NetballNSWTV caught up with NSW 19/U Head Coach and Captain, Briony Akle and Kiera Austin, ahead of the tournament opener with both commenting how excited the NSW State Team is to get the competition underway.
“[After] probably three months of preparation, the girls are super excited [to get underway],” Akle told NetballNSWTV.
“We’re hoping that everyone gets behind us, especially against the Victorians for our first game up… I’m sure we [can count on having] a good crowd to cheer the girls onto victory.”
