Match Report – Queensland Firebirds v Giants (Round 11, Suncorp Super Netball 2018)
BY KATRINA NISSEN
The Queensland Firebirds have thrown down the gauntlet, rolling over the second-placed Giants 64-50 in Brisbane. The Firebirds set the tone early by playing hard, body-on-body defence. The Giants tried to combat this by playing with speed as they have done all season. However, this time their work came undone by veteran Susan Pettitt who gave away the ball, in her first touch, thanks to a footwork call. Romelda Aiken was on the move early in the first term. Her work outside the circle has been a feature added to her playbook this season. This movement is designed to allow Gretel Tippett easy passage to the post.
