Rovers after first win for 2024


WANGARATTA Rovers coach Gracie Reid is hopeful her girls can take it up to Albury at WJ Findlay Oval tomorrow.

The Hawks have shown huge improvement in 2024 pushing the likes of Wangaratta and more recently Wodonga Raiders when they got within 10 goals by the final whistle last Saturday.

The Tigers have won just the one game thus far as the Hawks look to post their first win for the season.

“Our netball is in a good place at Rovers across the board,” Reid said.

“The hard work we’re putting in at training is showing on game day which is very rewarding.

“I really hope we show up against Albury and it’s a competition game because, as we’ve seen this season, if any team gets a sniff they’re a massive chance of rolling over the top.”

Albury have a new look side in 2024 and were somewhat of an unknown so Reid said her side will be focusing on their own game.

“I had a look at their side and didn’t recognise many names so they’re a bit of an unknown,” Reid said.

“We’ll just focus on our game and make sure we’re sticking to our structures and taking our time with the ball.”

Young goaler Kyia Wohlers has come into the fold over the past two rounds and impressed in her first full A grade game against Raiders, netting 21 goals.

Wohlers will be hoping she can put in another solid display against Albury.

“Kyia played a quarter two weeks ago and then played her first full game last weekend and was excellent,” Reid said.

“She shot really well and you wouldn’t have known she was playing her second game if you didn’t know her.

“She’s slotted into our team seamlessly and I’m really proud of her and what she’s been doing.”

Meanwhile, Wangaratta faces the highly touted Yarrawonga at JC Lowe Oval.

The Magpies have started the season with a bang winning all four of their matches, while Yarrawonga suffered their first loss of the season to Myrtleford last weekend.
