As we surge into the second half of the Netball Super League, we have three more live games coming your way this week. Starting proceedings off is another brilliant Friday Night Netball battle live on Sky Sports as the Celtic Dragons take on defending champions Manchester Thunder.

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 all the action.

Celtic Dragons vs Manchester Thunder

Friday Night Netball has its turn in Cardiff as Round 11 kicks off with an exciting clash between Celtic Dragons and defending champions Manchester Thunder. Fans will be treated to the roar of a sold out arena as Dragons host the first of two consecutive home games.

Celtic Dragons will be entering tonight’s game with everything to gain, after a run of closely fought matches, can the Cardiff side go one better? Dragons’ performance in Round 9 saw them on the wrong side of a one goal game against Strathclyde Sirens in one for the history books while in Round 10 they narrowly lost out to Leeds Rhinos, who bagged their first win of the season.

Rachel Dunn, who joined Dragons as a replacement player part way through the season, will be hoping to help her side to their second win of the season. Having only made four appearances for the club in the 2023 season so far, Dunn has proved why she is a legend of the Netball Super League- scoring 126 goals at 94.03% accuracy, proving a game changer for the Welsh side. Dragons were without Dunn when they faced Manchester Thunder in Round 1 of this season- can the seven time NSL champion be their lucky charm?

Our one to watch for this match has to be Trinidad and Tobago international, Shaquanda Greene-Noel. A defensive dynamite, Greene-Noel sits top of the turnovers on 54, five ahead of her nearest rival. The Dragons defender also appears joint top of the league for most intercepts (32), tied with Lightning’s Fran Williams and sits just behind Funmi Fadoju and Layla Guscoth for deflections (41).

For Manchester Thunder maintaining their 100% win record over Celtic Dragons will be key, especially after slipping just behind London Pulse into third on goal difference in the league standings. Thunder displayed the depth of their squad in their last match against Strathclyde Sirens, with two young debutants entering the Super League. Harriet Jones (18) and Pippa Morgan (16), who stepped into the NSL for the first time and both made memorable impressions, with Morgan making a huge interception for her side in the closing minutes of the game.

Due to strong performances in Round 10, Thunder captain Nat Metcalf, Shadine van der Merwe and Taylor McKevitt all featured in the NSL’s Team of the Week. Metcalf dominates the league leader board for feeds, with 257, 25 more than the second placed Jess Shaw and Beth Dix.

Team Bath vs Severn Stars

Super Saturday gets underway with an exciting clash between Team Bath and visitors Severn Stars, as Bath host their second home game in two weeks.

Team Bath will be hoping to make it two from two, after beating Leeds Rhinos in Round 10 (61-54), their second win of the season after beating Strathclyde Sirens in Round 4 by just one goal (49-48). After an impactful performance against Rhinos in last week’s Friday Night Netball, Sophie Kelly makes an appearance in the NSL Team of the Week for the first time. The GA scored 35 goals at a 92% accuracy, unusually outscoring her Goal Shooter counterpart.

Team Bath have the upper hand in win records, with a 100% win rate over Severn Stars in their history in the Super League. In the league standings, Stars sit in 5th place with Bath currently in 8th.

Severn Stars will be looking to get back to winning ways after suffering back to back defeats in their last two fixtures, missing out against top four sides Loughborough Lightning (41-61) and Surrey Storm (42-79).

Stars’ 2023 recruits have certainly been making their mark for the Worcester based side. Sigi Burger currently sits third on the Top Scorer leader board with 382 goals currently shooting at 95.02% accuracy this season whilst player/coach Jo Trip sits fifth on the leader board for most intercepts (23) and turnovers (43).

The last time these two sides met Team Bath took the win by 10 goals (50-40). Will history repeat itself or will the stars align for this one?

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

London Pulse vs Leeds Rhinos

An in form London Pulse side return home to the Copper Box to take on rivals Leeds Rhinos after two previous rounds on the road.

With a huge win over Saracens Mavericks in Round 10, London Pulse powered into second place equal on points to both Surrey Storm and Manchester Thunder. In an impressive performance Olivia Tchine picked up Gilbert Player of the Match, shooting at 95% accuracy and scoring a prolific 42 goals for her side.

Tchine is just one of the many Pulse players making an impact this season, with the GS appearing alongside teammates Jade Clarke and Halimat Adio in the NSL’s Team of the Week from Round 10. Defensive star Funmi Fadoju is in the number one spot of the deflections leader board, making 49 so far this season.

Visitors Leeds Rhinos will be flying high off their first win of the season, securing those important three points in their Round 10 fixture against Celtic Dragons (55-46).

Australian U21 Jemma Donoghue made her first starting 7 appearance for Rhinos in their Round 10 game against Team Bath. In other defensive news Vicki Oyesola also shone during both games for Rhinos making a huge impact with 7 interceptions, 3 deflections and 9 turnovers in their win on Sunday.

Pulse have only ever lost to Rhinos once, in their first meeting back in 2021 with Pulse winning three of the last four meetings between the two sides. Can Rhinos continue their winning streak this weekend or will Pulse prevail?
