The Port Lincoln team challenging Broken Hill's combined female representative team have had less than two months to prepare for this weekend's big game.

The Eyre Peninsula Calypso Star Sharks have had just six weeks to train together as a team - and most of the girls haven't played a game of football.

Their coach, Brett Channon, said only one member of the team has played a game of football before getting together.

Despite a build up hampered by injuries and unavailable players, Broken Hill’s coaches and players firmly believe that they can win today’s Miners Cup match against the Far North Football League at AAMI Stadium.

The confidence exists even though as many as 18 first choice players are missing from the side and that 11 members of the team were not part of last year’s  Miners Cup-winning team.

Last year Broken Hill dished out a footballing lesson to their SA opposition, recording a 54 point, 20.14 (134) to 12.8 (80), victory. 

Yesterday the players and their support entourage left Broken Hill on the team bus early in the morning.
