The grand final rematch will see the Giants coming out looking for redemption, after the Sunshine Coast made history in the inaugural grand final in 2017.
But this time the Giants won’t have to contend with evergreen Kiwi midcourter superstar Laura Langman, who has chosen to take a break from the sport.
Although the Giants will be buoyed by the return of veteran Kim Green, who ruptured her ACL in Round 5 last season, as well as defender Kristiana Manu’a, who also missed 2017 with an ACL; We can’t wait to see if the team changes will be enough to stop Lightning, who’ve retained the majority of their title-winning squad.
Lightning captain Geva Mentor said they knew they would be a target this year.
“Everyone will be after our scalp as reigning premiers but there are other teams that are a threat like Vixens and West Coast Fever with Jhaniele Fowler that will make it a really tough competition,” she said.
