Canberra GIANTS ready for top of the table clash

The Canberra GIANTS face their toughest challenge of the season when they take on defending champions the Victoria Fury in Melbourne this weekend.

The Canberra GIANTS are currently in second position on the Australian Netball League ladder three points behind the Fury.

Having won six of their past seven games the Canberra GIANTS have a chance to close the gap on the Fury.

“This week’s series against the Fury will be a real test but heading into the finals its one that I want the players to embrace,” Canberra GIANTS co-coach Maria Lynch said.

“The Fury have been the benchmark of the competition for a number of years now and have plenty of quality players.”

“But so do we and we’ve shown over the past seven weeks the quality of netball we can play.”

“I don’t want us to go away from what’s worked for us and that’s our trust in each other and our commitment to every contest.”

The Fury have won the past four championships and are the most successful club in the ANL winning seven of nine titles.

Game one will be played at the Hisense Arena on Saturday (5pm), while game two will take place the State Netball and Hockey Centre on Sunday (12pm).
