Match Report – Collingwood Magpies v West Coast Fever (Round 9, Suncorp Super Netball 2018)
BY JANE EDWARDS
Last time West Coast Fever came to town, they were unceremoniously trounced by the rejuvenated Vixens. Two weeks later, they arrived to prove a point about playing away from home. The Magpies, facing diminishing finals aspirations, were just as intent on saving some face against the top team in the competition. With a small home crowd of under 2000, Collingwood fans did not share the same faith, enabling Fever to go about their business with unanticipated ease. From the outset, Fever defenders Courtney Bruce and Stacey Francis worked hard together to restrict Caitlin Thwaites leading space in goal circle.
