THE 2017 Riverland Independent
Netball Association season gets
under way tonight.
Everyone will be chasing
Brown’s Well, which dominated
2016, winning both the A grade
and B grade premierships.
With two or three Riverland
A1/A2 quality players, Brown’s
Well will be hard to beat again in
2017, aiming for a hat-trick of A
A revitalised Lyrup team will
be aiming to go one better in this
year’s competition, after falling
seven goals short in the 2016
Blanchetown Swan Reach
rounded out last year’s finalists
and will both be eyeing off big
improvements to knock off the
gold and brown machine in 2017.
While player numbers are an
ongoing issue in the Riverland
Independent Netball Association
competition, hopefully last year’s
strugglers can be competitive and
improve in 2017.
Paringa has a raft of new faces
in its A grade side this year, so
the team will be hoping to get a
few wins on the board in 2017
and avoid the wooden spoon.
Paringa and Sedan-Cambrai
will launch the season tonight in
Renmark, while Blanchetown-
Swan Reach will come up against
Wunkar and Brown’s Well takes
on Ramco tomorrow.

The reigning premiers
will take on Ramco in

their campaign to go

Bombers coach Ashley
Smith said while getting
a solid pre-season into his
players has been tough,
everyone is raring to go
for round one.
“We have had a bit of
a slow start with blokes
doing harvest, but things
are slowly coming togeth-
er,” he said.
“We are looking for-
ward to getting back into

“I think there is always
that little bit more pres-

everyone wants to knock
off from last year,” he
According to Smith,
there will be a number of
new faces in the Bombers
team this season.
“We have lost four or
five blokes through retire-
ment and a couple of oth-
ers having a go at RFL
football, but we have also
gained another four or five
as well,” he said.
Smith believes the race
for the 2017 premiership
is wide open.
“I think this year is
going to be a lot closer

Mr Mitchell said even though
the club has found enough num-
bers for round one, it is still on
the lookout for players.
“Hopefully we can get a few
more players because you never
know what can happen with inju-
ries and some players might drop
off,” he said.
Although the Eagles have
managed to find numbers for a
senior team, Mr Mitchell said the
club is still lacking junior num-
“We haven’t got a colts side at
the moment,” he said.
“We want to get the word out
there because every kid would be
guaranteed a game every week.”
Mr Mitchell said he would rec-
ommend the club to anyone con-
sidering getting involved.
“It is a great family club, espe-
cially with the netball following
the football,” he said.
“We have a great atmosphere
around the club.
“We haven’t won a game for a
few years but there is still a great
feeling around the place.”
