Where to Watch: Round 10

As we pass the half-way point and round ten of the Netball Super League (NSL) approaches, find out all the vital information about where to watch and follow the action over the next few days.

Round nine certainly finished the first half of the regular NSL season with a bang after Pulse grabbed a two-goal victory against Saracens Mavericks in London on Monday night.

Each team has had a different but equally fascinating journey through the first half of the NSL. If you’ve missed any of it, find out where to catch up on all the broadcast games here or check out our graph showing every team’s journey so far for a quick overview!

Now it is time to look ahead to round ten as teams begin to face each other for the second time this season. What did they learn from their first meeting in NSL 2024 and which teams will come out on top as they meet again?

On Friday 19 April fans are in for a treat with two back-to-back games to watch on broadcast. First up on BBC Sport sees the reigning champions Loughborough Lightning against Saracens Mavericks, which will be closely followed by Manchester Thunder hosting Severns Stars live on Sky Sports.

All the details on how to watch these unmissable matches can be found here, along with how to keep up to date on all the other games across the weekend.

Loughborough Lightning v Saracens Mavericks – First Centre Pass at 18:00 Friday 19 April

Saracens Mavericks have a challenge ahead as they travel to the Sir David Wallace Arena, home of the reigning champions Loughborough Lightning. Despite a loss in round nine, Mavericks pushed London Pulse all the way, with the game being decided by just two goals thanks to a well-timed London Pulse intercept in the final minutes. Saracens Mavericks’ vice-captain Georgia Lees commented after the game on how proud she was of her side’s improvement between rounds eight and nine, so can they step it up yet another level tonight and hand Lightning just their second loss of the season so far?

Loughborough Lightning Player to Watch: Alice Harvey made a huge impact in Lightning’s round nine win over Severn Stars. She produced a remarkable nine deflections and six gains throughout the game. Her partnership with housemate Nicola Smith continues to develop every time they step out on court and the pair will be looking to build on their successes in the first half of the season as we enter the second half of NSL 2024.

Saracens Mavericks Player to Watch: Emma Thacker returns to face her old club in this match and will want to prove that she made the right decision in making the move down to Hertfordshire. She will need to maintain her signature calm and composed style of play if Mavericks are to challenge Lightning consistently across the whole game.

Manchester Thunder v Severn Stars – First Centre Pass at 19:30 Friday 19 April

If standings remain as they are then fans watching on Friday could be treated to a preview of one of the NSL 2024 semi-finals, making this battle of first versus fourth in the table one not to be missed! In Courtside Podcast this week, Amy Carter described Severn Stars as Manchester Thunder’s “bogey team” and as Stars are enjoying their most successful NSL season to date this year, fans of the Worcester-based side will believe they pick up another three-points against four-time NSL champions Thunder tonight.

Manchester Thunder Player to Watch: Amy Carter picked up the Experience Kissimmee Player of the Match award in round nine after delivering an exceptional 45 feeds into the circle across 60 minutes in the centre position. She provided a constant steadying presence in Thunder’s midcourt, proving crucial in both attack and defence. This consistency will be vital if Thunder are to maintain their trademark clinical style against the pressure of Stars’ defensive unit.

Severn Stars Player to Watch: Captain Gabby Marshall started her Super League career in Thunder colours but has since become an integral part of Star’s midcourt, providing leadership both on and off court. Her total commitment to intercepts and relentlessly chasing down loose balls shows her dedication to her team, so Stars fans can rest assured that she will give her all on Friday to get her team across the line.

The rest of the round

On top of our broadcast games, there are three more matches taking place this round that you can buy tickets to watch live, or follow the action on X.

Surrey Storm travel to face the LexisNexis Cardiff Dragons at 7pm on Friday. Both teams enter this game following a win after a couple of consecutive losses and will be keen to build some momentum, so this is sure to be a fiery battle. Storm have won all of the previous five battles between these two teams, so history is on their side, but they are yet to pick up a win away from home in NSL 2024, so will Dragons be able to use their home court to their advantage?

Leeds Rhinos are also on the road, travelling to Glasgow to face Strathclyde Sirens at 7:30pm. Rhinos will be keen to bounce back after a heavy defeat to Thunder in round nine, but Sirens have been consistently making improvements throughout the first half of the season and their fans will be doing all they can to will their team towards their first win of NSL 2024 in round ten.

Finally, on Saturday London Pulse host Team Bath at 7pm. After a two-goal victory at the Copperbox against Saracens Mavericks, Sam Bird will want to pick up another three points at home this week. Meanwhile Asha Francis will be looking for more of the same from her Team Bath squad who pushed Cardiff Dragons all the way in round nine and came so close to picking up their second win of the season.
