Battle of the high-flyers in round eight

NETBALL: After a week off the Tweed Netball Association returns to the court for round eight of the Division One season.

Kingscliff Avatars will be aiming to retain their spot on top of the ladder, when they face Sharpshooters Sharpies in a top-four showdown.

TNA president Helen Rigney said there will be plenty of interest in this match-up.

"Avatars are coming off a tough 40-all draw in round seven against the Wildcat Bobcats and the Sharpies had a close encounter with the Kingscliff Jetsons to come away with a hard fought win 50-47,” she said.

"Both teams have had the week off so they will be refreshed and ready for a good competitive game.”

This game will begin at 12.30pm this afternoon on court nine at Arkinstall Park.
