After flying high for most of last year, West Coast Fever’s 2018 season finished on a disappointing note. After leading by seven goals at one point in the grand final, they were run over by the Sunshine Coast Lightning in the last quarter. Shortly afterwards they cut star goal attack Nat Medhurst in controversial circumstances. Medhurst was a crucial link in attack, and in preseason games Fever have shown they’re still adapting to her absence. Nevertheless, they remain a powerful unit who once again will have their eyes firmly fixed on the top of the ladder.
