Magpies Netball v Giants Netball
After enduring a heartbreaking one-goal loss in the last year’s semi-final, the Magpies will be out for revenge (and the eight points) when they meet the Giants in round seven in Sydney on Sunday.
Both teams are coming off the bye, so with a week off to refresh both the body and mind, you can expect a fast-paced and physical contest at Qudos Bank Arena between the two sides.
The Giants sit in second position, only one win behind the West Coast Fever; while the Magpies are placed seventh, but only trail the Giants by six championship points.

The two teams are coming off mixed results following their round six performances.
The Magpies made a triumphant statement in Tasmania, defeating the Queensland Firebirds by five goals in what could be a season-defining victory.
New recruit Erin Bell had her best game in the black and white stripes, leading the Magpies to victory with 33/39 in goals.
The Magpies’ mid-court was firing on all cylinders, with Shae Brown and Madi Robinson combining for 40 goal assists, while Ash Brazill was back to her very best with three flying interceptions to quell the Firebirds’ attack.
Meanwhile, the Giants put out an almighty challenge to the league-leading West Coast Fever, but ultimately fell short by two goals in Perth after four quarters of action.
The Giants flaunted their versatile attack against the Fever, with their 61 goals spread evenly amongst the trio of Susan Pettitt, Jo Harten and Kristina Brice.
