After having a bye in the first round, SMW Rovers will be looking forward to starting their 2017 campaign, with their first test being Caramut at home on Saturday.

The Bulldogs missed the finals marginally last year so will be hoping that they can put together a strong performance and take home their first points of the season.

With several new faces at the club it will be interesting to see who lines up on Saturday.

Peta Byrne will be a welcomed return for Rovers in the goal circle.

Byrne’s height makes it difficult for any opposition defender so Caramut’s Naomi Attrill will have her work cut out for her again this week.

Raiha Gillett worked hard through the mid court in her previous match for the Swans but will come up against a tough opponent in Kate Higgins.

Higgins’ ability to read the play and bring the ball down the court quickly is second to none and the match-up between the two players will go a long way to deciding the final result.
