Wild west roller derby action rolls into town this Saturday as the West Coast Bombers bring "Wheels of the West" to Whanganui.

Strap on your boots, saddle up your steed and mosey on down to Jubilee Stadium to catch some hard fought roller derby shoot outs as each of the three West Coast Bombers' teams battle some tough competitors on their home turf.

Doors open at midday Saturday with the West Coast Bombers mixed gender team taking on Palmerston North's Swamp City Roller Derby's "Mash Up" team. This promises to be a demonstration of skate skills and athleticism as the locals battle it out against the neighbouring city.

The second game pits the West Coast Bombers' development team, the Stealth Bombers, against Hawkes Bay's "Twisted Sister".

The Twisted Sister team have a clean slate against the Stealthies to date and so the Bombers will be looking to turn the tables this round.

In a New Zealand first, the West Coast Bombers will field a league all men's team who are taking on a New Zealand wide invitational all mens' team full of players who represented New Zealand at the Mens Roller Derby World Cup.

The West Coast Bombers men's team will have a broad mix of NZMRD representatives, along with some up-and-coming recent intake graduates.

Tickets are available on the door: $5 for adults and gold coin for children under 13.
