VICTORIA'S coronavirus-enforced sporting shutdown has forced the Hampden league's ladder leader to reshuffle its plans.
Cobden was planning to experiment with versatility as it wound up for premiership bid but the most recent COVID-19 break - which was the result of the state's fifth lockdown - has limited that possibility.
Bombers coach Sophie Hinkley, who led her side to a 20-goal triumph over Camperdown on Saturday, said Cobden wouldn't have the time to fully test its versatility with just three games remaining before finals.
The Bombers had a 19-goal first term, a feat which set up the 59 to 39-goal success.
The challenge for us is going to be if we aren't leading, bringing ourselves back into it.Sophie Hinkley
"It changes our plans a little bit. We were intending to have a little more rotation and have a look at some options as we're in such a privileged position with our versatility," she said.
"The games we have left now before finals isn't as much game time to do that. We haven't had our full side really until these four rounds.
"We've essentially only had five games where we've had our full team. Now it'll just be consolidating some things and bringing in some new things we're able to work with now we have the full team."
Hinkley said the Camperdown match followed a similar narrative to several other Cobden fixtures.
She was pleased her side was able to withstand the Magpies' momentum through the middle of the match before pushing out the margin in the final term.
"The challenge for us is going to be if we aren't leading, bringing ourselves back into it. "We're playing Koroit next week and the last time we played them, it was really even across the board.
"(Saturday) will be a good opportunity, if it's a similar game to last time, to overcome that pressure."
