PREVIEW: Fitness levels praised ahead of Team Bath clash


Head Coach Mel Mansfield has praised the fitness levels of her Wasps Netball players ahead of their trip to Team Bath on Friday.


The league leaders will play their second game in five days when they take on Team Bath on Friday 22 February (centre-pass 7.30pm).


Wasps took all three points when they travelled to Cardiff on Monday night but Mansfield revealed she had planned for the quick four-day turnaround before facing Celtic Dragons.


“We have been looking at these games as eight quarters, rather than two four-quarter matches,” said Mansfield.


“Before playing Dragons we were very conscious of the short gap before we play Team Bath and we have worked hard to ensure the team goes into Friday’s game as fresh as possible.


“It is tough to have two games close together but these girls are tough, they are elite athletes and will be at full strength against Team Bath.


“All 12 of our squad had court-time in the last fixture and we will have a full squad available again, with no injury concerns.
