Where to Watch: Round 6

Taken during the Netball Super League game between Manchester Thunder and Loughborough Lightning at the Belle Vue Arena, Manchester, England on 3rd March 2023.

It’s time for Round 6, starting with Friday Night Netball!

Make sure you’re following the NSL on TwitterInstagram and TikTok for updates and exclusive behind-the-scenes content, while our YouTube channel is the place to go for highlights if you miss anything.

Here’s how you can watch the action.

Team Bath Netball vs Surrey Storm – 19:30

Team Bath will host current league leaders Surrey Storm tonight at a sold out arena.

A historically hotly contested affair, Team Bath have taken four of the last five wins when the two sides have met. The visitors have won at four consecutive visits to Storm, with Bath’s last defeat at Surrey Sports Park coming in March 2016. However, an in form Storm side will look to boost their head to head record, going into tonight’s fixture with just one loss this season so far, compared to Bath’s four losses in the 2023 season.

Mikki Austin’s Storm became the last side to lose their unbeaten record, defeated by London Pulse in the previous round and will be looking to bounce back with a win, as Layla Guscoth and Sophie Drakeford-Lewis take on their former NSL side. Guscoth is currently top of the standings for turnovers (30) and deflections (32) and will look to show her defensive prowess tonight.

Asha Francis’ Team Bath will be looking to improve their win rate this season, and can be hopeful that an injection of new player Caroline Mtukule can help them to success. Mtukule, captain of Malawi, could make her first appearance for Team Bath after coming into the set up earlier this week. She would be the first player from Malawi to wear the famous Blue and Gold.

Tune in to Friday Night Netball on Sky Sports Mix and YouTube (UK only) from 19:00 with the hype show with Kadeen Corbin and Sasha Corbin before the main channel build-up starts with pre-match interviews and analysis at 19:15.

London Pulse vs Strathclyde Sirens – 19:00 

London Pulse look to continue their 2023 winning streak with their fifth consecutive home game of the season against visitors Strathclyde Sirens.

Fresh off of ending league leaders Surrey Storm’s unbeaten record in the NSL, Pulse will be riding high with confidence as they take on Lesley MacDonald’s side. Pulse’s Berri Neil has shone at GA for the London side, scoring 100 goals already this season – the most she has scored in any NSL season. Neil also boasts a an accuracy of 98.04% and has registered 52 feeds, already featuring twice on the Super League Team of the Week this season.

Sirens look to build on the close scorelines of their last few rounds, losing out to Team Bath by just one goal in Round 4 and registering a draw against Leeds Rhinos last week (the first draw in the NSL since Siren’s drew to Wasps in Round 7 of the 2021 season). The Scottish side will hope to go one better this round, aided by co-captain Beth Dix who is second in the NSL standings for feeds (96). Keep an eye out for Towera Vinkhumbo, who is currently leading on defensive stats for Sirens with 20 turnovers and 12 intercepts. Vinkhumbo’s match up against Pulse’s Liv Tchine will be one to watch.
