After a series of practice matches against themselves and the Geelong Falcons, Head Coach Rhys Cahir believes the girls are ready for the fast and contested nature of the home and away season.
“The girls are biting at the bit to get out on the ground and show how hard they have worked this pre-season. The coaching staff and I are really pleased with the overall standard of our playing squad and are happy with the 22 players we have selected for round 1,” he said.
The first game of the season also naturally means the opportunity arises for several first gamers. There will be seven debutants in round one, congratulations to Olivia Leonard (Ballarat Swans), Katelyn Hazlett (Bendigo Thunder), Stella Bridgewater (South Warrnambool), Isabella Hill (North Ballarat), Paige Scott (Carisbrook), Zoe Cowan (North Ballarat), and Tahlia Meier (Lake Wendouree).
We encourage all Rebels fans to come down to City Oval and cheer our NAB League girls on this weekend.
