Tigers’ keen team on court
Injuries and unavailability have cruelled the Redink Homes Midwest Tigers ahead of this weekend’s double header against the Wheatbelt Flames.
However, coach Adelle Auld is remaining positive ahead of the road trip despite the challenges ahead.
“It’s probably not the strongest team we’ve put on the park this year, but it will definitely be the keenest,” she said.
“We’ve got our captain Rosie Keeffe back this weekend and she’s a real talker for the team and gets the girls motivated.”
Young star Taya Austin will again be part of the set-up and is expected to line-up in one of the shooting roles.
However, regular GS Billie Prunster will not be making the journey because of work commitments.
Auld said she would be urging her players to show greater energy on transition to help move the ball from the back court.
“We seemed to get a bit flat in the centre court during our last game, so we need a bit more smooth transition through the centre third to give our goal shooters the best opportunity,” she said.
The Tigers will play their double header at the State Netball Centre in Perth tomorrow at 6pm, and on Sunday at 9am.
