ECHUCA United’s A grade has a lot to prove when it steps onto Moama’s courts tomorrow in round two of the Murray Netball League.

When these teams last met on Good Friday the Eagles trounced home to a 46-goal win over Moama.

However a lot can happen in a year, and already we have seen two very different sides take the court in 2017.

United coach Elle Florance said Moama would be a much tougher opposition than last season.

‘‘Moama has picked up quite a few good players this season and we’re excited for our match-ups again this week,’’ she said.

It was a disappointing season opener for the Eagles, going down by two goals at home to Tongala, but Florance was looking to rectify it with a win this weekend.

‘‘There were a lot of things we can take away from our game last week against Tongala,’’ Florance said.

‘‘We’ll be picking out the positives from our game and trying to string those together this week to play a more consistent game of netball.

‘‘We have a couple of players returning from university and it’ll be good to see them back at training and as part of our squad for the weekend.’’

Florance said like most teams in round one the Eagles made a few errors, but she was glad to be playing two of the competition’s stronger sides to start with.

‘‘It really sets the standard for how the season is going to roll out,’’ Florance said.

‘‘I’m looking forward to another tough game this week.’’
