Magpies locked in for preseason battle with Firebirds

3 months ago

After an extended break, the Magpies are set to take the court in February for two preseason clashes.

With the 2022 Suncorp Super Netball season looming, the time for preseason matches has arrived with two huge battles against the Queensland Firebirds set for February.

The first match will be played on Thursday, February 10 followed up by a Friday night battle on February 11, with both games starting at 6pm. Both matches will play at Mackay Basketball Stadium in Queensland, with the event expected to draw a passionate crowd.

The back-to-back February practice matches will allow the Magpies to test out connections as the Suncorp Super Netball season draws near, with no one more excited for the preseason hit-outs than head coach, Nicole “Richo” Richardson.

“We're really looking forward to gauging where we're at during preseason and getting some learnings out of the weekend," Richo said.

"Testing lineups and gauging what works best on court, and also exposing Sophie (Garbin) and Maggie (Lind) to the match-day environment with the team is really important.

"We can head back with plenty to work on for the remaining eight weeks until the seasons starts."
