Southern Riverina news - - SPORT -

Natalie Green (GK): Great de­fender and re­bounder who also reads the play. Moves the ball well out of de­fence.

Lou Han­mer (GD): Reads the at­tack­ing team’s move­ments and an­tic­i­pates in­ter­cep­tions cre­at­ing many turnovers. Strong ball move­ment out of de­fence. Great as­set. Hol­lie New­ton (WD/GK):

De­fends the at­tack­ing moves of her op­po­nent well and is al­ways ready to scoop up any de­flec­tions cre­ated by the cir­cle de­fend­ers. Can also play a de­fen­sive role. Macken­zie Cheese­man

(WA/C): Youngest mem­ber of the team and a first year se­nior player. Quick off the line and can cre­ate many turnovers in the mid-court.

Kim Barry (WD): Plays a tight de­fen­sive role and main­tains pres­sure at all times. Great team player.

Kelly Ni­cholls (WA): Had a great start to the year but in­juries have side­lined her for the lat­ter part of the sea­son. At­tacks the ball well and de­liv­ers the ball strongly down the court.

Sarah Wray (C): Vice­cap­tain. Plays the link player from the de­fen­sive third to

the goal third ex­cep­tion­ally well. Makes strong at­tack­ing moves and com­bines with the WA to de­liver the ball to the shoot­ers.

Lisa Landy (WA/GD): Has the abil­ity to play both ends. Com­bines well with the mid­court to bring the ball down the court. Also a strong feed into the shoot­ers. Nicky Burke (GA):

Play­ing-coach. Played her 300th se­nior game this sea­son and a player that has won a best and fairest in

ev­ery grade. Moves and po­si­tions well down the court and is an ac­cu­rate shooter. Is al­ways po­si­tioned well to re­bound. Rose Siev­ers (GS/GA):

Cap­tain. A player who has con­tin­u­ally strength­ened her game, and an ac­cu­rate shooter who moves well in the cir­cle and re­bounds well. Te­meka Mac­don­ald (GS/

WD): First year at Blighty and a val­ued as­set. An ac­cu­rate long shot and reads the play well. Can also switch to a de­fen­sive role.

(Back) Kim Barry, Lou Han­mer, Rose Siev­ers, Te­meka Mac­don­ald, Holly New­ton, Nat Green; (front) Macken­zie Cheese­man, Sarah Palmer, Kelly Nichols and Nicky Burke. Ab­sent: Lisa Landy.
