It’s a bit of a lacklustre start to the year for the Firebirds. A draw at home, following the loss in the first round sees them in the bottom half of the ladder.

The model had the Lightning as slight favourites, yet they blew the Fever away with a 25 point win. Model was bang on for the Swifts and Vixens, with large wins by those two teams as well. Maybe we’re heading towards the calibration already?
