The weather threw the Tamworth Kangaroos a curve ball over the weekend but it didn't stop the club from putting on a special day.
With the help of the Gunnedah Bulldogs, the Roos were able to shift the Zeb Taylor Memorial Round clash to Wolseley Oval after rain saw the AFL grounds in Tamworth closed.
Taylor's wife Kristy and daughter Asta were able to make the trip to Gunnedah as well.
Asta did the coin toss before Tony Bishop presented her with a Kangaroos jersey which had Taylor's number 33 on the back.
"Kristy got back to us and said she's going to frame it for her down the track," Kangaroos president Brett Douglas said.
"She sent us an email to thank us for the day."
Douglas said Asta "looked right at home" in the blue and white jersey.
"She was pretty chuffed, I think, to wear it there all afternoon. It was good. That's something special for her down the track," he said.
On the field, the men took another step toward securing a top two finish with a 16.14 (110) to 11.8 (74) win over the Bulldogs.
They sit one win clear of New England and Inverell who both have eight wins.
The Swans are next with seven wins and the Bulldogs just outside the four with six wins.
The Roos take on Moree-Narrabri this weekend where a win would lock up a top two finish.
Douglas said the men's side hoped to secure a second chance in the finals.
Meanwhile, the Roos women's side went down to the Poochettes in a match where Gunnedah did the bulk of their scoring in the last quarter.
"The girls, they stuck with Gunnedah for a fair bit," Douglas said of the 1.0 (6) to 4.4 (28) loss.
"In the last quarter, they kicked a couple goals and we had our chances to get pretty close. We missed one from right in front... we would have got within three points then."
