Thunder suffer second defeat in a row at Super Ten
Manchester Thunder suffered their second defeat in a row at the hands of Surrey Storm at Super Ten in Birmingham.
Playing in front of a vocal sold-out crowd at the Genting Arena, Thunder went toe-to-toe with the reigning champions for most of the game but lost their way in the final quarter.
The Black and Yellows were leading at the end of the opening period but that implosion in the final quarter proved costly and Storm surged to a 58-48 win. It has been a frustrating start to the season for Thunder, with two games and two losses in this new-look Superleague. But they again played with plenty of passion, skill and composure and the final scoreline today does not reflect their performance. And coach Karen Greig remains bullish that her side can turn their fortunes around, starting with their home game with Scottish Sirens next weekend. Click Here to read the full press release

Manchester Thunder have fallen to a 59-45 defeat to Loughborough Lightning in the opening game of the 2017 Vitality Superleague season.
The Black and Yellows started strongly but Lightning gradually grew into the game, as Thunder's resilience wavered. It was an uncharacteristically inconsistent performance from the Black and Yellows and they will likely need to up their game if they are to beat defending champions Surrey Storm at Super Ten in Birmingham next week
