CUDGEWA coach Kiale Crowther believes the Blues have huge upside after a disappointing first half of the season.
With the club sitting outside the top four with a 3-4 win-loss ratio, Crowther is confident player availability will help turn the team’s fortunes around.
Cudgewa face a huge test against Border-Walwa on Saturday with both sides jostling for spots in the first semi-final.
“We should get nine back this week,” Crowther said.
“Injuries and unavailability have been hurting us and we have huge improvement left in us.
“It will be pretty tough against Border-Walwa though.
“Hopefully we can play better against them than we did last time.”
Jackson Browne has returned to Cudgewa from the Central Murray League while Adam Bloom is another inclusion.
Corryong will meet Tumbarumba and Bullioh host Federal.
