It’s a tight battle in the race to the finish, with the top four teams separated by just five competition points.  St George lead the way with eight wins and one loss, followed by Sutherland Shire, defending Champions Eastwood Ryde and City of Sydney/Sydney University.

Three of the above teams claimed wins on Wednesday night during Round 9, with St George overcoming Liverpool City (60-34), Eastwood Ryde overcame Manly-Warringah (52-38), while CSNA/Syd Uni accounted for a spirited Newcastle (49-27).  Sutherland Shire was the only top four side to be defeated last night, falling to Baulkham Hills by four goals, 62-58.

It sets up an exciting Round 10 with the top two sides, St George and Sutherland Shire, meeting next Wednesday 28 May at 7pm.  The last time the two sides met earlier this season, St George claimed honours by nine goals on the back of a dominant first quarter performance. Other match-ups for Round 10 include sixth-placed Manly-Warringah taking on Liverpool City in seventh; Newcastle meet reigning Champions Eastwood Ryde, and a tantalising contest awaits between CSNA/Syd Uni and Baulkham Hills.

NetballNSWTV caught up with Head Coaches Jenny O’Keeffe (CSNA/Syd Uni) and Newcastle’s co-coaches Cherie Aoake and Maria Hoad to see how the experienced coaches felt their 2014 seasons were shaping up – check it out below:
