GIANTS Netball Round 7 Preview: GIANTS Netball v Collingwood Magpies Netball
It will be Sydney v Melbourne at Qudos Bank Arena this Sunday as GIANTS Netball face Collingwood Magpies Netball at 1PM for Round 7 of the Suncorp Super Netball. When the teams last met in the 2017 Semi-Final, the GIANTS defeated Magpies 52-51 to progress to the Preliminary Final.
Both teams are returning to the court after a restful bye week and will be putting their all into fighting hard for the win. Before that, GIANTS had a disappointing 61-63 loss to the Fever in Perth in Round 6, while Magpies secured a 67-62 victory over the Firebirds in Launceston.
GIANTS Netball Head Coach Julie Fitzgerald appreciates the down time afforded to players by the bye week.
“We certainly enjoyed having the break and have come back with renewed energy. So we’re looking forward to getting back into it,” she says.
Fitzgerald is also very appreciative of once again being able to play in front of a home crowd.
“We love playing in front of a Sydney crowd. They’re definitely our eight player and it’s great to be at home,” she explains.
The game starts at 1PM AEST on Sunday, 17 June and will be broadcast on Channel Nine, Telstra TV and the Netball Live App.
