The Nomads parlayed their strong performance against Gunnedah in the previous round into another convincing win – a 99-point triumph over the Swans at No.1 Oval.
The final score was 21.17-143 to 6.8-44.
New England put it to bed after scoring 49 points to seven in the third quarter.
Dave Richards delivered the ball with aplomb into the forward 50 for the Nomads after crumbing inexorably around half forward.
He was rewarded with a goal of his own in the fourth quarter, following a freakish snap around his body.
Nomads duo Angus Quail and Ethan Karpany timed their leads well and bagged five and three goals respectively.
Liam Dunn defended stoutly for the Swans and pinched a few defiant intercept marks when his team was haemorrhaging goals. Adam Cruickshank was notable in the ruck for the Swans.
Swans coach Paul Kelly said his side played well, expect for a 15-minute period in the third quarter when New England kicked a spat of goals that “busted the game right open”. “We got beaten easily in the end, but for three-and-a-half quarters we played really good and were really competitive,” he said, adding: “It was a really good performance, except for that 15 minutes.”
Gunnedah rebounded from their away loss to New England with a 173-point home mauling of Narrabri – the final score 30.25-205 to 5.2-32.
Jake Spackman, Mark Ewington and Ben Maher kicked seven, five and four goals respectively while Todd Dunn booted two majors for the Eagles. Patrick Higgins was best on ground for Gunnedah.
