Round Two Preview

1 year ago

Here's all the info you need ahead of Sunday's round two clash against the Lightning.

With the quarantine period over, Collingwood have relocated north to the Sunshine Coast ahead of Sunday’s round two clash against the Lightning.

The Magpies put on a strong performance in round one against the Vixens but they were unable to hold on in the final term, going down 52 - 63.

But fans were still thrilled to see the return of the Browne sisters as well as the debuts of several Magpies including Molly Jovic, Emma Ryde, Nyah Allen and Jodi-Ann Ward.

The Lightning will arrive on Sunday with one win already on the board after last weekend’s 18-point victory over the Queensland Firebirds.

It’s likely to be a tough battle between Madi Browne and Laura Langman with both players providing 12 goal assists and having been named match MVPs in their round one games.

Scoring 10 super shots in round one, Steph Wood will also be on close watch by the Magpie defenders.

But for Magpie fans, all eyes will be on goaler Shimona Nelson who is likely to return for her first game of 2020 on Sunday.
