Bathurst Bushrangers task to conquer the Blues in Cowra has gotten a little harder, with the Bathurst-based women's side to take an understrength side west on Saturday.
Bushrangers coach Brian Matheson confirmed that only 13 of his 27-woman squad will play the match against Cowra in round six action of Central West AFL.
He said it should make for an interesting game.
"It looks like Cowra's numbers have picked up from earlier in the season," he said.
"We've had a really bad run with injuries and unavailability. I think we've got 27 players all up and this weekend we've only got 13 players. So we've got more out than we've got in.
"It'll be a good challenge for the girls going over there, against a team who's got more players than them but I'm really looking forward to it."
Bushrangers currently occupy third position in the ladder, with three wins from six, as well as one draw to Bathurst Giants last round.

Cowra sit in last place with just the one win.
Matheson explained that because his side has 13 players, Cowra could also play 13, to make the line-up even.
He also said teams can lend players to their opposition, in order that footballers can get a run and not sit on the bench for the majority of the game.
Matheson said he hopes his team can make a good account for the themselves.
"It should be a good game of football, especially going in not knowing if you're going to win or lose," he said.
The entire Central West AFL competition is coming off a general bye for the June long weekend.
The women's competition played two matches in the previous round, with Bushrangers drawing with Giants and claiming four points after Pakes forfeited.
The game starts at 12.30pm at Mulyan Oval.
