Here's how we line up against @SurreyStorm this evening…
A change in the defensive end as Annika Lee-Jones starts at GK and Christina Shaw comes on at WD, with an all-Welsh subs bench.
First centre pass @ 5.15pm 👇

1/4 time: Storm 15-11
An Amy Clinton goal after time was up, gets them within 4. They’ve actually been competitive with Storm for the most part. It’s just silly basic errors that are costing them (like breaking at the centre pass). Bailey is on top for Storm.Ian HarkinModeratorFebruary 23, 2021 at 3:51 amPost count: 7344
1/2 time: Storm 27-22
Incredible really that Dragons are within striking distance. You get the feeling that Storm are going to run away with things, but Dragons are sticking in there. Amy Clinton a shining light for them. Parsons picked up a falcon in that Q!Ian HarkinModeratorFebruary 23, 2021 at 3:55 amPost count: 7344
Christina Shaw at WD for Dragons picked up a brilliant intercept that started the mini-comeback towards the end of the Q. It’s things like that Dragons are going to need if they’re to challenge Storm who are still looking the more composed team.Ian HarkinModeratorFebruary 23, 2021 at 4:11 amPost count: 7344
I fear this is where it all falls apart for Dragons. Storm just too strong. Karyn Bailey putting on a show out there, passing to herself off the post. unfortunately, Annika Lee-Jones is not putting her under any great pressure at all.

3/4 time: Storm 42-34
Storm just edging further away with each quarter. It’s a good team effort from them. Mikki Austin brought herself on again at half time, just as she did yesterday. Will Dragons stick with them in the last Q or will Storm run away with it?Ian HarkinModeratorFebruary 23, 2021 at 4:38 amPost count: 7344
Full time: Storm 56-40
In the end, a comprehensive win for Storm, winning each Q. Storm had good players all over the court, but in particular, Dragons had no answer at all to Bailey, who pretty much did as she liked. Her opposite Amy Clinton was Dragons’ bestIan HarkinModeratorFebruary 23, 2021 at 5:53 amPost count: 7344
Wasps v Bath
1/2 time: Bath 25-15
A dominant display from Bath. Far more cohesive. They haven’t always found it easy to score themselves, but at times Wasps have found it near impossible. Bath defence through court is putting so much pressure on and creating so many turnovers.
