Nathalia into big dance

By Tyler Maher

Nathalia did it the hard way, but eventually secured another Murray Football League grand final berth with an 8.5 (53) to 7.7 (49) win over Rumbalara at Mercury Dve.

Tom Nihill, Bowen Smith and Tom Boyd were the heroes for the Purples, who recovered from a scoreless first half to storm home in tough conditions.
