West Coast Fever Head Coach Stacey Marinkovich says her side will attack the League-wide bye week with the same intensity that they have applied across the first eight weeks of the season.
At the halfway point of the inaugural season of Suncorp Super Netball Fever has recorded two strong victories, with wins coming against the NSW Swifts and Adelaide Thunderbirds to sit sixth on the ladder.
Despite having no game this weekend, Marinkovich said the side would have a short rest before hitting the court once again.
“It is good to have a break because the girls work tirelessly and the travel and intensity of the games week in week out is high,” she said.
“They will refresh and have a couple of days off, but they will also get stuck back into it because they want to improve, we want to improve and the Club wants to get better.”
“We want to be successful, so to do that you’ve got to take every one of those opportunities and make the most of it.”
“When we don’t have to travel, training is really important for us to be able to use that chance.”
Marinkovich said the attitude of the team had been impressive in the first half of the season.
“This team has a lot of heart and they won’t die wondering,” she said.
“That’s the part where they do show a lot of courage and they just don’t give up.”
“When you’ve got people and a team that wants to say ‘I can do better’ and ‘I’m going to work out how to do that’ it’s really pleasing as a coach because we can sit down and really look at it and take those learnings and put it into performance.”
Fever’s next clash is against the Queensland Firebirds on April 22 in Brisbane, before they return home to take on GIANTS Netball at HBF Stadium on April 30.
