Where to Watch: Netball Super League Grand Final

The curtain is set to come down on an incredible Netball Super League (NSL) 2023 season as the third-place play-off and Grand Final take place at the Copper Box Arena on Sunday 11 June.

London Pulse will be looking to win their first NSL title while last year’s runners-up Loughborough Lightning are out to go one better this time.

Meanwhile, Surrey Storm will face Manchester Thunder in the third-place play-off looking to end their seasons on a high.

All the action can be watched live on Sky Sports Action, Mix and YouTube from 13:45.

After an enthralling 20 rounds of the NSL filled with nail-biting matches and standout performances, the final four went head-to-head in two epic semi-finals.

London Pulse secured their place in a first-ever NSL Grand Final with a 55-42 semi-final victory over Surrey Storm.

The first two quarters had yielded little to separate the two sides, with the one-goal lead taken into the first break by Storm quickly eliminated by Pulse, who led by two at halfway.

But the momentum swung dramatically and decisively after half-time, as Pulse rapidly established a seven-goal lead that they held for much of the third quarter, before ruthlessly stretching out to an 11-goal margin at times.

Storm responded resolutely in the final quarter but the damage had already been done, with Pulse now set for Sunday’s set-piece.

In the second semi-final, Loughborough Lightning secured their place in a third successive Grand Final with an impressive home display, defeating last year’s champions Manchester Thunder, 65-59.

In front of a particularly raucous home crowd, the opening quarter was end-to-end at the Sir David Wallace Arena with Lightning leading 17-14 at the first break.

Thunder battled back and took a very narrow one-goal lead heading into half-time meaning it was anyone’s game for the taking heading into the final two quarters.

A dominant ‘championship quarter’ saw Lightning’s relentless pressure swing the game back in their favour and they continued to flourish in attack as they saw the game out.

The NSL third-place play-off and then Grand Final are being shown live on Sky Sports Action, Mix and YouTube from 1.45pm on Sunday 11 June.
