    Halftime:
    Manchester Thunder 36 Celtic Dragons 18

    Thunder looking sharper but so were Dragons and they were able to match them goal for goal until the end of the first quarter, the gap was only 3 goals. Thunder made a few changes and the gap grew and grew throughout Q2. Dragons were unable to stop the feed into Joyce.

    3/4 time: Thunder 52-27

    16-9 to Thunder in that Q. Hopefully the Dragons can fight this one out and show something in the last Q

    FULLTIME:
    Manchester Thunder 69 Celtic Dragons 33

    Only 5 goals for Dragon in the last quarter. The coach Hoffman knew it was going to be tough but overall she wasn’t happy. They are working hard and wants to see what they put out in training reproduced on the main stage.

    MVP Joyce Mvula

    Full time: Thunder 69-33

    Thunder’s biggest win so far. Not sure it really proves anything except playing a WA in WA is probably a good move. For Dragons, it must be so disheartening at this stage. The first Q was encouraging but it was downhill from there.

    Hoffman agreed that she didn’t make many changes because she’s almost settled with her main 7. ALJ didn’t get any court time, I wonder what that means for her. :unsure:

    Interesting, Thunder started the game with Cardwell/Malcolm/O’Hanlan at GA/WA/C and that was their poorest quarter. So poor that Griegy changed it after Q1, opting not to wait to see it it improved. She said she wanted to strengthen the defence so she moved Malcolm from WA to WD, I’m not convinced

    QTR 1

    10-9 Mavs

    Venter starts at GA. Mavs attack look move controlled than last week. Rothwell looking very speedy and sharp and has put up most of the shots for Pulse. Burger unable to get into the game.

    But having said all of that it was nearly 2 minutes before either side managed to score.

    QTR 2

    21-15 Mavs

    Pulse staying with Mavs even though their attack was beginning to click. Bayman in commentary says Burger just isn’t available enough, something needs to change

    QTR 3

    30-26 Mavs

    Low scoring, physical and defensive game. Pulse missed the opportunity to reduce the margin to 2 but they are fighting all the way

    FULLTIME:

    Saracens Mavericks 39 London Pulse 32

    Pulse’s young defence played well. The game was physical and there were a few times when they were muscled off the ball and looked to the umpire instead of fighting for possession.

    Mavs have an strong circle defence but the attack is just not connecting.

    MVP Kadeem

    PS look out for he first “toss-up” of the VNSL :yes: :yes:

    QTR

    16-24 Bath

    Storm scored just before the buzzer so I’m sure they have 16 but it wasn’t shown on the screen. Bath not running away it but threatening too. The second half should be interesting especially if Bath decide to empty their bench.

    25-40 Bath

    Bath rang the changes but the outcome didn’t change.

    HALFTIME:
    Strathclyde Sirens 16 Wasps 17

    A lot closer than I thought it would be, but Sirens have played well especially the circle defence.
