The Northern Inland Academy of Sport team performed well in their first game but caused quite the confusion as they were dressed in Illawarra colours.
Head coach of the Northern Inland Academy of Sport, Kirsty Fuller said this morning was a bit of a saga.
“We woke up this morning to get dressed and there were no uniforms to be found,” she said.
“Luckily Illawarra was friendly enough to lend us their uniform for the day but we should have ours back tomorrow.”
The netball games are proving to be great entertainment full of action and competitive flare.
