Round six of Suncorp Super Netball (SSN) took place over the weekend, with the ANZ Premiership entering its eighth round, and there were plenty of Vitality Roses involved across both competitions Down Under.

Jo Harten’s GIANTS Netball slipped to a second consecutive defeat after local rivals NSW Swifts beat them 63-51 to move level on points with the league leaders on Sunday.

Helen Housby and Nat Haythornthwaite arrived off the bench to feed the formidable Sam Wallace, who scored all 58 of her attempted shots, as the Swifts won every quarter in an impressive performance.

West Coast Fever continue to look unbeatable as they recorded a sixth straight win to start the season with a 78-55 success at Collingwood Magpies on Saturday.

Wing-defence Stacey Francis-Bayman showed her creative side with a rare goal assist as Fever racked up a score of 44 in the first half, with Geva Mentor and her Magpies teammates unable to contain the league’s top scorers.

In the ANZ Premiership, George Fisher scored in the dying seconds as Southern Steel clinched a dramatic 59-58 victory over Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic on Sunday.

Steel were in control at halftime but the Magic came out fighting with the match going goal for goal by the end before Fisher’s crucial intervention and she was rewarded with the Player of the Match award
