The first round of the Wimmera Netball Association season kicks off at the weekend, with some superb clashes scheduled on the courts.
With changes to many teams, the first round will be a good chance to see new teams in action, and each coach will be watching the results with an eagle eye.
A valiant Nhill – which, after having a plea to the association to not field an A Grade side this season denied – will meet its match as it troops to Anzac Park to take on 2015 premiers Warrack Eagles. With a wealth of experience, and only a few anticipated changes to the side, Warrack Eagles look to be the benchmark for the season.
They should romp home with Emma Koschitzke, Zandria Malone and Meg Werner playing major roles.
Nhill will most likely be led by the always-strong Emma Dickinson and Emma Smith.
Likewise, a dominant Minyip-Murtoa is expected to down Horsham Saints, with Kirby Knight causing headaches for Saints defenders, and the Bibby sisters, Stevie and Billie, applying strong pressure down the court. Minyip-Murtoa had a strong 2015 season, and is also looking dangerous this year.
The two thrillers of the round should be the showdowns between Horsham and Ararat and Dimboola against Stawell, with more even match-ups expected.
