Opportunities more so than setbacks is how Greater Northern Raiders co-coach Darren Simmonds views the four compulsory changes to the successful lineup.
Amid their maiden Cricket Tasmania Premier League season, the Raiders have no hesitation in handing out two further debuts to add to the other 15 rookies this season.
Latrobe batter Kate Chaplin and Wynyard bowling allrounder Hayley Marshall will join campaigners Montana Bradley and Dana Lester for Sunday's trip to Lindisfarne.
The Raiders will lose Amy Duggan and Sasha Lowry to a state under-18 commitment, while hat-trick hero Sophie Parkin and Rhianne Hack are unavailable from the team's last T20 match in December.
The raft of changes are of little concern to the Raiders who seemingly always lift.
The newcomers have won on seven occasions and lost once in its T20 campaign to sit atop of the female ladder.
"Anytime when you have players unavailable with commitments, it gives others an opportunity," Simmonds said.
"Kate was quite impressive in our intra-club at UTAS, making 50 not out in that innings.
"That game we wanted to see players take the opportunity and she did.

"We were really impressed how she went in that game.
"The same goes with Hayley, who is getting back to full fitness and she's getting an opportunity in the side too."
The Raiders made history on debut to record a 21-run home win over Lindisfarne.
But Simmonds remains wary of the fourth-placed side that include stars Paris Crowe and Veronica Pyke.
"When you have quality players like that, they are going to present challenges," he said.
"It's also another bus trip down to Hobart and we pride ourselves on how we go when we travel away."
The visitors have yet to drop a game on the road and their continuity has helped rather than hindered playing the T20s as double-headers to save on four consecutive weeks of travelling to Hobart.
But the idea of playing half as much of cricket in a day to freshen up both the minds and the bodies of the players would not make a difference, according to Simmonds.
"To be honest whether it's one or two games, I expect us to have the same preparation regardless of that," he said.
