Today's game is proudly brought to you by the TAC. Together, the Magpies and the TAC are working to achieve a future free of deaths and serious injuries on the road. We believe there's no-one someone won't miss and that we all play a role in road safety. By working together and making the right choices, we know that a road toll of zero is possible.

You can catch the TAC team outside the game this weekend. They'll be activating at Margaret Court Arena, so get involved and guess the number of balls in the car to win a trip (flights and accommodation) to the Sunshine Coast to watch the girls play away!
