I stand here today proudly wearing my Victorian navy blue and my Vixens' scarf. There is much excitement about a rugby league match happening tonight, but the real state-on-state action will happen in Melbourne on Sunday. Melbourne Vixens, led by the great Bianca Chatfield, will face off against Queensland Firebirds, led by Laura Geitz, in the ANZ Championship netball grand final. I wish both teams all the best in what will be a great display of Aussie netball. Members might like to note that the Australian clubs have dispensed with the clubs from across the ditch to create this Aussie final. I wish both teams all the best, but will be giving my considerable verbal support to the Vixens to bring home the trophy and the Victorian bragging rights. I cannot think of a better way for our Aussie captain Laura Geitz and vice captain Bianca Chatfield to prepare for the Commonwealth Games, where they will join forces to fend off those Kiwis. Go Vixens!
