Round 16 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.

With one final spot in the semi-finals up for grabs, and a tight battle continuing to demand fans’ attention in the middle of the table, it’s time to look ahead to what is to come in round 16.

On Saturday 1 June fans can watch Saracens Mavericks take on the LexisNexis Cardiff Dragons live on BBC Sport and BBC iPlayer.

Then on Sunday 2 June, London Pulse travel to take on Manchester Thunder at the AO Arena 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.

Saracens Mavericks v LexisNexis Cardiff Dragons – First Centre Pass at 18:00 Saturday 1 June

Camilla Buchanan’s Mavericks and Jill McIntosh’s Dragons will both be disappointed to be out of the running for that elusive fourth place finish this season. Whilst Mavericks currently sit in seventh and Dragons in eighth, it isn’t all over yet as just a handful of points separate the teams sat in fifth to eighth on the table and there is a lot of pride to play for. Both teams have asked questions of different top sides throughout the season so far, so it is sure to be a real battle when they meet live on BBC Sport tonight.

Saracens Mavericks Player to Watch: Sophie Egbaran has been brought into the Saracens Mavericks squad after Emma Thacker was unfortunately ruled out for the rest of the season with an ankle injury. Egbaran is a young shooting talent who was previously playing in Loughborough Lightning’s U21 squad and has also just been named in the Future Roses programme for 2024-25. Will she get the chance to show the NSL what she is made of on court tonight?

LexisNexis Cardiff Dragons Player to Watch: Jacqui Newton produced a stellar performance in round 16, earning herself the goal defence bib in Sasha Corbin’s Team of the Week. Her defensive partnership with Leah Middleton has grown in strength as the season has progressed and Dragons will be relying on the pair continuing to pick up plenty of ball to enable them to compete with the Mavericks’ defensive prowess.

Manchester Thunder v London Pulse – First Centre Pass at 18:00 Sunday 2 June

Manchester Thunder return to the AO Arena for this game which could prove crucial in the fight for a home semi-final. If Pulse can defeat Thunder they will not only improve their chances of securing a home semi-final but they’ll also send out a clear statement and be able to build some real confidence heading into the semi-finals and Grand Final with a win over the current table toppers. The crowd at the AO Arena won’t go down without a fight though, and Manchester Thunder will want to put out a winning performance for their loyal fans.

Manchester Thunder Player to Watch: Elia McCormick has made the most of her opportunities when they’ve come this season. Signed as a Training Partner for Manchester Thunder, she has been brought into the matchday squad numerous times and trusted to enter the court at key moments by coach Karen Greig. The young defender’s performances have caught the eye of fans and selectors alike, earning her an invitation to join the Future Roses programme for 2024-25. Fans can expect more fast footwork and flying intercepts to come from this young talent.

London Pulse Player to Watch: Liv Tchine has continued to shine under the post for London Pulse this year, and round 15 was no exception. She picked up the player of the match award and was named in Sasha Corbin’s Team of the Week in the goal shooter position after shooting at 100% accuracy throughout Pulse’s win over Dragons. Pulse will need Tchine to stand strong in the circle against the pressure of the Thunder defence and continue this impressive accuracy as they face the table toppers this weekend.

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.

On Friday fans can head to the Team Bath Arena to watch Team Bath take on Strathclyde Sirens at 7:30pm. These two teams last met at the NSL 2024 Season Opener in a tight match which saw Team Bath take a four-goal win. Will Strathclyde Sirens be able to reverse the result in this return fixture?

Saturday sees Severn Stars travel to face Leeds Rhinos at 3pm. This is a must win game for the Yorkshire-based side if they are to keep their hopes of a top four finish alive. If Severn Stars win this one, they will make club history and confirm their place in the semi-finals, but Rhinos are not likely to go down without a fight in front of their home crowd.

Finally, Surrey Storm are looking to get back to winning ways at home at 6pm on Saturday when they face Loughborough Lightning. With Ugandan shooting stars at each end of the court in Proscovia Peace-Nwokocha and Mary Cholhok, this is sure to be a game that keeps fans at Surrey Sports Park on the edge of their seats!
