NSW prepare to contest Finals today

The excitement is building in Melbourne as teams prepare to contest Semi Finals today, Friday 11 April, at the 2014 National Netball Championships, to get one step closer for a shot at taking home the Champions title.

The NSW 17/U Team finished atop their ladder undefeated, with a draw to Queensland in Round 5 the only match to prevent them from a perfect run into Finals.  They will meet South Australia today at 11:30am AEST with the winner advancing straight to tomorrow’s (Saturday 12 April) Grand Final showdown at 12:45pm.

The NSW 19/U Team were unlucky to finish outside the top four, needing to win against Northern Territory in their final round robin match to have any chance of contesting Finals.  Instead they will look at finishing the week-long tournament on a high when they meet Australian Capital Territory today at 1pm, looking to advance to tomorrow’s fifth place play-off.

NetballNSWTV brings you some of the highlights from both NSW State Teams throughout the round robin stage of the tournament; check the action out below and see the full Finals Fixtures for both 17/U and 19/U at the bottom of the page (plus, where you can follow Netball NSW on social media for score updates!).
