LOUGHBOROUGH Lightning continued their stellar start to their Netball Super League title defence with another big win on the weekend, this time downing Team Bath by 37 goals in the final match of the weekend. A big part in the Lightning’s success, as she is just about every week, was Lightning midcourter Hannah Joseph. Playing […]

NSL Player Focus: Jasmine Brown (Stars)

LAST weekend saw the Netball Super League return with a bang, with all 10 teams gathering in Nottingham for the season opener. One of the sides to score a big win on the opening day was the Severn Stars, who defeated the Leeds Rhinos. A major figure in that opening day success was defender Jasmine […]

Nations Cup Player Focus: Georgia Heffernan (NZ)

AFTER a first up loss, New Zealand got its Nations Cup campaign back on track on matcday two with a five-goal win over Uganda. A big part of that success was goal attack Georgia Heffernan. Originally just a training partner for this series, Heffernan subsequently got promoted to the actual squad and has become the […]

SSN Player Focus: Latanya Wilson (Adelaide Thunderbirds)

AS the Adelaide Thunderbirds booked a finals double chance on the weekend with a win over the NSW Swifts, a huge part in that success was Latanya Wilson. Although she is not talked about as much as some of her teammates, she played a huge part in Adelaide’s success on Saturday, finishing with 14 deflections, […]

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. A big factor in that win was the efforts of Shaquanda Greene-Noel, with the Trinidad and Tobago skipper continuing her excellent […]

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: Mikki Austin (Surrey Storm)

IT was a big weekend for the Surrey Storm, who had to battle both the Saracens Mavericks and Leeds Rhinos in the space of a weekend. In the first of their two matches over the round, they returned to their winning ways by beating the Mavericks, and a critical part of that victory was Mikki […]

NSL Player Focus: Fran Williams (Loughborough Lightning)

AFTER a week off, the Loughborough Lightning returned to the Netball Super League (NSL) action over the weekend looking as fresh as a daisy and comfortably disposing of the Celtic Dragons. One huge key cog in that Lightning victory was defender Fran Williams, who had a particularly impressive performance. She finished with a whopping eight […]

NSL Player Focus: Jayda Pechova (Team Bath)

DESPITE Team Bath going down to the Severn Stars by 10 goals on the weekend, many players on the losing side put in stellar shifts. One such player was Jayda Pechova. In only her first year at Bath after crossing from the Pulse, she has slotted in seamlessly and made a real impact for her […]

NSL Player Focus: Natalie Metcalf (Manchester Thunder)

MANCHESTER Thunder fought off a tough challenge from the Strathclyde Sirens to take the win on the weekend, and a key part of that success was their skipper Natalie Metcalf.
