When the Queensland Firebirds and Melbourne Vixens met in Round 1 it was the Vixens who were victorious by 13 goals. Since that time the Firebirds have had major front-line changes off the back of injuries to two integral parts of their attacking unit. Having now had a full week of training with their two new members, Erin Burger and Lenize Potgieter, the Firebirds were hoping play would run smoothly. They were right – to begin with. As has been custom for the past few weeks, Firebirds youngster, and the only indigenous player in Suncorp Super Netball, Jemma Mi Mi started at centre for the home side. Given that Round 8 was Indigenous Round, Mi Mi was feeling a range of emotions as she stepped up for the first centre pass.
