The full fixture was released today as promised. The marquee games to look for include the Round 1 derby between the NSW Swifts and GIANTS Netball, a Round 2 Grand Final rematch between West Coast Fever and Sunshine Coast Lightning, the Round 3 showdown between Queensland Firebirds and the Lightning, as well as the local derby between Melbourne Vixens and Collingwood Magpies being held on Queen’s Birthday for the first time (the match will start at midday AEST before the AFL clash between the Demons and the Pies at 3.20pm). Matches will also be played in regional areas for the first time, in Bendigo and Launceston. More details can be found here
