BENALLA V ROCHESTER
This is a golden opportunity for Rochester to stay in touch with the top six when it travels to Benalla.
The Saints were beaten by the undefeated Mooroopna by 41 goals last weekend while the visiting Tigers come into the contest off the back of a commanding victory over Mansfield.
Meg Morrison, Olivia Dalton, Ella Sheehan and Mikaylah Lessing were some of the girls who put in four quarter efforts against the Cats last weekend.
They will need to fire again to combat the likes of Morgan Dingwall, Ella Roulston and shooter Teal Hocking who scored 41 goals last weekend in the big win over Mansfield.
If Hocking can continue her form, then the Tigers should get the win.
SHEPPARTON UNITED V KYABRAM
Shepparton United will be looking to chalk up its second win of the season when it welcomes the winless Kyabram to Deakin Reserve.
Despite not winning a game in 2023, the United coaches will be warning their playing group against complacency.
Georgie Walpole, Liv Kirby and Laura Cole have been some of the shining lights for the re-building Demons.
Kyabram shooter Alyssa Trebilcock has been one of the Bombers shining lights along with last year’s A-grade runner-up in the Wellman Medal count, Hollie Reid and Elivia Hall.
If the Bombers can start well and put some scoreboard pressure on then anything is possible.
Tip: Shepparton United.
SEYMOUR V SHEPPARTON
This will be a fantastic game of netball between the reigning premier and one of the contenders for this year’s premiership.
Despite a slow start to the season, the Bears have won their past two matches to be firmly entrenched in the top six.
Bree Robinson, experienced defender Ash Cann, fellow defender Lily Murphy and gun shooter Jane Cook will be important as the Bears try to continue their good form.
Coach Tracey Brereton will welcome this challenge of travelling down the highway to take on the Lions.
She knows she can trust the playing group if the game gets tense and tight in the last quarter, especially after they had to stave off a fightback from the Swans last weekend.
Courtney Aldous, Olivia Barry and premiership defender and winning interleague skipper Sarah Szczykulski will be important players for the Lions.
If they can continue their good form and ensure shooters Ellie O’Sullivan and Jessica Lallo can get the supply, then the Lions will fancy their chances of getting the win.
EUROA V ECHUCA
Euroa will be looking to continue its hot form after it handed Tatura its first loss of the season last weekend.
That win helped the Magpies climb to second on the ladder.
Tylah Marchbank, Kellie Davidson and Eliza Hoare were the shining lights in the win.
Echuca had a strong 27 goal win over last year’s runner-up Shepparton United last weekend to consolidate its place in the top six.
Shooters Bianca Willis, Belinda Lees and Sheridan Townrow were all strong in the win.
Lauren Jones and Ash Mangan will have big jobs on their hands to try and restrict the influence of Euroa shooters, Mia Sudomirski and Bree Poole.
Sudomirski has been a revelation since joining the Pies and she has scored at least half of Euroa’s 403 goals this season.
I am going for Euroa to continue their winning form.
MOOROOPNA V MANSFIELD
Mooroopna will be looking to continue its undefeated start to 2023 when it welcomes the winless Mansfield.
Ella Ogier was on fire in the attacking goal circle last weekend with 30 goals.
The Cats have managed to find other avenues to goal since the season-ending knee injury talented young shooter Dayna Williams.
The Cats will look to Bree Hanslow and some of its talented youngsters on the playing roster, including interleague under-17 representative Sienna Burke to lead the way.
Darcy Croxford-Demasi, Emily Hutchins and shooters Isobel Anderson 18 goals and Meg Mahoney 12 goals will be doing their best to try and lead the visitors to a drought-breaking win.
SHEPPARTON SWANS V TATURA
The Shepparton Swans faces a massive challenge when it welcomes Tatura to Princess Park.
The Bulldogs will be desperate to bounce back from their first loss of 2023, when it was out-played by Euroa last weekend.
Coach Fiona Boyer will be hoping the loss was a bump in the road and that her girls are strong enough to rebound.
The Swans will look to skipper Chelsea McDonald, Klarindah Hudson and Sarah Down to continue their good form to give the home team a chance of causing an upset.
Tatura will look to Jasmine Fraser, Molly Boyle, Taylor Rokahr and shooter Julia Clarke to try and get the win and stay in touch with the top two teams on the ladder.
