SINGAPORE- League leaders Magic Marlins endured a disappointing start to the second phase of the 2016 Netball Super League (NSL) season, losing 37-50 to the Tiger Sharks.
However, their international player Sophie Komba believes that their team are capable of bouncing back and fighting for the title.
"We are going to be champions," said Komba, who has over 30 international caps for Tanzania. "I have a good team and some of my teammates are in the national team.
"If we can play well and avoid the mistakes we made last week, we are going to win."
The 30-year-old is one of six international players who have joined the six NSL teams for Round 2, which kicked off last Sunday (April 17) at the Jurong East Sports Hall.
The other five are Hildah Binang (Tiger Sharks), Alesi Waqa (Mission Mannas), Letang Mogotlhwane (Sneakers Stingrays), Lilian Sylidion (Blaze Dolphins) and Irene Kanile (Fier Orcas).
Defending champions Sneakers Stingrays currently lie joint-second in the table with the Tiger Sharks on 13 points, two points behind the Marlins.
The final game of Round 2 takes place on May 1, followed by the semi-finals on May 7 and the final on May 14, all played at the Toa Payoh Sports Hall.
