The New England Nomads are going through a patchy stage of the season.
Not in form, but in time on the field.
They spent round six of the AFL North West season on the sidelines with the bye before the long weekend pause.
They do get to play this Saturday for round seven though for an away trip against the Moree Suns before having another bye.
Player-coach James Treweeke said given the amount of off time they've had, his close-to-full-strength team is chomping at the bit for a hit out.
"The boys are pretty excited to finally get back into another game," he said.
"Just get back into the rhythm of it but then we have another bye next week, it is quite annoying really but we are happy to play a game whenever we can. We might have to work into it a little bit with three weeks off."
Moree have struggled at times to field full sides in the competition but Treweeke is expecting them to be a daunting prospect on their home turf.
"A lot of their juniors play for them and if the juniors and seniors line up for games I think they are okay with numbers," he said.
"At home they should have most of their players.
"It should actually be quite a good game.
"They have quite a few of their blokes back this year, who weren't there last year, who can actually play quite good footy so it will be interesting to see."
