Thunder to play Mavericks in round seven of Superleague

Manchester Thunder play Hertfordshire Mavericks in round seven of the Superleague, in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

The clash is expected to be an entertaining one, with both sides looking to cement a spot in the play-off places, even at this early stage of the season. Thunder welcome Mavericks after playing them twice at home last season, with the original encounter abandoned at the end of the third quarter due to a leaking roof.

The Black and Yellows saw-off Mavericks in the rearranged fixture at the Thunderdome and the visitors will be looking to avenge that defeat on Monday night. And there is no better way to do it than in front of the Sky Sports cameras. While Thunder are on the hunt for their fifth win on the bounce, Mavericks will be looking for an upturn in form following defeat to Loughborough Lightning last time out.

It’s set to be a thrilling encounter in a new-look Superleague, which is shaping up to be one of the most closely contested in its history.

The match will be live on Sky Sports Mix from 7.15pm, with the first centre pass at 7.30pm.
