Giants silence Magpies in Super Netball

Jo Harten played a starring role in Giants' 63-60 win over Collingwood Magpies

The Giants have shaken off a first quarter slump to eventually finish over the top of the Collingwood Magpies, earning two bonus points in their 63-60 win on Sunday.

Giants goal attack Jo Harten continued to impress in her new position, wowing the crowd with some of her more creative passes on her way to seven assists on top of 25 goals from 28 attempts, while veteran centre Kim Green had 22 assists.

Collingwood had surprised with a win over Queensland Firebirds prior to the competition bye but the performance at Qudos Bank Arena is a speed bump after something of a resurgence for the star-studded side.

The visiting shooting pair of Caitlin Thwaites (38 from 40) and Erin Bell (22 from 26) made the most of the service when it was on offer.

However, the team was patchy and Bell made seven turnovers.
