Collingwood’s Diamond studded netball team21/09/2016
The Collingwood Magpies netball team for the upcoming 2017 National Netball League is arguably one of the strongest club teams ever assembled. It could very competitively take on any current international team and probably beat most, if not all of them.
Boasting five Diamonds players in Sharni Layton, Caitlin Thwaites, Madi Robinson, Kim Ravaillion and April Brandley and with all other players having ANZ Championship experience, it’s an elite playing roster right from day one.
23-year-old defender Micaela Wilson is the only member of the squad who didn’t play in the ANZ Championship last season, but she has previous experience with the Vixens and the Swifts and she’s one of the great up and coming talents of Australian netball.
Already being referred to as the ‘Magpies Super Team’, it’s hard to see which of the other seven teams in the inaugural National Netball League will be able to match it with them.
