Coming off the 2007 championship the United face a dissapointing start in their 2008 efforts with a loss on the road to their rival Nashville Kangaroos. The Roos came off the 1st bounce firing, kicking 7 goals to 1 United in the 1st term. The rest of the game was an attempt to catch up by the Chicago boys but were continuously beaten by a relentless Roo lineup that pretty much won everything off the ground and in the air.
The United will take the road loss in stride and not to heart as they prepare for the 1st home effort v. St. Louis on 31, May.
United: Burgmann (3), De Jong, Drake, Malcolm
United: Burgmann, De Jong, Malcolm, Kastilan, Uhlmann
