The Rhino is the newest team in Superleague, but they set off an early warning sign that they could potentially be dangerous opponents as they ran out 65-35 winners on failed Dragons who failed to go.

Gary Heathrington and Kevin Seinfeld reveal how netball fits in the unicorn franchise, Dan Ryan can’t wait for the start of Rally Thunder to bid farewell to stubborn sirens, Manchester Thunder are the desperate champions to retain their title, and have fought from the slow start to pick where they left off during the amputated 2020 season . Thunder quickly began with four wins from four matches before the season was canceled amid the Coronavirus pandemic, but it was the sirens that captured the early initiative, and an early turn of the sirens allowed a two-goal lead to form and with unusual mistakes hindered the cause of the thunder. It was the sirens that took the early credit, with Pete Goodwin in attack and new recruiter Taura Fincombo in defense given the Scottish team a lot to be happy with during an impressive first quarter of the season. Lynsey Gallagher took them to the center with three goals and the score was four at the end of the first 12 minutes, and at the end of the first half 12 minutes, Thunder made changes as Laura Malcolm moved into midfield and Caroline O’Hanlon into the winger’s defense and saw a quick start to the quarter that stopped the flow of sirens and fought back. To settle the competition at 16-16 then hit the lead. Karen Gregg’s team had not looked back from that moment, closing the first half with a 23-19 lead as Eleanor Cardwell, who had enjoyed a fantastic Legends series for England, began to find the goal with increasing regularity. A tactical adjustment saw Malcolm move from position to attack on the winger after the first quarter and England Rose used all of her experience to control midfield and help Thunder take off to a successful start after she converted her four-goal deficit into four. An advantage, Thunder inserted Keri Almond in the goalkeeper’s bib, just days after she walked out of retirement to replace injured Lauren Nguyre, and the result was a dominant defensive end in a low-scoring third quarter, with Thunder leading 10-7 to win further. And let Greig bring in some talented young people from the franchise for the fourth quarter. The impressive Lois Pearson was one of these, partnering with Cardwell to help Thunder take the lead into dual characters. As the intense and fast matches progressed, both teams rotated their squad through the closing stages, and Thunder eventually sealed a win with plenty of room for improvement before returning next week. Sirens can get heroes to work for victory and put themselves in good stead to face Severn Stars on Saturday. Sky Sports is your home for netball.
