TERANG Mortlake coach Lisa Arundell says her side relishes any chance it can get to test itself against quality opposition.
This weekend will be no different when the sixth-placed Bloods face two-time reigning premier Koroit, a team they have only beaten twice in 10 encounters, on its home court.
The match comes a week after Arundell's side pushed ladder-leaders Cobden until the final whistle in a eight-goal defeat.
But the second-year Bloods mentor said the feeling around the group for the Saints match was similar to what it was for any other team in the competition.
"They are relishing every opportunity this season and we were looking forward to Cobden last week and it will be the same this week regardless of them being the most successful team in recent history," she said.
"They will be eager for the challenge of trying to take it to a top team."
Arundell confirmed she would enter the game with her full squad available for only the second time this season meaning she could perfect the side's match ups.
"It will be interesting to look at match ups and I haven't thought about who will go where yet," she said.
"I will sit down during the week and look at the match ups and work out what's best for us."
"Our game plans and what we are working on show it's coming together and producing results," she said. "Koroit will be different to Cobden but I was happy with how we stood up to their defensive pressure and also how our attacking end performed.
"Having said that they (Koroit) are a different team with different pressure points. Obviously their attacking ring is strong with Nell (Mitchell) in there and like any other team we will try to cut off that feed they have into her.
"Defensively they have strong players in Emily (Batt), Kasey (Owen) and Zahli (Adams) and then you come up against an experienced mid-court as well.
"So there is plenty to consider but in the same respect you have to go out and play your own game."
