After three losses in a row Murray Bushrangers’ youth girls’ side is ready for a win.
The Bushies have been defeated by Geelong, Sandringham and Greater Western Victoria by a combined total of 30 points and this week will meet Eastern Ranges.
Up to 12 players have been noticeable absentees with commitments to either the AFL Academy or the NSW Academy.
Again there will be more changes to the line-up for coach Sam Ahmet to contend with this round.
Six players have exited the side for various reasons, notably co-captain Bec Webster and midfield ace Grace Egan are unable to play.
In a positive there is some star power coming back in for the Bushies’ trip to Warrawee Park in Oakleigh today.
Shepparton Notre duo Sophie Damon and Ada Chessor re-enter the forward line with each playing their seventh match for the season.
While Murray has been unable to gather the four points, it certainly has come close to its opponents only to fall down in minor decision making areas.
Shepparton United’s Kate Adams as well as Mooroopna’s Millie Brown and Tamara Smith were solid last week and will need to bring that intensity into another round.
