Injury woes over, but too late
THE finals' hopes of the injury-riddled Alloway Purple are all but over, but coach Shelley Naumann hopes to finish the season on a high note with a defeat of Across The Waves Blue.
The team's finals hopes rest on a Hervey Bay forfeit, or a deduction of competition points from the side.
“It would take an absolute miracle for the girls to see finals netball this year, but they're eager to get out there and make their last outing a memorable one,” she said.
“Finals are a pretty long shot now, but that's no excuse to throw in the towel.
“We want to show what we're capable of at full-strength,” she said
Naumann has a full complement of players at her disposal for the first time in seven weeks after shooters Mickayla Johnson, Hayley Savage Tanya Peall and Katherine Miles all succumbed to injury in the business end of the season.
“It dealt us a pretty heavy blow, but the girls are all back and they're keen to get back on the court,” she said.
“We want to finish on a high and go out there and play the sort of netball we were playing before all the injuries.”
