A year since landing the Final’s MVP award in Australia’s Suncorp Netball Super League, Trinidad and Tobago international Samantha Wallace will see action on Sunday with the start of the Covid-19 affected 2020 season,
The season actually opens tomorrow and a day later, Wallace’s reigning champion NSW Swifts will take on the Adelaide Thunderbirds, the team many are tipping to surprise everyone in 2020.
The already stacked Swifties will welcome back their captain, Maddy Proud, who missed the majority of the 2019 season after she ruptured her ACL. The Swifts boast a bevy of Australia internationals and a strong a midcourt that includes Proud, Paige Hadley and Nat Haythornthwaite.
Added to that is the crazy talented shooting circle of Helen Housby and Sam Wallace, and the exciting young defence of Sarah Klau and Maddy Turner.
But the Thunderbirds are also expected to be formidable.
New recruit Lenise Potgieter could be just what the doctor ordered up forward and the return of goal defence Layla Guscoth immediately transforms Adelaide’s defensive circle into one of the league’s best.
