Rainbow Paints Southern Region Netball League general secretary, Annie Hanjahanja has disclosed that the league will be on a three-week break after having finished its first round.
According to Hanjahanja said the second round is slated to October 1 and they expect every team to use this break to access their squad.
“They need to do a thorough analysis and find solutions to their problems. They must come up with ways of improving their performance,” she said.
However, She has also hailed the teams in first round for their good performances.
“It has been a successful first round. We saw teams such as Prison Sisters, Chilomoni Sisters, Alliance Capital Stars and Shizaella putting up good performances,” she said.
“However, the most improved team was Thunder Queens. In recent seasons, they used to lose to Tigresses and Kukoma Diamonds by huge margins. But during this season’s first round games, their performance was outstanding such that they lost by narrow margins to both teams.”
Meanwhile, Tigresses survived a scare when they struggled to beat revamped Thunder Queens 28-23 in a league match at Blantyre Youth Centre last Saturday.
Tigresses, who are the defending champions, have wrapped up the first round with 24 points from nine games.
