Match Report – Adelaide Thunderbirds v Giants (Round 2, Suncorp Super Netball 2018)
BY GEORGIA MUSOLINO
The Giants have put the rest of the Suncorp Super Netball competition on notice, with an 71-48 victory against Adelaide Thunderbirds at Priceline Stadium. From the first whistle, the Giants pressure held a daunting grip over Adelaide, which often left them on the backfoot. Their well-oiled unit notably accounted for all ends of the court and swiftly secured six goals within the first three minutes, which ultimately foreshadowed the entire game. The teams’ different attacking strategies were quickly distinguished, with the Giants more calculated short throws and bounce passes into the shooters contrasting the Thunderbirds’ lobs to 195cm tall Shimona Nelson.
