CAMPAIGN STARTS SUNDAY: NSW Swifts’ T&T international, Samantha Wallace, left.

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.
