Firebirds break T-birds netball record

NZN 23/04/2016

Queensland Firebirds have broken the trans-Tasman netball league record for consecutive victories with a 58-46 win over Adelaide Thunderbirds.

The winless Thunderbirds made a strong comeback in their round four match in Adelaide on Saturday but couldn't stop the reigning champions registering their 17th consecutive win.

This beats the mark set by the Thunderbirds across seasons 2013 and 2014.

Firebirds continued to throw the ball away during the first half and were kept on their toes by an enthusiastic and stronger than expected opponent.

But they were too strong for the bottom-placed Adelaide and surged ahead to claim the win and move to the top of the Australian conference standings.
