Splice Construction Magic Season Preview

The Splice Construction Magic team are gearing up for the 2019 ANZ Premiership, which sees them host the opening Super Sunday on Sunday 24 February at Claudelands Arena, Hamilton.

Head coach Amigene Metcalfe is looking forward to the competition beginning.

“Preseason training and games have been going really well. The girls have been working hard and it is certainly paying off”.

Metcalfe, who was Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic’s first listed player when the franchise started in 1998, was happy to be able to stay connected with the team in the Head Coach role, after stepping up from the Assistant Coach position she held last year.

“This years ANZ Premiership is going to be another toughly fought competition, all six teams are full of up and coming talent, making for a very exciting competition” she said. “We are lucky to have the likes of our returning players in Casey Kopua and Sam Sinclair leading from the front again, as well as some brand-new faces joining us”.

Metcalfe will be joined this season by Assistant Coach Mary-Jane Araroa, who was the Head Coach of the Waikato Bay of Plenty Beko Netball League team last year who finished runners up in the national competition.

Hamilton will fill up this weekend with all six teams from the ANZ Premiership playing under one roof in the opening Super Sunday of the 2019 ANZP. The Magic will play the Mainland Tactix at 4pm in a bid to win their opening game of the season.

Tickets are still available, and one ticket will get you into all three games which are being played at 2pm, 4pm and 6pm.

Head over to now to secure your seats and get along to watch some fast and furious action on and off the court.
