Match Report – Collingwood Magpies v Queensland Firebirds (Round 6, 2018, Suncorp Super Netball)
BY BETHANY SLAUGHTER
Collingwood Magpies have restored confidence in their championship credentials with a win over the in-form Queensland Firebirds. Queensland entered the game as favourites after their impressive win over ladder leaders West Coast Fever in the previous round. Meanwhile, after Collingwood’s underwhelming start to the season, this match was a must-win to stay in touch with the top four. Collingwood coach Kristy Keppich-Birrell decided to swing the axe on two of her most experienced players. The decision to start Shae Brown over Kimberley Ravaillion was not unexpected; Brown has made quality cameos when given the opportunity and has long threatened to snatch the centre bib from Ravaillion.
