Coff Harbour Suns on the road
KNEE injuries that have ended the seasons of the Bourke sisters has left the Coffs Harbour Suns with only six senior players when the women’s team faces Newcastle this evening in the Waratah League encounter.
Both Piper and Scout were recently given the bad news but coach Connie Woods said it gives the opportunity for the Suns to show how much spirit there is within the squad.
“We’ve always been a transition side so we’ll stick to what we do best and hopefully there’s enough spirit to hang in there through the game,” she said.
The absence of senior players provides an opportunity for under-18s players Rachael McGinniskin and Ashleigh Fasala to make their debut at State League level.
If the girls have got it tough, the men have got a double dose.
The Suns men have a weekend double header playing in maitland today before stopping in at Port Macquarie on the way home to face the Dolphins tomorrow.
