Lift in intensity needed

MCDONALDS Gladstone Port City Power women's coach Ray Cooper said a lift in urgency and one-percenters will get the job done for his charges against Toowoomba.

After starting the season with a shock win against last season's premiers Rockhampton Cyclones a fortnight ago, Cooper's girls suffered a double dose of losses to Gold Coast and South West Metro last weekend. "Our effort plays and urgency at times let us down and that's something that they'll learn from," Cooper said.

Toowoomba's only win was against South West Metro and has Estala Royo Torres a standout who is shot 63 points in two games.

But Cooper is confident his team will bounce back.

"The pleasing thing is that our girls have stuck together and we are not far from our best," Cooper said. "It's a matter of getting it done quickly." He added that import Markel Walker and captain Maddy Willey have been standouts
