THE Bendigo Thunder are a chance to produce their most competitive performance of the VWFL premier division season so far on Sunday when they host the Eastern Devils at Dower Park.
Like the Thunder, the Devils are also winless this season, although, they fell one point short of top-four side St Albans last round.
While the Thunder continue to struggle, with their four defeats by an average of 203 points in their debut premier division year, there was a positive last round when Ingrid Hopkins kicked their first goal of the season.
“We played the Devils in a practice match during the pre-season and they were far too good for us that day,” Thunder coach Russell Jeffrey said on Thursday.
“So even though they haven’t won a game either, we’ll be treating them as very tough opposition like every week.
“But we’re really confident we can give a much better account of ourselves this time against them. Our team is starting to get stronger each week.”
