South  Mildura’s Georgia Chase is in the mix to fill the position left vacant by usual Bulldogs goal attack Demi Toms.

SOUTH Mildura A Grade netball coach Lorretta Thompson has a conundrum to solve ahead of the Bulldogs’ clash with Robinvale Euston at Euston today.

Star goal attack Demi Toms is away, leaving the reigning premiers with a hole to fill.

The tall rising star missed last week’s loss to Irymple and is still away for the next two weeks.

“She has big shoes to fill so we’ve got to work around that and use what we’ve got,” Thompson said.

Youngster Illy Sovau was tried out last week, with Georgia Chase and Yasmin Thompson in the mix to be given a chance now.

“(Yasmin) will bench whether or not she takes the court will depend on the game,” Thompson said.

“It’s a chance for a younger players to step up, we’ll give them the opportunity and they’ve got to take it with both hands – if they do that’s great and if not we will go to plan B.”

Bouncing back from a loss in the wet last week is important for South Mildura.

“We were pretty disappointed in the way we played last week,” Thompson said.

‘We didn’t adapt to the conditions or the umpiring, there was nothing wrong with it but we didn’t adapt to how the game was being played and the conditions it was played in.

“It was disappointing losing but we can’t blame anything other than poor play, bad decision making and things like that.”

Against a side much lower on the ladder South Mildura will be favourites, but still wary.

“We have a lot of respect for Robinvale Euston, their defenders are really tough,” Thompson said.

“They have got a great reach on them and they are unpredictable on how many balls they can get, they are quick.”
