CAVALIERS will welcome the return of playing coach Dannie Carstens for its Aurora League round 3 match against Karana Flames in Hobart this weekend.
Carstens will make her season debut following an Achilles rupture, which saw her sidelined late in 2012.
"I am looking for the team to continue focusing on executing the basics and making the most of opportunities though valuing the ball when bringing it down court and changing the pace in the attack end," Carstens said.
"There will be some interesting match-ups with young 16-year-old TIS scholarship holder and nationally- identified player Kelsie Rainbow possibly matching up against the experienced Kayla Veitch in the centre court as well as experienced campaigner Cath Van Keulen going head-to-head with long-time Karana defender Eliza Baker."
NORTHERN Hawks will be hunting for a second win against Kingston Blues with coach Kellie Woolnough aware it will be a big game with the Blues, deemed the big improvers this season.
Shooters Danni Pickett and ex- Kingston player Chelsea Coleman will have their work cut out for them when they match-up on defenders Jen Hanlon and Jade Glover.
The Hawks will look to captain Steffi Grenda to rally the team to create pressure in defence.
"We have been working on our transition and linking the attack and defence ends through the mid-court," Woolnough said.
Devon and Burnie will play in the annual Coastal derby with both teams chasing their first win of the season.
Devon coach Jo-Anne Aherne said both sides have had considerable changes to their open squads from last year and Devon recruit Breanna Wade will be looking for a strong performance against her former club.
Waratah and Arrows will clash in a grand final replay from last season.
