Thunder finish Third in Netball Superleague 2015
Manchester Thunder powered to victory over Yorkshire Jets to secure third place in the netball Superleague.

Thunder had come into this play-off a wounded beast, after seeing their hopes of retaining their Superleague title ripped to shreds following a loss to Hertfordshire Mavericks seven days earlier. And to beat their derby rivals in front of a sold-out Copperbox showed guts and was a testament to the character and spirit in what is actually Superleague's youngest squad.
