2022 VNSL club preview: Saracens Mavericks

GAINING a red-hot international shooter in the wake of a reliable veteran retiring, and the Saracens Mavericks again look like a team to watch in 2022. The Mavericks just missed out on the Vitality Netball Superleague (VNSL) finals series last year, but with minimal changes and an exciting, developing team, there is every chance they make the leap into the top four this season.

LAST SEASON: 6th (11-8-1)


Saracens Mavericks only finished two points outside the top four, with a draw to Strathclyde Sirens seeing them fall short of being equal fourth with Leeds Rhinos. Still, an 11-8-1 record has them within striking distance of a finals series, and 2022 could be their year if the Mavericks can crack into the top four.
