Match Report – Adelaide Thunderbirds v Melbourne Vixens (Round 4, Suncorp Super Netball 2018)
BY EMMALIE BALNAVES-GALE
Round four of Suncorp Super Netball saw the Adelaide Thunderbirds once again struggle to stand up to the power of their opponents, going down to the clinical Melbourne Vixens 72-50. After a rough start to the season, the Thunderbirds were desperate to prove their worth in Super Netball, but the well-oiled machine of the Vixens was far too strong. The match was a showcase of the significance of having a connected unit of players and no one does team work quite like the Vixens. While the Thunderbirds showed glimpses of impressive play, the Melbourne side was in a league of its own.
