MORE match-style training is on the agenda as Port Fairy works to gel several new combinations on the run.
The new-look Seagulls showed nerves of steel to see off a plucky Hamilton Kangaroos by four goals on Saturday.
Port Fairy coach Renae Taylor expected her side - which featured a number of young players - to grow as it spent more time under match duress.
"I think some team cohesion and getting used to each other (will improve us)," she said.
"It's a little bit difficult until you start playing to identify where those weaknesses are, so we just need to keep building.
"We've got a pretty new side so we're trying to ease into some combinations. The girls kept level heads and that was really pleasing."
The match featured a number of big momentum swings, with both sides edging in front in each term.
The Seagulls, however, were able to halt a Hamilton Kangaroos' five-goal turnaround to run out 40 to 36 winners in wet and slippery conditions.
Taylor said her side's adaptability was among the most pleasing factors of the triumph.
I think (Tess Allen) was fantastic, for someone who is still quite young and missed quite a bit of netball over the past few years.Renae Taylor
"We made different rotations and the girls could adjust straight away," she said.
"I think Tess Allen, she's working her way into her first season of open netball. I think she was fantastic, for someone who is still quite young and missed quite a bit of netball over the past few years.
"I just thought she was really impressive. She was able to adapt to the game style we're trying to play straight away."
Taylor also reserved praise for leaders Ally Feely and Bernadette Meade.
Port Fairy will play up-and-comer Portland at home next Saturday.
