Sirens pick up their first point, whilst a new look Pulse side get revenge on Stars

Round 11 of the Netball Super League (NSL) did not disappoint with London Pulse getting their revenge on Severn Stars and Leeds Rhinos making a late charge to put Loughborough Lightning under pressure live on NetballPass.

Pulse started a team full of changes with South African SPAR Protea, Nichole Taljaard, starting at wing attack and England Rose Alicia Scholes stepping in at centre.

However, the London side showed no teething issues as they won the first quarter by 9 goals, before going on to win every quarter after that too.

Taljaard played a fantastic game at wing attach making 49 feeds into the circle, receiving 20 centre passes as well as making one interception and one deflection.

In the shooting circle, England Rose Olivia Tchine was unstoppable as she shot at 96% scoring 47 of Pulse’s eventual 72 goals.

Next up on NetballPass was Rhinos vs Lightning, which turned out to be a game of two halves.

Lightning struck early against Rhino’s as they scored 18 goals in the opening 15 minutes giving them an eight-goal lead.

However, it was clear that Rhinos weren’t just about to roll over and let Lightning ease past, as they found a second lease of life and went on a late charge in the second half winning the penultimate quarter 21-14, cutting Lightning’s lead down to just 5 going into the final 15.

However, it just wasn’t enough to catch Lightning with Ugandan She Crane Mary Cholhok ever reliable in the circle for them and England Rose Beth Cobden a force to be reckoned with at wing defence.

Elsewhere in the NSL, Strathclyde Sirens picked up their first point as they drew with Cardiff Dragons, Saracens Mavericks returned to winning ways as they beat Team Bath and Manchester Thunder beat Surrey Storm.
