It was business as usual in Round 15 of the Vitality Netball SuperLeague for our top four teams, with Team Bath, Manchester Thunder, Loughborough Lightning and Wasps all putting another three points on the board and increasing the distance between them and their competitors.

Round two is done and dusted in the 2021 ANZ Premiership and we have just one undefeated team left standing. The Stars have started the season with two strong wins and sit alone on top of the ladder. Likewise, there is only one team yet to taste victory and that’s a surprise.

COMPETITION PREVIEW By Bethany Slaughter This weekend, the ANZ Premiership will have its first centre pass for 2021. And, after a whirlwind off-season, the ball is in anybody’s court. On paper, there are reasons why every team can rise up the table, beat any opposition on their best day, and hold the trophy aloft at
