West Coast Fever welcomed Queensland Firebirds for back-to-back Super Netball pre-season matches.

While Saturday’s hitout between West Coast Fever and Queensland Firebirds was a valuable pre-season exercise, the 1000 strong crowd was enthralled by a couple of subplots. At a national level, Australia hasn’t played Jamaica since the 2015 World Cup, and in this game the Diamonds’ two goal keepers and the Sunshine Girls’ two goal shooters took to the court. The spotlight was also on Laura Geitz in her first public game since returning from maternity leave; her last match was coincidentally also in Perth during the 2015 Constellation Cup.
