Netball fans can look forward to an exciting week of intense competition in the highly-anticipated Telkom Netball League (TNL) 2024 Power-Week 2, set to take place at Ellis Park Arena in Johannesburg, Gauteng, from Friday, 31 May to Wednesday, 5 June. 

The final day of Power Week 1 was filled with dramatic upsets, with defenders of both divisions standing strong, teams capitalizing on errors, and scores changing hands multiple times. 

Expert coaches and selectors, including national team selector Zola Starke, have shared their insights on the matches. Starke commented on the thrilling encounter between the Gauteng Jaguars and the Gauteng Golden Fireballs, which ended in a 53-48 victory for the Jaguars. 

“Several teams will regroup, head to the drawing board, and return stronger, ready to make a comeback.”

In Division A, the Crinums currently lead the standings, just one point ahead of the Fireballs, and two points above the Jaguars, while the Baobabs have yet to register a single point and are at the bottom of the standings.

In Division B, the presence of courageous young players in all teams has resulted in thrilling matches and unpredictable outcomes. The Kingdom Stars and the Comets are tied at the top with 14 points each, while the Lillies remain at the bottom of the log.

Players such as Kamogelo Maseko of the Jaguars, Aphiwe Thusini from Kingdom Stars, Princess Kanetsi of the Comets, Entle Futshane of the Tornados, Demi-Leigh de Jager from Sonoblomo, and the Crinums duo Refiloe Nketsa and Alyssa Trahams have received multiple Player of the Match awards, and are worth keeping an eye on.

Teams are ready to come back strong in the second leg of the tournament after returning to their training camps to work on their strategies and start the games strong.
