Traditional Rivals to Take the Court in Grand Final rematch

The Victorian Fury will look to continue their winning ways this week against last year’s runners-up, the NNSW Waratahs in the grand final rematch.

The last time they played, in the 2016 grand final, the Fury were the victors, defeating the Waratahs 53-46.

The Fury sit second on the ANL ladder, narrowly behind the Queensland Fusion who are ahead on percentage only, whilst the Waratahs sit at fourth with two wins.

Victorian Fury Head Coach Leesa Gallard said she expecting a hard-fought battle.

“Anytime you play NSW at any level, it is going to be a tough contest but we are ready to play that sort of game and put out a strong performance throughout the game,” Gallard said.

The Fury are coming-off two convincing wins against the Territory Storm, and will endeavour to continue that run into this round.

“We are always working to keep our pass efficiency high. We shall fine tune some aspects this week and be looking to put out a strong four quarter effort.”

The Fury will come-up against former player, Mikaela Vaughan, who has joined the Waratahs after signing-on as a training partner with the NSW Swifts.

The Waratahs are also boosted with the addition for former Swifts player, Lauren Moore, to their team, and retaining Vanessa Mullampy, who was named 2016 ANL MVP.

The Fury will host the Waratahs at the State Netball Hockey Centre this Saturday and Sunday at 5pm and 1pm.
