Cayla's Court Friday November 13
Join me each week of the WNBL season for Cayla’s Court where I bring you all the courtside action including battles to look out for, players to watch and behind the scenes goss.
We kicked off the season with a bang on Wednesday and you can expect an exciting end to round one this weekend.
This season’s condensed format is sure to bring new and exciting challenges for players, including me.
We are all out of our comfort zone, we are all travelling and playing on unfamiliar away courts with less recovery time between matches.
These first few rounds will definitely be a tester for teams and a good way for fans to see what players can really do.
Watch the action courtside or on Foxtel, Kayo or free to air partner, the ABC and join me back here next week for all the action from round two.
Sat November 14
2pm - Townsville Bendigo Spirit vs Sydney Uni Flames game: This will be a really good game. Bendigo bring a lot of youth and energy and Sydney have added some really great veterans to their team. Watch out for a match-up between Bendigo’s Carley Ernst and Sydney’s Lauren Scherf. Both are bigs who can shoot the three and have nice inside touch.
4pm - Townsville Melbourne Boomers vs Southside Flyers: Expect big things from this match as Opals players in both teams go head to head and former Boomer Liz Cambage joins the Flyers fold matching up against her old team.
Sunday November 15
2pm Townsville - Southside Flyers vs Sydney Uni Flames: Both teams have really great veterans and it will just come down to how sharp the Flyers can be on offence and how well Sydney can shut them down.
5pm Mackay - Perth Lynx vs Adelaide Lightning: Expect a healthy battle from these two sides. Perth is a solid team. Darcee Garbin is back from the Townsville Fire after five seasons and Adelaide are always really well structured under coach Chris Lucas.
7pm Mackay - UC Captials vs Townsville Fire: Being in Mackay, the Capitals have a slight advantage with born and bred local gal Marianna Tolo back on home turf to take on the Fire. Fans can expect another good battle sure to test both teams in the early stages of the season.
