Collingwood will participate in a series of practice matches leading into the 2020 Suncorp Super Netball Season.
The Magpies most recently took on the Sunshine Coast Lightning going down by four goals in game one, but rebounding to claim the win 62-58 in game two.
The Magpies will now prepare to head to the LaTrobe Valley where they’ll face the Victorian Men’s Netball side in the coming weeks.
They will then travel to Sydney for the official pre-season tournament, the Team Girls Cup. The Magpies will be keen to uphold their title having taken out the tournament last year. Over the three-day tournament, the Pies are set to face the GWS Giants, NSW Swifts and the Queensland Firebirds.
They’ll also meet their cross-town rivals, the Melbourne Vixens in Ballarat in April.
Lastly, the Pies will also host the Bendigo Bash where they’ll again face the Sunshine Coast Lightning and GWS Giants.
