Where to Watch: Round 17

All ten teams are back in action this weekend as we enter the final stages of the 2023 season!

The Final Four may have been confirmed but there’s still plenty of exciting netball still to come. And it all starts 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.

Team Bath vs. Manchester Thunder

First up, we have a battle between two of the league’s most successful sides as Team Bath welcome Manchester Thunder for their final home game of the season.

The famous Blue and Gold have lifted the NSL title five times, but this season has been one of transition for Asha Francis and her side. Having lost the likes of Serena Guthrie, Layla Guscoth and Sophie Drakeford-Lewis in recent seasons, a new crop of talent is coming through including Jayda Pechova who is amongst the top five interceptors in the league.

But tonight she will face a difficult challenge trying to keep the league’s sharpest shooter at bay. Lenize Potgieter, who is currently shooting at an incredible 96.08%, comes back to face her former club.

Last weekend Thunder bounced back to winning ways in their arena game against Leeds Rhinos – setting a new club attendance record. The reigning champions will be hoping to kick on to try and secure a home semi-final.

Tune into Friday Night Netball from 19.00, live on Sky Sports Action and YouTube (UK only).

Strathclyde Sirens vs. London Pulse

Speaking of arena games, Strathclyde Sirens are building up for ‘Super Saturday’ at the Emirates.

So far Sirens have won two out of six home games but were successful in their last outing against Bath. Towera Vinkhumbo has been standing tall at the back of the court and has risen to the top of the standings for intercepts. She also sits just one place off the top for turnovers.

But the towering defender from Malawi will have to be on her A game if she and her Sirens’ team are going to stop London Pulse.

Sam Bird’s side sit top of the NSL, one win away from their highest ever points total. On the road, Pulse have been imperious, winning seven out of seven which included trips to Surrey Storm and Manchester Thunder in the last two rounds.

Coming back into league action after a week off, Pulse will be determined to hold on to top spot.

Watch Strathclyde Sirens vs. London Pulse live on Sky Sports YouTube (UK only) at 16.00.

Severn Stars vs. Saracens Mavericks

From Glasgow to Worcester, our final game of the weekend sees fifth take on sixth as Severn Stars welcome Saracens Mavericks.

At the start of the season, Stars, who finished bottom of the table last season, pulled off a surprise claiming their first victory over Mavericks since 2018.

Since then, Jo Trip’s side have become a force to be reckoned with and are on course to claim their highest ever league finish. Sigi Burger is enjoying her best ever season under the post and sits top of the Gilbert Top Scorer leaderboard.

Whilst Mavericks have been unable to claim back-to-back victories this season, head coach Camilla Buchanan will see this as the ideal opportunity to correct this and leapfrog Stars into fifth place. And they have reason to believe they can achieve exactly that, having won their last three games on the road.

Head over to Sky Sports YouTube (UK viewers only) at 19.00 to watch Stars vs. Mavericks.
