Well, what a big nine days it's been since the last edition of the NS Scoreboard. Excitement and controversies galore in Super Netball, and yesterday, we saw the culmination of the ANZ Premiership season for 2020. A season that was anything but straightforward, ended with a straightforward result, as Central Pulse took out their second ANZ
In the past week, we've seen two full rounds of Suncorp Super Netball played. We will have to get used to this condensed nature of the competition as the same thing is happening in the coming week. Round two last weekend began with an upset win by Thunderbirds over Giants and featured the emergence of
Last weekend, we saw the opening round of Suncorp Super Netball played in Brisbane, but it only got off the ground thanks to a lot of scrambling behind the scenes, resulting in some last minute changes to rules, schedules and travel plans. The big talking point was the new 2 goal super shot, in play
Here we are. Finally. The delayed and much altered 2020 version of Suncorp Super Netball is about to start. We can only hope there are no more Covid-19 related problems and that we get to see the competition play out and reach its ultimate conclusion in a grand final played at Nissan Arena in Brisbane.
Last weekend, we saw round 7 of the ANZ Premiership, the last round based solely out of the Auckland Netball Centre.

Last weekend, we saw round 6 of the ANZ Premiership, and it was another great round of netball. In the first game of the round, Mystics came out on top in a topsy-turvy battle of Auckland. Mystics led 15-11 at 1/4 time, before Stars fought back and won the next two quarters to lead at
Last weekend, we saw round 5 of the ANZ Premiership, and it was clearly the closest round so far. We saw the second draw of the competition, and three other games were decided by a combined total of six goals. In the first game of the round, Pulse did just enough to defeat Steel 40-37.
Last weekend, we saw round 4 of the ANZ Premiership, and it produced the first draw in the competition's short history. In the first game of the round, Mystics consolidated their place in the top 2 with a good 5 goal win over Tactix. Tactix got out of the blocks quickly and led at 1/4
Last weekend, we saw round 3 of the ANZ Premiership. The match everyone was looking forward to was the last game of the round between the defending champions, Pulse, and the young Mystics side which has shown early promise this year. And the game didn't disappoint. For the first three quarters, there was barely a
So anyway, where were we before we were so rudely interrupted... Last weekend, we saw the return of the ANZ Premiership. Matches were only of 48 minutes duration and all played in one venue, the Auckland Netball Centre. But wasn't it great to just have some actual netball back. And the favourites, Pulse really stamped their
