Deni Rovers netballers received some hot tips from Melbourne Vixens netballer Caitlyn Strachan at their Thursday night training last week.
The star netballer, who plays in the wings and centre positions for the Vixens, was in Deniliquin to put the Rovers through their paces ahead of weekend’s matches against Mathoura.
Rovers netball coordinator Tenille Blake said the sessions were a great opportunity for the players to gain valuable skills.
‘‘Caitlyn helped the girls with drills and taught them set plays,’’ Blake said.
‘‘She showed them some of the ball skills that Vixens use at training too.
‘‘It’s good to get some tips from a professional and hopefully it will give the teams some new ideas.’’
The Rovers netballers then travelled to Melbourne on Sunday to watch the Melbourne Vixens take on the NSW Swifts at Hisense Arena.
Unfortunately for Strachan and her Vixens, the Melbourne side was beaten 54-50 by its regular home-court nemesis.
