The Mullewa Saints begin their 2022 GNFL season this Sunday afternoon against Railways at the Recreation Ground, chasing their first win in more than two years.

The Saints had a bye for Round 1, while Railways suffered a 60-point loss to Brigades in the grand final rematch.

Mullewa’s league side has failed to win a match in their past two seasons and they will be hoping to get off the mark in round 2.

League coach Preston Wall said there was a lot to work on in pre-season but they were firmly focused on securing their first win.

“We’re super keen and excited to get the season underway,” he said.

Wall said his players seemed fitter in pre-season, which enabled him to focus more on ball skills.

Mullewa have added some new players for season 2022 and returning players Chris Wall and Kane Little will bring some experience to the side, while new recruits Callum Papertalk, Verlyn Mourambine, Alan MacDonald and Bradley Wrage may be the missing pieces the Saints needed.

The Saints will play their first home game of the season in round 3 against Rovers at Mullewa Town Oval.
