Both Ulster Rockets and Belfast Star are competing this weekend in the Irish Superleague. Ulster Rockets play host to Dublin-side Meteors on Saturday while Belfast Star journey to Cork to face Demons on Sunday afternoon.
Ulster Rockets vs Meteors
Ulster Rockets are due to take on Meteors this weekend in an important league fixture. The last time these two teams met, Rockets suffered a disappointing loss (54-40) and are hoping that tomorrow’s showdown in La Salle sports complex will be a different story. Meteors are a strong and talented squad with a deep bench. Hugh Kilbride, Coach of the Meteors, focuses on full-court pressure defence, which caused problems for the Rockets in the previous match-up. However, Breda Dick is confident that her women have put in the necessary work and are better prepared to deal with the high-intensity defence played by Meteors. Rockets are in their first year in the Superleague and are currently in 6th place, competing for the final playoff spot.

Although Star are amidst one of their most challenging season’s to-date, Coach Adrian Fulton believes that his players continue to work hard and learn from their experiences:
