Fusion notch first season win

With Netball Australia.

The Queensland Fusion have won their first match of the 2016 ANL season, defeating the Western Sting 51-41 in Perth on Sunday.

The win came after a hard-fought loss to the Sting the night before, where the Fusion went down 49-47 to an opposition bolstered by four West Coast Fever players.

However it was a different story in the turnaround fixture. The Sting left out their ANZ Championship players, while the Fusion called on several Firebirds as they dominated proceedings and won 51–41.
