Tigers’ keen team on court

Geraldton Guardian - - Sport - Matthew Wood­ley

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.
