Video: Steel's Jamaican Superwoman destroys Stars' defence with aerial attack

The Southern Steel have continued their unbeaten record after thrashing the Northern Stars 73-51 last night.

The Stars tried to apply pressure to the Steel midcourt but couldn't sustain it as costly turnovers led to an early deficit of nine goals after the first quarter.

Jamaican shooter dominated the match once again as she missed just one of her 46 attempts on the night.

The Steel move back to the top of the competition’s ladder ahead of their double header against the Mystics and Pulse this weekend.

Mainland Tactix coach quits after horrendous start to netball's ANZ Championship

Mainland Tactix netball coach Sue Hawkins has quit her position effective immediately, after the side's poor start to the new ANZ Championship.

Hawkins' departure comes in the wake of the 90-41 loss to the Southern Steel in Christchurch last week. 

The Tactix boast the worst record in the competition this season, having lost all five of their opening matches, the only side without a win.

"Moving forward as a professional coach, there is a time when you have to step aside in the interest of the team," Hawkins said.

"I have enjoyed my time with the Tactix and wish them all the best for the rest of the season."

Assistant coach Marianne Delaney-Hoshek will take over the role for the rest of the season.
