West Coast Fever prepares for New Zealand road trip

WEST Coast Fever has hit the road for consecutive games in New Zealand following their first loss of the season last Sunday.

The Fever plays the Southern Steel on Saturday and the Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic nine days later.

Fresh from their loss against the NSW Swifts, Fever coach Stacey Rosman said the road trip was important for their 2016 campaign.

“I’ve been really impressed by how the players have responded to Sunday’s result,” Rosman said.

“They’ve applied themselves thoroughly to the review and training process so far this week.”

Steel are on top of the New Zealand conference with three wins and a draw.

“From what we’ve observed across the opening weeks Steel has made significant gains as a team, particularly in defence,” Rosman said.

“Their ability to score also remains a threat to any opposition.”
