Team Bath’s 54-34 away win over Hertfordshire Mavericks on Friday meant Team Bath ended Phase One of the Superleague at the top of the table.

The Superleague is now taking a break to allow for the senior England team to tour Jamaica and the under-21s to plaNetball Superleaguey in Australia. The two tours feature no fewer than eight members of Team Bath’s Superleague squad.

But the Superleague will be back with a bang when Team Bath host Surrey Storm mid-April.

Jess Thirlby, Team Bath’s head coach, said she is relishing the return to Superleague action.

“Psychologically I think it’s important that we’ve finished top of Phase One,” she said. “It means we have overcome all but one of our opposition that we’ll face in Phase Two and we’ll face them, Surrey, in our first game at home, so we’re really looking forward to that.

“Our home crowd made a real difference to our performances and we really hope people will come out in force in Phase Two.

“We had a few players with injuries in Phase One, but most of them are now back to fitness and with eight players featuring on national tours before Phase Two, we should be match fit and raring to go!”

And she said she was pleased with Friday’s victory at Mavericks.

“I was really pleased with the result on Friday, particularly our first half performance, which was one of the best, more cohesive passages of play we have out together so far this season.

“We pulled away to 14 very quickly and that was really pleasing. In both our attack and defence we could start to see the transition of the work from training into the game with a higher number of live turnovers and some more clinical attacking play.”
