Match Preview: Round 4

West Coast Fever will look to continue their unbeaten start to the 2018 Suncorp Super Netball season when they host the NSW Swifts at HBF Stadium this Sunday. 

Fever head into the game fresh from its one goal away victory against 2017 champions Sunshine Coast Lightning, while the Swifts also managed a one goal win in Round 3.

The Swifts will be searching for their third win of the season, both their victories against Giants Netball and Queensland Firebirds have been decided by a single goal, while their loss against the Melbourne Vixens was a two-goal deficit.

Fever come into the game confident with their flexibility in the goal circle, which was on display against Sunshine Coast with Nat Medhurst and Jhaniele Fowler both capable of influencing the score.

While at the other end captain Courtney Bruce and Vice-Captain Stacey Francis continue to make life difficult for their opponents to impact the scoreboard. 

Former Fever Training Partner Sophie Garbin returns to Western Australia following her MVP performance for Western Sting in last year’s ANL grand final. Garbin has proved to be an exciting prospect for the Swifts in her appearances in 2018.

One mid-court match up could see 21U Australian World Cup Youth teammates Claire O'Brien and Jess Anstiss do battle on court.
