Benched: Aimee Arundell will have to coach from the sidelines as she recovers from illness.

Arundell had her tonsils out 10 days ago and left the coaching duties to former leader Pam Davis last weekend.

The first-year coach said she wanted to lead the Bloods in their must-win game against fellow winless side Warrnambool at Terang Recreation Reserve today.

Arundell won’t play and will direct tactics from off the court.

“I had them (tonsils) out last Wednesday and they said to have two weeks off sport, so hopefully I will be right next week,” she said. “It’s wait and see.

“I feel out of it not being there the past few weeks and I am just hoping to get the win.”

Terang Mortlake goal shooter Jo Couch has recovered from a knee injury just in time to replace fellow sharpshooter Julia Moloney.

Moloney injured her ankle in the Bloods’ round three loss to Port Fairy.

“Having Jo back in will be a huge plus and Jacqui Arundell from under 17s and Codi Holmes from A1, no doubt they will go well,” Arundell said.

“Codi played last week for a half in goal keeper and did all right by all reports and so did Jacqui.”

Arundell said Couch would complement Sharni Moloney in goals.

In other round four games, finals aspirants Camperdown and Koroit clash, undefeated North Warrnambool Eagles meet winless Cobden, South Warrnambool and Portland will both be on the rebound in their match and Hamilton Kangaroos and Port Fairy meet tomorrow.
