THE self-belief is flowing at Davidson Oval.

Old Collegians, fresh off a thrilling two-goal triumph over Allansford, are riding a wave of strong form and are lodged comfortably in fifth place.

However, they face a challenge in the form of Kolora-Noorat on Saturday.

First-year coach Meagan Forth said while the group was young, it understood it had limitless potential.

“I think one of our strong points is that we do believe in each other,” she said.

“We’re quite composed. We play a different style in that we try to be settled and composed.

“We’re a new, young team and we just have to keep settling into that style we want to play. We’re not taking anything for granted because we know how tight the competition is.”

Forth said the interleague bye had allowed extra tactical practice and was welcomed among her charges.

“I think we had a bye, then a game, then a bye again,” she said.

“It’s been beneficial to get that practice in. We’re training really, really hard and I think the girls are raring to go against Kolora-Noorat.

“I think it will be a tight contest but I think we can definitely match them on the court.”
