ROUND THREE
GIANTS Netball v West Coast Fever

  • The GIANTS remain win-less to start the season and will be hungry to get their first victory on the board for Caitlin Bassett‘s 200th national league game.
  • The Fever will go into this clash full of confidence after going down to reigning premiers by only one without their captain Courtney Bruce who is out with a back injury.
  • The Fever goal circle is looking very settled with back-to-back league MVP Jhaniele Fowler being well-supported by Alice Teague-Neeld who has found great confidence this season.

Queensland Firebirds v Collingwood Magpies

  • It’s a bottom of the ladder clash with both the Firebirds and Magpies win-less after Round 2.
  • Both teams’ new line-ups and combinations are showing great signs but it will be a battle of who can remain consistent for the full 60 minutes.
  • The return of Shimona Nelson to the Magpies line-up proved to be an important key for their success and goal attack sneak Nyah Allen has put her name on the radar to be a headache for the Firebirds. 

NSW Swifts v Adelaide Thunderbirds

  • A third quarter not to be forgotten by the NSW Swifts in Round 2 will have them full of confidence after their thrilling win. The Swifts broke the single quarter scoring record with 27 to make an incredible comeback against the Fever.
  • The Thunderbirds will have full belief in themselves to knock off the reigning premiers and make it two in a row, coming off the team’s first ever win against the GIANTS.
  • Can the Thunderbirds hold strong to withstand a steamrolling Swifts team? 

Melbourne Vixens v Sunshine Coast Lightning

  • A huge top of the table clash between two of the most consistent teams across the league, the Vixens are sitting on top with the Lightning just below in second.
  • The Vixens are coming off a dominate performance and will be looking to stamp their authority against the force that is Lightning .
  • Vixens co-captain Kate Moloney will player her 100th national league match and Lightning captain Laura Langman is coming off a Round 2 Nissan Player of the Match performance, so it’s bound to be a battle of the midcourt captains.
