TONGALA’S A grade netball side needs to find an extra gear for tomorrow’s clash against Finley if they’re to put another win on the board.

The Blues are likely to have 10 players across A and B grade and will go into the game depleted but confident in the depth they have throughout the club.

Coach Alicia White had a couple of under 17 prospects on her radar for the away game due to some notable outs in Tracey Hughes and Serena Backman.

‘‘Finley are always tough at Finley but we’re looking forward to the challenge,’’ White said.

‘‘We thought we might have had our full team back after the bye, but it looks like it won’t be the case.’’

Sixteen-year-old Grace Hammond had been a consistent player the previous two games but finished the under 17 interleague match on crutches after a clash with Wimmera’s WD in the first five minutes of the game.

Caddison Mulholland was also unsure about taking the court still not fully recovered from her injury.

But the Blues continually find ways to triumph despite their injury troubles.

‘‘A lot of credit goes to our B grade girls,’’ White said.

‘‘Most have played A grade previously and have performed really when they’ve stepped up.’’
