ANZ Championship, round 4:
Adelaide Thunderbirds v Melbourne Vixens
Netball SA Stadium, Sunday, 11.48am
Head-to-head: Thunderbirds 6, Vixens 12
Last time: Vixens 48 defeated Thunderbirds 39, Melbourne, rd 2, 2015
Linda Pearce predicts:
A rematch of the slightly scrappy encounter from just two weeks ago sees the winless host the unbeaten, with no compelling reason to suggest the round-two result will be reversed. No teams have met more often in league history, but the Vixens’ advantage extends even to Adelaide, and the individual match-ups continue to serve Melbourne well. Much depends on the form and confidence of T-birds shooter Carla Borrego, who was dragged after a 13/25 effort the last time, and will again attract Geva Mentor’s strong attention. Vixens by 7.
Other matches: Sunday – Magic v Tactix (Hamilton). Monday – Swifts v Fever (Sydney), Mystics v Pulse (Auckland). Bye – Firebirds, Steel.
