During the past week, we clicked past the halfway mark in Suncorp Super Netball. Eight rounds were played in the month of August. Round 7 was a replay of the fixtures from round 4 and it led to some interesting results. In round 4, Lightning beat Swifts by 7 and Thunderbirds beat Vixens by 7. Ten days later in round 7, both results were exactly reversed. This time, Swifts beat Lightning by 7 and Vixens beat Thunderbirds by 7. These wins put Vixens and Swifts at the top of the ladder. Also in round 7, Giants had another great battle with Firebirds. In round 4, they couldn’t be separated, playing out a 61-61 draw. This time, it was so close to another draw, with Caitlin Bassett scoring right on full time to see Giants get up 66-65.
