Boars expect full-bore Pirates at Narrabri

Boars expect full-bore Pirates at Narrabri

Samantha Newsam July 8, 2016, Northern Daily Leader

NARRABRI knows they’ve got to improve but know they’ve got the arsenal to win their rematch with Pirates at Dangar Park today.

The two met only two weeks ago, with the Blue Boars storming home to snatch the points after the bell.

Today promises to be just as tight a struggle and Blue Boars coach Nick Lennon is fully prepared to have to weather an early storm.
