Magpies head north to Sunshine Coast to take on the Lightning in Indigenous round this weekend.
We’re half way through the season and head north to sunny Sunshine Coast to take on the Lightning in round eight. This weekend is also Indigenous round of Suncorp Super Netball and the players will be wearing dresses which match the AFL Indigenous Guernsey design, by Travis Varcoe’s sister in law.
Coming off an impressive derby win over the Vixens Monday, the team have had a quick turnaround before flying up north on Friday, before playing Saturday afternoon, live on Channel 9.
Our superstar foundation player, Kim Ravallion will play her 100th national league game this weekend, which the team and coaching staff are extremely excited about.
Last time we met in round one, we held strong and finished with a 14 goal win over the reigning premiers on our home turf. However, since then the Lightning have only lost one game in round six against the Vixens, and as a result currently sit second on the ladder.
As we currently sit two points behind the top four, this weekend’s game is crucial for the team to come out on top of to keep their finals campaign alive. Every quarter and thus bonus point is crucial to put away and the team are motivated to get the job done.
