Where to Watch: Round 13

Round 13 of the Netball Super League (NSL) is coming up, so find out all the vital information about where to watch and follow the action over the next few days here.

After fans enjoyed a top of the table clash in round 12 which saw Manchester Thunder go three points clear as league leaders, it’s now time to look ahead to what is to come in round 13.

On Friday 10 May fans can watch Surrey Storm travel to local rivals London Pulse live on Sky Sports.

Then on Saturday 11 May BBC Sport and BBC iPlayer will broadcast what is sure to be an exciting match as the LexisNexis Cardiff Dragons take on Manchester Thunder.

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.

London Pulse v Surrey Storm – First Centre Pass at 19:30 Friday 10 May

Surrey Storm travel to the Copper Box on Friday to take on local rivals London Pulse in a match that always keeps fans on the edge of their seats. Both teams picked up wins in round 12 so will want to build some consistency with another three points tonight. With top four qualification still a possibility for Storm, who are currently sat fifth in the table, fans at the Copper Box are certainly in for a treat as these two sides go to battle!

London Pulse Player to Watch: Alicia Scholes has not only continued to excel in her favourite wing attack position this season, but she’s also made an impact wearing the centre bib. Whichever position she starts in, Storm will need to shut down her drives to the circle edge to break her connection with Pulse’s shooting circle.

Surrey Storm Player to Watch: Pulse took the win over Storm when these two teams first met in 2024 in round two, but Proscovia Peace has since returned to the Surrey side, and has certainly made an impact. She is currently sitting fifth in the Gilbert Top Scorer Leaderboard on 373 goals so far this season, just behind Pulse’s Liv Tchine on 391. Will her inclusion make a difference tonight?

Manchester Thunder v LexisNexis Cardiff Dragons – First Centre Pass at 17:00 Saturday 11 May

The LexisNexis Cardiff Dragons enter this game following a draw and then a loss in rounds 11 and 12, so Jill McIntosh will be demanding a more clinical performance from her team, who are sure to leave it all on the court as they fight for their fifth win this year. The task ahead won’t be easy though, as they face four-time NSL champions Manchester Thunder, who, after defeating Loughborough Lightning last week, now sit proudly at the top of the NSL table. With the opportunity to secure their top four spot tonight (if other results also go their way), Thunder fans can expect another polished performance from the North West side.

Manchester Thunder Player to Watch: Imogen Allison not only picked up the Experience Kissimmee Player of the Match  award in round 12, but she was also selected in the wing defence position in Clare Jones’ Team of the Week. Her move from centre to wing defence in Thunder’s round 12 win over Loughborough enabled her to pick up an impressive amount of ball for her team, so fans can look forward to more flying intercepts from Allison this Saturday.

LexisNexis Cardiff Dragons Player to Watch: Georgia Rowe has been sharing the goal shooter bib with young shooter Hannah Passmore this season and both have put in strong performances. If Dragons are to get across the line in this game, whoever grabs that bib will need to stand up and deliver against the relentless pressure of Thunder’s defence.

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.

After an agonising one-goal loss to London Pulse last week, Leeds Rhinos will be happy to be back in front of a home crowd as they face Saracens Mavericks at 7:30pm on Friday. With both sides still challenging for a top four spot, this is sure to be a real battle out on court.

At the same time on Friday, reigning champions Loughborough Lightning travel to face Team Bath Netball. Loughborough will want to right some wrongs after a defeat to Manchester Thunder in round 12, and fans in the arena will get the chance to watch an exciting match up as young England player Jayda Pechova takes on Ugandan shooting star Mary Cholhok.

Finally, Severn Stars are on the road on to face Strathclyde Sirens at 2pm on Saturday. Severn Stars got back to winning ways in round 12, whilst Sirens are still hunting for that first win of the season. With a large home crowd acting as the eighth player, can Sirens get across the line tonight?
