Netball

The Bull Sharks are backing in their fitness for the weekend's double header at Nissan Arena.   

Saturday Bull Sharks v Tigers

Sunday Bull Sharks v Wildcats 

Sapphire Series

Last time they met:

2023 Rd 10 - Tigers won 59-51

2023 Rd 14 - Wildcats won 69-67

The opposition: Both opponents are towards the bottom of the ladder with just one win each.   

Where it will be won: 

We have steadily been building our consistency and we have shown that if we stick to our game plan, we can overcome any opposition.

One to watch: 

I’m looking for another two big games by Kaylin van Greunen. She has proven her versatility and ability to be lethal at the post. Saha-May Flegler has also come into her own, building quietly each game in the position of WD. Newcomer Sophie Westover is also cementing her place in the Bull Sharks as she keeps applying learnings game by game.

The focus: 

Executing our bread and butter, which are the basics, really well.

Shuffling the magnets: 

Jayden Molo is still unavailable due to an ankle injury.

The final word:

As the final two games in the first round of the competition, we are really looking to cement our place in the top 4. We will look to apply player load management as we are confident with our depth and versatility in the playing roster.

Ruby Series 

Last time they met: 

2023 Rd 10 v Tigers Bull Sharks lost 66-44

2023  Rd 14 v Wildcats Bull Sharks won 59-33 

The opposition: 

Tigers are currently sitting in first place and are undefeated so far this season.  Wildcats are currently sitting in the lower half of ladder with the 1 win this year so far. 

Where it will be won: 

It will require a full team defensive effort. We will need to convert any turnover balls that we get and keep our unforced errors to a minimum.

The focus: 

In the last few games, we seem to have lost our focus in the second quarter and teams have gotten the jump on us. We will be looking to stay true to our style of play and stay focused on our game plan for the entire 60 minutes.

Shuffling the magnets: 

The side has changed a bit this year and we are really excited that that we haven’t been forced to make any changes through injury for this week. 

The final word:

It is always difficult for players to back up for the second game of a double header weekend. However, our girls are fit and strong and are very capable of taking on the challenge.
