Vitality Netball SuperLeague

Round 14 Preview: Hertfordshire Mavericks V Surrey Storm

This weekend sees Mavericks face Surrey Storm – 1 place behind us in the league they have also secured a coveted place in the semi finals.  Neither team will be going into this match complacent as a home semi final is still within the grasp of both teams.  Mavericks need to win one of their two remaining matches to secure this, whilst Surrey can only keep this in their sights with a win against Mavericks.  So it really is still all to play for.

When Mavericks and Storm met in the Phase one of the season, at showcase event London Live, Mavericks came away victorious. Surrey will not want a repeat of this result and so we know a tough match-up is ahead.  But as has been characteristic of Mavericks this season, our focus is on how we play OUR game.  Of course we have analysed Storm’s game and worked on how to play against that, BUT more importantly we have focused on how we play our game to take the victory.

Every player on court has a job to do in BOTH attack and defence.  Everyone is focused on the game plan and ready to show why Mavericks are Championship contenders.

Sam Bird, Head Coach, Said: “Any match against Storm is always one the players and staff look forward to. Both sides have fantastic squads and we are confident about putting out another strong performance against them. We have worked hard all season and are relishing the challenge of taking on Storm in front of our own fans on Saturday

Saturday’s game is once again a sell out at the HSV with FCP at 18.30.  If you are coming down to the match – don’t forget to wear purple and make sure we can hear you loud and proud throughout the game!  If you have not been able to get a ticket – we will be tweeting the game live via @hertsmavericks and England Netball Members can also watch the match via the LiveStream.
