Where to Watch: Round 18

There are five live games coming up this weekend as we head into rounds eight and nine.

All ten teams are back in actions as we celebrate the international diversity of the Netball Super League through ‘Show Your International Colours’ across the next four days.

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.

There are four live games taking place across rounds two and three. See how you can watch all the action below.

Leeds Rhinos vs. Severn Stars

In keeping with this weekend’s theme, two New Zealanders go head-to-head on the sideline as Jo Trip’s in form Severn Stars travel up to Hull to take on Liana Leota’s Leeds Rhinos.

The Rhinos head coach featured on the court for Stars last season alongside Paige Reed who also made the move up to West Yorkshire. Last weekend Reed replaced Ellie Bird at goal shooter and scored 37 under the post as Rhinos kept pace with Loughborough Lightning for most of the game but lost out in the final quarter.

Similar for the visitors, Stars led Manchester Thunder all the way until the final quarter but the reigning champions found an extra gear to snatch the win at the University of Worcester Arena.

Stars’ shooter Sigi Burger scored 531 goals for Rhinos last season – her most in the NSL – and she is well on her way to surpassing that total having scored 311 already with a shooting accuracy of 95.4%.

Tune in to Friday Night Netball live on Sky Sports Action, Mix and YouTube from 19:00. Catch the first centre pass at 19:30.

Loughborough Lightning vs. Surrey Storm

Two of the top three go head-to-head at the David Wallace Arena as Loughborough Lightning welcome the leaders Surrey Storm.

Lightning’s win against Rhinos last weekend stretched their unbeaten run at home to nine games. Their last defeat the David Wallace Arena to a side other than Thunder was Storm back in April 2019 where just four goals were the difference.

Storm have made their best start to a season since 2014 with seven wins out of eight. Proscovia Peace takes on her former side where she enjoyed four successful seasons before joining Sunshine Coast Lightning in the Suncorp Super Netball league.

Both sides have strong claims for the NSL title this season – you won’t want to miss this! Tune in on Sky Sports YouTube (UK only) at 18:00.

London Pulse vs. Celtic Dragons

After a week off London Pulse return to court looking to keep pace with the rest of the top four as they host Celtic Dragons.

For Pulse this will be their sixth consecutive home game this season. They have only lost one of their last six games at the Copper Box Arena, coming at the hands of the current holders, Thunder.

There’s some familiarity on the team benches as Dragons head coach Dannii Titmuss-Morris returns to where she was formerly an assistant coach. Whilst they may be on opposite sides in the NSL, Titmuss-Morris and Pulse head coach Sam Bird continue to work together at grassroots, coaching together at Turnford Netball Club.

Watch London Pulse take on Celtic Dragons live on Sky Sports YouTube (UK only) at 18:00.

Saracens Mavericks vs. Manchester Thunder

Kicking off round nine, Saracens Mavericks host Manchester Thunder at the Hertfordshire Sports Village.

After a disappointing result away at Strathclyde Sirens last weekend, Camilla Buchanan will be hoping her side can use their positive home form to bounce back.

Last season’s encounter in Hertfordshire was one of the games of the season as both teams traded the lead throughout with Thunder just edging ahead in the final quarter.

After two impressive performances last weekend, registering 81 against Team Bath and Stars, Nat Metcalf has moved up to the top of the feed standings. Teammate Josie Huckle could make her 150th appearance this weekend as she returns to where she made her NSL debut against the team who she started with.

Tune in from 16:00 live on Sky Sports YouTube (UK only).

Celtic Dragons vs. Strathclyde Sirens

On Monday night it’s a battle between Wales and Scotland as Celtic Dragons host Strathclyde Sirens.

Last week Celtic Dragons made the surprise announcement that seven-time NSL winner Rachel Dunn would be returning to the court in place of Chelsea Beard who has been withdrawn from the Dragons’ squad on medical grounds. Dunn is in line to make her home debut.

Sirens will be full of confidence after their dominant display last weekend against Mavericks – their second biggest win of record.

Watch this fiery encounter live from the House of Sport in Cardiff on Sky Sports Arena, Mix and YouTube (UK only).
