The Bull Sharks Sapphire Series side sent a major scare through the undefeated Jets at Nissan Arena, pushing them right up to the final buzzer in a thrilling draw. 

But it was tough afternoon for the Ruby side who fell to their second consecutive loss.   

Sapphire Series

Bull Sharks drew 66-66 

How the match was played:

The game ended in a draw, reflecting a full team effort. Our defenders transitioned strongly, and the attack connected beautifully, with our shooters serving as excellent targets. Our defence throughout the court was impressive. Defenders committed to their one-on-one strategy, which eventually paid off by winning crucial balls under pressure.

The highlight: 

The entire game was a highlight. While a win would have been nice, and we had plenty of opportunities, the Jets are currently the only undefeated team in the competition. This game gave us a clear understanding of where we stand against the best teams in the series. 

What made you happy: 

I am thrilled to see our training efforts yielding results. Our analysis and targeted focus on specific areas are clearly paying off, and the girls are incredibly receptive to this approach.   

Bull Sharks Netball:

We consistently play with our unique style and brand, never compromising on our sportsmanship or our ability to play the game with integrity.

The work to do: 

As we approach a double header this weekend, we need to be strategic about player load management and well-being. Our depth will be crucial, allowing us to consolidate existing combinations while making impactful changes as needed.

Trademark Player:

My pick this week would be Sasha-May Flegler. She faced a much more experienced and seasoned opponent, yet executed our game plan flawlessly. Her disruptive defence and solid, reliable transition to attack were exceptional.

Ruby Series 

Bull Sharks lost 54-50.

Where it was won: 

It was a disappointing performance from our Ruby Series girls this week. They certainly did not play to their full potential. We simply didn’t turn up to play until the last 10 minutes of the game where we cut down the 10-goal lead that the Jets had down to 1 goal.  However, unfortunately, under pressure with only minutes left on the clock we made crucial errors on a number of our gains.       

 The highlight: 

What made you happy:  To see our team take the court together for the first time this year due to a number of injuries. 

Bull Sharks Netball: 

Although we had another loss, it was really great to see the girls rally around each other and to see them stay and support our Sapphire Series team take on the Jets.

The work to do:  

We need to address our slow starts and our unforced errors this week at training.

Trademark Player:

Jorja Gisinger had a strong and accurate game under the post shooting 32/33 goals at 97 per cent.
