NSL Player Focus: Shaquanda Greene-Noel (Celtic Dragons)

IT had been a long time coming, but finally the Celtic Dragons picked up their second win of the 2023 Netball Super League season last weekend with a convincing win over the Strathclyde Sirens.

NSL Player Focus: Vicki Oyesola (Leeds Rhinos)

ONE of the absolute standouts of this year’s Netball Super League (NSL) season has been Leeds Rhinos defender Vicki Oyesola. Not one of the biggest names in the competition, Oyesola has been putting out consistently strong performances that will hopefully have her on the radar of the Roses pathway system sooner rather than later. Perhaps […]

NSL Player Focus: Rachel Dunn (Celtic Dragons)

IT was a bumper weekend for most teams in the Netball Super League over the weekend, with most of the competition having to front up for multiple matches across the weekend. One of those sides was the Celtic Dragons, who had less than 24 hours between their match in London against the Pulse and their […]

NSL Player Focus: Caroline O’Hanlon (Leeds)

DESPITE going down to Loughborough on the weekend, the Leeds Rhinos made a good fight of the match, and were looking like winning for three quarters of the match.
