Improved Cannons to offer challenge

Greater Western Victoria Rebels could make up to four changes ahead of its winnable game against Calder Cannons on Sunday.

Rebels sits 11th, two games behind Calder, with two rounds remaining in the TAC Cup competition and will be looking to respond after a disappointing loss last week to the Stingrays.

Coach Gerard FitzGerald said the group had focused on retaining the ball inside 50 even if it does not mark it. After winning plenty of supply last week, it allowed the ball to be rebounded to easily. While he expected a strong Calder Cannons side, given all of the Melbourne-based clubs have their full list at this stage of the season with the conclusion of the school football competition.
