Round eight of Wimmera league netball kicks off on Saturday, following a break from interleague.
The game to watch will be the match between Dimboola and Stawell, with Stawell sitting just beneath the Roos in sixth place on the ladder.
Dimboola will be riding high after a strong win over Ararat in round seven, while Stawell had a narrow loss to Saints after leading for three quarters.
Stawell can’t afford to take its foot off the pedal this week, especially as the last time these two teams met there was only one goal separating them at each quarter break, until Dimboola edged away in the last quarter to win by five goals.
Stawell’s defence has been looking tight, with Lisa Fleming and Maddison Jelly earning regular mentions in Stawell’s best, but they will need to shut down the in-form combination of Tamara Exell and Billie Jo-Barber in the Roos’ ring to have an impact.
Dimboola, on the other hand, seems to be gelling well as a team, and has versatility across the court.
Warrack Eagles are coming off a loss to Minyip-Murtoa and should expect to recoup against the Tigers this week when they travel to Nhill.
