Round 13 starts with an exciting Friday Night Netball as Severn Stars host table toppers London Pulse in a mighty clash to kick off a big weekend in the Netball Super League.

We have three live games coming up this round, starting off with Friday Night Netball on Sky Sports – the perfect way to start your weekend.

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.


Severn Stars vs London Pulse

All eyes are on Worcester this evening as current table toppers London Pulse head to the West Midlands for what’s guaranteed to be a hotly contested battle against Severn Stars.

Stars have already doubled their points tally from last season, currently sitting fifth in the league table, with their highest ever NSL finish sixth (2017 and 2018). On for a record breaking year, can Severn Stars change the course of their history against Pulse? The London side have won five of their last consecutive meetings with Stars, including a 13 goal difference in Round three of the 2023 season (63-50).

Stars goal shooter Sigi Burger comes up against her former side in incredible form. Burger has moved to the top of the scoring charts and is the first person to overthrow Surrey Storm’s Proscovia Peace this season. The match up between Burger and Pulse’s formiddable defensive options of Halimat Adio, Funmi Fadoju and Lindsay Keable will certainly be one to watch this Friday Night.

London Pulse enter tonight’s game on a wave of well earned confidence, riding high on their longest winning streak since their inception in the NSL. Head coach Sam Bird will be looking to continue the run as she comes up against her former side, where she was head coach from 2017-2019.

It’s milestones galore this Friday Night as Zara Everitt, Funmi Fadoju, Olivia Tchine, Lindsay Keable, Ashleigh Dekker and Ellie Rattu are all celebrating 50 appearances for London Pulse.

Tune in to watch this exciting Friday Night Netball clash live on Sky Sports Mix and YouTube (UK only) from 19:00. Catch the first centre pass at 19:30.


Saracens Mavericks vs. Surrey Storm

It’s a southern clash on Saturday as Saracens Mavericks host their local rivals Surrey Storm.

Camilla Buchanan’s Saracens Mavericks will be flying high from their adrenaline inducing one goal victory over Leeds Rhinos at the First Direct Arena last week.

Defensive dynamite Jodie Gibson is in fine form, picking up Gilbert Player of the Match last weekend, and will be one to watch against Storm’s powerful shooting combination of Sophie Drakeford-Lewis and Proscovia Peace. Though their 2023 season may have had highs and lows, the Hertfordshire side come into this fixture with history on their side, winning seven of their last nine meetings with Storm.

Visitors Surrey Storm head into their second away game in as many weeks and will be hoping to bounce back from their narrow defeat to top four rivals Manchester Thunder in Round 12 (57-49).

Mikki Austin’s side will be looking for their first win away at Mavericks since April 2017, entering this battle with form on their side and 15 points ahead in the league than their opponents.

Can Storm bounce back to winning ways? Or will Mavericks continue to dominate the win rate between the two sides?

Set to be an exciting clash, catch all the action in Hertfordshire live on Sky Sports YouTube (UK only) at 16:00.

 


Loughborough Lightning vs. Strathclyde Sirens

Loughborough Lightning return to the David Wallace Arena to host Scottish visitors Strathclyde Sirens in what is set to be a fierce battle on Sunday afternoon.

Lightning returned from a bye round to take a convincing win over Celtic Dragons in Round 12 (65-48). A standout performance from England international Fran Williams earned her another Gilbert Player of the Match award. Williams sits at the top of the NSL standings for intercepts and second in the league for turnovers and is a key contributor to the 2021 champions defensive make up. In the 2023 season Lightning have the second-best defence in the league, with the second-fewest goals conceded and second-fewest average goals conceded per game.

Strathclyde Sirens continue to threaten teams across the league with striking performances, taking Surrey Storm all the way in Round 11 and losing out by just 4 goals (61-65).

Towera Vinkhumbo, who last week secured her 50th cap for the Scottish side, put in an outstanding performance notching up 3 interceptions, 5 deflections and 6 turnovers. Expect fireworks in the match up between Vinkhumbo and Lightning’s Mary Cholhok in this exciting fixture.

Injury news came from the Sirens camp this week, as shooter Stella Oyella was unfortunately ruled out for the rest of the 2023 with an ACL injury.

Watch Loughborough Lightning take on Strathclyde Sirens live on Sky Sports YouTube (UK only) at 16:00.
