Clarke : Wasps learnt from losses


Wasps Netball’s Jade Clarke says the last two weeks have been a learning period and the experience will benefit the reigning champions later in the season.

“We are looking at each game and seeing what we need to improve – everyone is raring to go on Sunday. The goal remains to make it into the play-offs and then you’ve got yourself in the mix for the title.”

London Pulse come into the fixture bottom of the table and without a win since the first round of games.

Wasps came out on top when the two sides last met, winning 61-50 back in round three at the Copper Box Arena – but the Black and Golds did trail early after a fast start from the London-based side.

Clarke added: “It will be really nice to be back in-front of our home crowd. We haven’t played Pulse since round two. They have been pushing teams all season and it will be a good test for us back at home.

“This season’s Superleague is the most competitive I’ve seen it in my career. Any team can beat the other on the day and you have to be at the best.

“Having this kind of competition in the league is perfect in the lead up to the Netball World Cup later this year in Liverpool. Our league is so strong at the moment and every game is played at high intensity.

“I’m sure it will be an exciting game against Pulse and we’re looking forward to the challenge.”
