Thunder WAFLW set to rebound

Peel Thunder face East Fremantle this weekend as the WAFLW returns after the forced week off.

The Thunder missed last week's clash against Claremont that would have been a real yardstick to where the competition is placed.

Coach Steve Markham said the break wouldn't do his side much harm.

"Hopefully it freshens the squad up we've had a few niggles over the last few weeks."

Markham admitted the build up to this week was a different challenge.

"It will be a bit different as we haven't trained since last Thursday so we will get the squad together and we expect a quality game."

"East Fremantle are a quality side, we played them up there recently and had a good victory."

The games will take on a different look with AFLW players set to return to the competition.

Markham is confident that Peel are in a strong position to push deep into the season.

"We're getting stronger and stronger and with the AFLW girls coming back in it changes the competition a bit but to be six and two at this point in the season it's exciting."
