A match under lights between Kyabram and Euroa will shed more light on the outlook of these two sides this Goulburn Valley League season.
While the Bombers did not show their full potential last week against Mooroopna, there is more to come from the new-look side.
Madison Fitzgerald showed ability to convert her shots and can form an effective goaling duo with Emma Roberts if the pair is given time.
But plenty of nerves and a bit of first game rust was evident from both sides as Kyabram looks to shake that off in anticipation of its first home match of the season.
There will be plenty occurring at Kyabram Recreation Reserve, with the seniors unveiling their premiership flag prior to the football and netball starting.
But the netballers will stay focused on the task at hand with more shuffling around of positions this week when they meet the Magpies as combinations are far from being settled.
One that may prove long lasting is Rebecca Squires’ partnership with Rachel McCormack-Vick with the duo responsible for putting plenty of pressure on in the defensive end.
While they were competitive against Mooroopna’s Lauren Murray and Lauren Reidy, who are relative newcomers to A-grade, Euroa’s attack is its strength.
Between playing coach Laura Emanuelli, Kali Frost and Deanne Tuppen there is much to watch out for with differing styles coming from all three shooters.
The Magpies have plenty to build on after meeting grand finalist Shepparton United in round one.
While the goalers were superb once the ball entered their hands, a lack of supply meant there were limited options and the team will look to consolidate its midcourt.
With both sides on the way up, the match is anyone’s for the taking.
