Round 2 will mark Robe’s first game for the 2022 Mid South Eastern Netball Association season as well as being the match of the weekend.
The young side will look to come out on top of the Tantanoola Tigers, who had a significant win over Nangwarry last week.
Tantanoola’s Kate Bromley and Tayla Rowe will put pressure on Robe’s goalies and possibly create a few turnovers for their team.
The return of Annie Hunter to Robe’s side will add confidence and help to steady the ball down the court, feeding the ball with accuracy into Sarah Laurie and Tori Gluyas.
After a tough fight Robe may prove to be too much for Tantanoola and they will come away with the points.
Hatherleigh coming off a good win last week will be full of confidence against Nangwarry despite missing playing coach Tegan Telfer.
Shandeen Balshaw and Shannon Higgins in Nangwarry’s defensive circle will put the pressure on any goalies the Eagles utilises.
Hatherleigh’s strength through the midcourt will allow them to pick off the loose balls and convert centre passes to add to their score.
The Eagles’ defensive combination of Lara MacGregor and Sarah Broadhead will create pressure for the Saint’s shooters, limiting their scoring opportunities. The Eagles should finish the day with another win.
After a close game against Hatherleigh in Round 1, Mount Burr will look to get their first points on the board against Glencoe this week.
Maddi Haggett and Olivia Dean’s pressure in the goal circle will make it tough for Glencoe’s Jenna Paproth and Malinda Markiewicz.
Ebony Clark will combine well with Zoe Brown and shoot accurately for the Burr; however, any misses will be rebounded with strength by Glencoe’s Sarah Edwards and Chantelle Cocks.
But the Murphies will hope for another win this week after overcoming the might of Kalangadoo.
The Magpies will be eager to redeem themselves after last week’s loss against Glencoe and will come out firing against Kongorong on Saturday.
Estella Serle and Kori Collins will combine well in the goal circle and fight hard against Kongorong’s defenders for any loose balls.
Tilah Buckingham’s accuracy in the goal circle will make it hard for Kalangadoo defenders to rebound any missed shots.
Lauren Kain should return to the Kalangadoo line up this week, adding strength to their defensive end which could be pivotal when the final whistle is blown.
