Head Coach Sam Bird goes into the fixture with a full squad following Chelsea Pitman’s return from illness.

“It’s been a fantastic start to the season with 3 wins from the first 3 rounds.  We have been able to work on lots of different combinations and work out some of the early season kinks.  The whole squad is ready to do what it takes to get the win against Thunder in front of a packed CopperBox Arena crowd “

The Opposition…

Manchester Thunder were undefeated champions in the 2022 season but have made some changes to their roster for 2023

With 2 rounds under their belt in 2023, they have taken a win against Celtic Dragons and a loss to Surrey Storm.  They currently sit 4th in the table with 3 points.  Manchester Thunder will undoubtedly be looking to bounce back from their loss to Surrey with a win against Pulse on Saturday.
