough losses to start the year, so to get two wins on the trot, and against a quality side like Inverell, is always good to get momentum going,” he said. “Especially being a home game. We pride ourselves on not losing at our own fortress.”
Hodge said the goal now was to duplicate their first-half form for the whole match.
“We dropped off a bit in the second half, so that was a little disappointing,” he said.
Moree Suns also notched their second win of the season with a 27.31-193 to 9.9-63 thumping of Tamworth Swans.
Narrabri forfeited against New England Nomads – their third successive forfeit.
