GREATER Western Victoria Rebels will use their NAB League bye to regroup after a goalless performance against Eastern Ranges.
The Rebels managed just five behinds in their 111-point defeat at Mars Stadium on Sunday.
Talent manager Phil Partington said it was "very rare" for a state league under 18 side to finish a match without a major.
"I can't remember it happening in the Rebels' program to be honest," he said.
"We had many opportunities but didn't get them through the tall sticks.
"The players and the program have got pride. But we don't look at the ladder, results of other teams' players.
"It's disappointing but we move on; it's not a result we'll dwell on much."
The Rebels' next two matches - against Western Jets on June 22 and Dandenong Stingrays on June 29 - fall in the 'futures games' section of the draw.
Clubs play 13 top-age players and a minimum 11 bottom-age players during the initiative.
Partington said it was introduced in recent seasons due to the AFL's decision to implement trading future draft picks.
