Kyabram Bombers coach still confident despite loss of star

Kyabram Bombers coach Dave Williams believes his side can overcome the loss of Nathan Beck to injury.

Kyabram coach Dave Williams is keenly looking forward to his team’s flag defence this season, despite the shattering blow of losing gun big man Nathan Beck for the season with a knee injury.

Beck has been ruled out for the season after a scan last week revealed he had torn his ACL in a practice game against Pascoe Vale.

‘‘It’s ironic, but terrible, that ‘Becky’, one of our best players, and Ash Mangan, our best netballer, have both suffered season ending knee injuries,’’ Williams said.

While acknowledging Beck is a massive loss, Williams has unbending faith he still has the players at his disposal to make a serious assault on back-to-back flags, something the club hasn’t achieved for 86 years.
