Round 3 Preview

GIANTS Return Home for Round 3

GIANTS Netball are back in Sydney for Round 3 of the 2019 Suncorp Super Netball season and they will play host to Collingwood Magpies Netball on Sunday at Sydney Olympic Park’s Quaycentre.

GIANTS have a 4-1 record against the Magpies across their previous meetings. Magpies have won one and drawn the other of their first two games of the season, while GIANTS are on the hunt for their first win.

“We are concentrating very much on ourselves and wanting to get our own game right because we know that’s where we’re letting ourselves down but also very excited to be back at Quaycentre and in front of our home crowd and all of our fans,” says GIANTS Netball Head Coach Julie Fitzgerald.

The Magpies have a win and a draw on the board after two rounds of Suncorp Super Netball.

“I think they’ll be really hurt from their draw last week, that was a very patchy game where everybody had highs and lows and they lost momentum a couple of times so they’ll be very determined to do better this week,” says Fitzgerald.

The game starts at 5PM AEST on Sunday, 12 May and will be streamed on Telstra TV and available via the Netball Live App.
