Jenny van Dyk’s girls started well when they beat South­ern St­ings 51-43 in their open­ing game last Sun­day. They are cur­rently top of the log with four points.

To­mor­row’s games prom­ise to be ex­cit­ing with two der­bies in the mix. The first derby will see the East­ern Cape Aloes take on their provin­cial ri­vals, the Western Cape St­ings at 3pm.

In the 5pm Gauteng derby, sparks will fly when Jaguars face Dr El­sje Jor­daan’s Fire­balls in their sec­ond match of the week­end. Both Gauteng teams started well in their first games. The Jaguars had a good start to the de­fence of their ti­tle when they beat the Di­a­monds 81-12 and the St­ings while Fire­balls beat both Mpumalanga Sun­birds (44-25) and the Aloes (53-28).

Over the last four years, Tshina Mu­dau has be­come a reg­u­lar fix­ture on the team sheet which means she has been through the best and worst of times with the Jaguars. She was part of the team that fin­ished run­ners-up for two suc­ces­sive years be­fore they even­tu­ally be­came the Brutal Fruit cham­pi­ons last year.

“The im­por­tant thing is to re­main fo­cused on what we can con­trol on the court and let the re­sult take care of it­self,” said the Tuks player.

Jenny-Lee Del­port’s Baob­abs will want to bounce back when they face Ja­guers af­ter a 61-39 loss to North West Flames. They are cur­rently eighth on the 10 team log af­ter two games.

In other matches to­mor­row, the Baob­abs face Marie Nel’s Sun­birds. Three-time cham­pi­ons Free State Crinums play King­dom Stars while Flames take on North­ern Cape Di­a­monds.

On Sun­day, Fire­balls square up to King­doms Stars and Crinums take on Di­a­monds and Flames close off the day against Aloes

Mean­while, Net­ball South Africa Pres­i­dent, Ce­cilia Molok­wane, is in Gaborone, Botswana to at­tend the 7th IWG World Con­fer­ence on Women in Sport.
