It’s not often Avenel is called on to do its arch-rival a favour but that is exactly what the Swans A-grade netball side did on Saturday — not that they probably minded.

Avenel’s excellent season continued with a 50-40 win over Murchison that effectively knocked the Grasshoppers out of finals contention and sealed Nagambie’s spot.

Avenel will go into that game favourites, despite blowing a big lead to settle for a draw the first time around.
