Collingwood captain Geva Mentor will be sidelined for Collingwood’s Round 2 Suncorp Super Netball match against the Giants on Saturday afternoon.

Mentor is managing ongoing lower back soreness and was ruled out of Saturday’s side following a final fitness test today.

Mentor has never missed a Super Netball game.

Fiona Themann will replace Mentor in the goal-keeper position. Themann plays with Melbourne University in the Victorian Netball League and formerly played Super Netball with the Adelaide Thunderbirds in 2017/18.

The 31-year-old has represented Scotland at an international netball level. Themann was rewarded selection in the 2014 and 2018 Commonwealth Games and at the 2015 Netball World Cup.

Mentor is expected to return to the side next week.
