He wikitōria nui ma te Southern Steel ki runga ake o te kapa Queensland Firebirds i te rauna tekau ma tahi o ngā whakataetae ANZ. I kaha rangona ngā Firebirds i te riri o ngā Steel i te ngarohanga o ētahi o a rātou kaitākaro ki te wharanga. Ka neke whakamua te kapa Steel ki te tihi o te papa tātai ANZ i ngā piro e rua.
Nā ngā Firebird te kēmu i whakawhanake heoi kāre i roa ka eke panuku rawa ngā Steel nā whai anō te kaha mahi tahi a te kapa.
Firebirds got the ball rolling, however it wasn't long before Steel came back in leaps in bounds thanks to strong team work.
Ko tā Noeline Taurua - Kaiako, Southern Steel, "Each person at various times are under a huge amount of pressure and when we're not relying hugely on just one person to hold the whole team together so the motto for us is having a team that we can rely on each other and as a team we're working really well together and for each other."
Nā ngā hapa te kapa Firebirds whara ai i te koata tuarua. Ka whai hua ngā Steel i ngā huringam, ā nā wai nā wai ka kōkiri rawa ki runga i te papa tātai i ngā piro tekau ma rua i mua i te wehenga rua.
Hei tā Taurua, "Because of injuries especially in the defensive end, changes were made to their normal line up so to speak, which I found was interesting in regards to putting Remelda on to our Jamaican as well, which probably also came back as a negative for them."
I rere ngā tuke i te koata tuatoru, heoi tē taea ngā Firebirds ki te hoki mai. Kāore i taea te pēhea i ngā pūkenga māreikura o Te Paea Selby-Rickit me Jhaniele Fowler Reid i kōkiritira te kapa. Whā tekau ma whitu ki te toru tekau ma whitu i te wehenga.
Ko tā Taurua, "Playing against a quality side it shows areas to us that we still need to work on and the improvements that we can still make."
Ka eke panuku anō ngā Steel i te koata tuawha. Kei raro rawa ngā Firebirds e pūtu ana. Ka wikitōria ake anō ngā Steel ki mau tonu ki tō rātou rekoata toa. Ono tekau ma ono ki te rima tekau ma tahi.
