Tigresses are on the driving seat of the Rainbow Paints Southern Region Netball League with one eye open, as Kukoma Diamonds are slowly catching up to depose them on the summit table.
The Kanjedza ladies have 30 points from 11 games, while Diamonds have also 30 points but with a game in hand.
The two giants are separated on baskets, with Tigresses having an upper hand having netted 261 baskets, while Diamonds have managed to score 203 baskets.
However, Kukoma Diamonds have a chance to dislodge Tigresses on the summit table on Thursday as they have what looks like an easy fixture against Gerald Tasaukadala from 2:00pm.
Another giant which is in top form and chasing for the title is Thunder Queens. Thunder are occupying the third slot with 24 points from 10 games.
Thunder Queens captain Joana Kachilika said they will fight on until the last drop of their blood.
“We are not giving up in this fight. Our aim is to win the title and with the current form we can do it. The advantage with our squad is that we play as a team and no stars amongst us,” said the no nonsense goal defender.
Coming fourth on the log table is Alliance Capital Stars. The Mary Waya’s ladies have accumulated 24 points from 12 games.

Southern Region Netball League General Secretary Annie Hanjahanja has so far described the competition competitive and stressed there is no a small side in the Rainbow Paints.

She however, lamented that this week there are games in the Rainbow Paints because BYC will host Presidential Finals in Urban from Saturday to Sunday.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
