COLAC Tigers have their best chance of a netball victory when they meet North Shore tomorrow.
The Tigers have gone winless in their first two rounds of competition, which mirrors the efforts of North Shore.
The Seagulls have lost back-to-back games against St Marys and Lara and will hope to reverse that trend against Colac at Windsor Park.
The Tigers lose league best and fairest Shelley Scott, ankle, for the clash but have an otherwise unchanged line-up.
Tigers coach Rebecca Finn said her team needed to settle its structures against North Shore.
“We need a couple of new combinations to work on, our goaling combination and our centre-wing combinations are struggling a bit at the moment,” she said.
“But defensively we are really quite settled.”
Finn said North Shore might be winless but the Tigers needed to go into the match with a winning mindset.
“They have improved this year and Shelley will be a big loss for us,” she said.
“We will be trying a couple of new moves just to look at where we can improve.”
Colac’s next month includes games against reigning premiers South Barwon, Lara and St Marys.
Finn said the Tigers were having a “building year” but she wanted the team to be competitive in every game.
“We know there are tough games ahead but as long as we put in a competitive effort each week and make sure we give our players an opportunity we’ll be okay,” she said.
“Alana Park hasn’t played A Grade and Emma Hillman is new to the league so we need to build on our experience each week.
“I do expect us to be very competitive coming up against the big name teams.”
