The Vitality Netball Super League kicked off on February 5th. Now in the sixth round, we shall see Team Bath Netball vs Manchester Thunder on March 4th at 7:30pm live on Youtube.

Please note that this is a preview for Round Six, where Round Five is halfway through play; therefore it is difficult to discuss particular matches. Due to these difficulties, I have taken the precaution of using the table as it stands after Round Four.

The other matches are as follows:

London Pulse vs Severn Stars - March 5th at 2 pm

Strathclyde Sirens vs Surrey Storm - March 5th at 2 pm

Loughborough Lightning vs Saracens Mavericks - March 5th at 7 pm

Leeds Rhinos Netball vs Wasps - March 6th at 3 pm

Severn Stars vs Celtic Dragons - March 7th at 5:30 pm. With this final round six match being shown on Sky Sports!

The first match of Round Six could be said to go either way: Team Bath Netball sit fourth in the league (having won and lost two, respectively) whilst Manchester Thunder sit comfortably at the top (having won all four of their games). Manchester Thunder has strong Goal Attack and Shooter, Eleanor Cardwell who added 21 to her scoresheet against Strathclyde Sirens (who sit seventh in the superleague) - whilst also providing 14 feeds to partner Joyce Mvula. This match finished at 60-71 to Manchester Thunder so no doubt they'll storm past Team Bath Netball.

The next day we see London Pulse vs Severn Stars. With a three-point difference, it is anybody's match; however, the huge goal difference of 43 tells the story for itself. The Severn Stars have scored 198 yet conceded 233... these goals speak for themselves. Not even Roses Academy athlete Issy Eaton, who put nine away against the Saracens Mavericks, will be able to help. Yet, we may be surprised! We shall wait and see...

At the same time, the Strathclyde Sirens will play the Surrey Storms! As previously stated, Strathclyde sits seventh in the league; therefore, their match against ninth place Surrey Storm will be a nail biter.

Loughborough Lightning stormed ahead of Surrey Storm 56-72 as they started with five Vitality Roses on court: Beth Cobden, Ella Clark, Hannah Jospeh and Natalie Panagarry. We hope to see all the players back on the evening of March 5th to take charge of whilst playing the Saracens Mavericks. Vitality Rose Gabriella (Abby) Marshall will see positions Centre and Wing Defence in order to help the Mavericks keep the Lightning goals out!

The penultimate Round Six match will see Leeds Rhinos Netball play the Wasps. Both teams are very close in the table with a goal difference of 10, both sitting in the negatives - with Leeds Rhinos having a game in hand (at time of writing). There has been a lot of talk about the Wasps not having found their feet yet - we can only hope that this match will be their match.

Finally, we come to the match that will be shown on Sky Sports on March 7th at 5:30 pm... Severn Stars vs Celtic Dragons. Both teams sit at the bottom of the table with Celtic Dragons yet to win a game. Severn Stars almost won against the Mavericks with a goal difference of ten. This comes with very similar table stats to the Dragons who, surprisingly, don't have the lowest goals for, with 196, though they have the joint highest goals against. So, the final match of Round Six will be an interesting one!
