Kongorong has struggled to find consistency and has suffered some big losses.
Hayley Burner has been a stand-out for the Saints, providing drive through the centre and has shown her versatility, playing in defence against Robe.
Cassie Dinnison and Ange Pratt have plenty of experience between them and will put the young Hawk defenders to the test.
Down the other end of the court, Emalee Stokker has been a solid contributor for the Hawks, while having many different partners in the goal circle with her.
Georgia Bald has come up from A Reserve and has played well in the goal circle and as a capable mid-court player.
HATHERLEIGH VS ROBE Hatherleigh will have fresh legs coming off the bye as they line up at home against Robe.
Robe had a solid win against Nangwarry last weekend and will be keen to put in another good performance.
In Round 1 in the Anzac match, it was Hatherleigh who took the points.
Hatherleigh have strength all over the court with a mix of youth and experience.
Robe has shown depth in their club this season, covering their injuries and remaining competitive.
Hatherleigh’s defence line has been strong in 2021, with Maddie Redman and Sarah Broadhead combining, ably backed by Lara McGregor in the wing defence role.
Robe’s attack line has played great netball, with Sarah Laurie and Tori Gluyas working well together and shooting accurately.
Down the other end of the court, Robe has used different combinations of players, due to injury and unavailability, but Alannah Campbell has been in good form, along with Georgia Perkins.
They will have a busy day containing Maddie Pulman and Lacey Haines who have been playing well for the Eagles.
Experience through the mid-court for Hatherleigh should see them have the upper hand, with Sarah Faulkner and Tegan Merrett good to watch at their best.
TANTANOOLA VS GLENCOE The Tigers are at home this week and take on Glencoe.
Tantanoola comes into the game off the back of a big win over Kongorong, while Glencoe came out victorious against Mount Burr and would have been thrilled with their six-goal win.
Tant has been in red hot form with strong combinations in all thirds of the court.
Both teams have managed to cover a long-term injury list this season they have managed to cover and since then both sides have settled, which has no doubt helped their good form.
Both ends of the court should provide good contests this week: Emma Gould and Jami Walker for the Tigers will come up against Emily Thompson and Sarah Edwards for Glencoe.
Gould and Walker have been shooting well and work well together but Edwards and Thompson have been a very impressive defensive unit and will make the Tiger duo earn their goals.
Down the other end, the Murphies’ Caitlan Hentschke has been consistent in goals, ably backed by Laura Edwards.
The Tigers’ defence line of Tayla Rowe and Kate Bromley provide a good mix of youth and experience and will not give an inch, making the Glencoe girls earn every goal.
This game could go either way, with great match ups at both ends as well as through the mid court.
MOUNT BURR VS KALANGADOO Mount Burr is at home this week and takes on the undefeated Magpies.
Mount Burr is coming off of a six-goal loss to Glencoe while Kalangadoo was not pushed by Port MacDonnell and claimed the points at home.
Mount Burr would be disappointed with its loss to Glencoe and will look to bounce back this week.
This match will be a great spectacle.Mount Burr’s defence team of Heidi Clark and Madi Haggett have been listed in the best players regularly and are playing great netball.
The Pies’ goalies, Melissa Russell and Abbey Duncan, have also been in superb form, shooting with high accuracy.
This battle will be an enthralling one to watch.
Down the other end of the court, Ebony Clark and Sarah Nulty have also been in good form and shooting accurately but they will be pushed and placed under pressure this week with Chelsea Croser and Mikaila Pitt working well together in the absence of Chloe Pratt for the Magpies.
The mid-court battle will also be one to watch, with Jayde Peacock and Jane Auld strong for the Pies while Laura Schultz has been consistent for the Mozzies.
Port MacDonnell has the bye this week.
