The Sunshine Coast Lightning hosted the West Coast Fever at USC Stadium on Friday evening for a tantalizing pre-season match. Both sides tinkered with interesting lineups, intense defence and, for the Lightning, a surprise attacker. All of this had the local, members-only crowd chomping at the bit for a ‘real’ game day. Fresh from the West Coast, the Fever arrived at USC looking strong, fiery and switch-heavy on the defence. The three month netball break hasn’t seen Fever captain Courtney Bruce lose a step defensively.
