The ANZ Championship returns to the standard schedule of five matches
for Round 4, including three trans-Tasman contests.
A highlight this weekend will be the meeting in Auckland between the
Mystics and Vixens; this will be the first time since the 2010
Commonwealth Games we have seen Maria Tutaia and Sharelle McMahon back
on the same court, and with the addition of Cathrine Latu and Kate
Beveridge, expect some seriously hot action in the shooting circle!
Round 4 also sees the return of the Canterbury Tactix to the
competition; they will come together as a team for the first time since
the Christchurch earthquake devastated their community. The league
wishes to acknowledge the outstanding support provided by all associated
with the Waikato/Bay of Plenty Magic in hosting Monday night's match on
behalf of the Tactix.
Mo'onia Gerrard celebrates her 50th ANZ Championship match this weekend.
She joins Laura Langman, Irene van Dyk, Casey Williams, who all played
their half-century matches last week.
