I must admit for along time i thought that netball was "girls game" and i shouldnt bother following it.

However....

I'am a casual follower now......it started when i got dragged to my sisters grand final despite the early start, i throughly enjoyed the game and my sister team won which was great because they really stuck it up the stepford wives that seemed to be the mothers of the girls in the opposition. :mrgreen:

I also watch the odd thunderbirds game and watch the Australian girls whenever possible the rivalry between Australia and NZ is wonderful and it was great to see them beat the sheep shaggers last time and send liz ellis off in the right way (she is a cool lady and a good sport if the appearances on the glass house are anything to go by. :lol: ).

The problem before was that ABC didnt give netball the time of day unless you wanted to watch ABC 2. :| Now with the new trans-tasman league on next month (we get to beat the kiwis EVERY WEEK! :twisted: :dance: ) and it being on fox sports it will get the respect it deserves (every.single.game.live i hear).I shall be watching and following the thunderbirds (what a godawful name but hell they have assembled a good team and they are a south aussie team) and maybe even put an investment on a game or two. :shifty:


Anyway enough of my rambling!

Here is the fixture and the teams for the uneducated.

If the Firebirds are from QLD (I'm pretty sure they are) then yeah. They beat the Northern Mystics (from Auckland).

Australia defeated New Zealand in Adelaide last night, 51 - 44, to level the series 1-1. The final game, to decide who wins the Constellation Cup, will be held in Melbourne on Sunday.

was about to make a new topic on the current Netball World Cup being played at the moment, but I don't think there's enough interest, so I post about it in here instead.

It is currently played in Sydney, with 16 nations competing.

Has anyone been watching? All games are shown on Foxtel, with Australia games being played on Ten/ One. I've watched a little of the Australian games but not a great deal of it though.

The Grand Final will be held this Sunday.
