Due to the COVID-19 outbreak in Victoria, both the Vixens and the Magpies have been forced to move their round six clashes interstate.

The Suncorp Super Netball league has announced changes to the round six fixture due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation in Victoria.

Round six was meant to see both Collingwood and the Melbourne Vixens take on the West Coast Fever and Adelaide Thunderbirds respectively at John Cain Arena on Saturday.

The Magpies will now remain in Sydney and take on the Fever at Ken Rosewall Arena at the same time of Saturday at 3PM AEST, while the reigning premiers will stay in Queensland and take on the Thunderbirds at USC Stadium on the Sunshine Coast at the new time of Sunday, 5:45PM.

The Vixens match will now create a double header, with Sunshine Coast Lightning set to take on cross town rivals in the Queensland Firebirds at 3PM.
