As it happens: Lightning v Giants Super Netball decider

NETBALL: The Sunshine Coast Lightning heads into its Super Netball grand final against Giants on Saturday night as a slight favourite with bookmakers.

If their previous two clashes are anything to go by, this will be a nail-biter.

The teams - both in their first year of existence - collide in the national league final at Brisbane Entertainment Centre on Saturday night.

The Lightning finished the regular season in second place but stunned minor premier Melbourne in the major semi final a fortnight ago to earn passage into the decider.

Meanwhile, the Sydney-based Giants were third after home-and-away fixtures but toppled Collingwood and then Melbourne in play-offs to claim a spot on the big stage.

The sides have met twice this season, sharing honours in one-goal thrillers.
