It was a pleasure to play Southern Blast in front of our whānau and friends at the Silver Fern Farms Event Centre in Te Aroha.
Comets came out strong at the start of the match in Auckland and WBOP took time to settle with them chasing the score to finish 10-13 after the 1st Quarter.
This week (Saturday, 2nd April) our ranks were bolstered by the inclusion of WBOP Magic training partner Martina Reekers. Martina played all four quarters. There is always a transition period for athletes playing in two squads and their availability for trainings due to loading and coaches being mindful of the need to balance their programme.
Tania Fink and Wirihana (Wids) Wilson were named in the 2022 National Umpire Squad for the 2022 edition of the ANZ Premiership and Synergy Hair Netball League. Tania is in her fifth year in the squad whilst Wids has been named for the first time.
