Speaking ahead of the game shooter Romelda Aiken believes both her and Gretel Tippett hold the key to helping their side close out close matches.
The Firebirds finals hopes are in the balance, as they cling to fourth position and play second place Giants Netball tomorrow afternoon. The Giants only sit three points behind ladder leaders West Coast Fever.

“We’re not closing out the games as strongly as we used to and that comes down to the experience in our midcourt," said Aiken.

"We’ve been playing really good netball, we just need to work on those little finishes throughout the ending of the quarters," she said.
While the pair are the second highest goal shooter/goal attack combination in the competition with 591 goals this season, they aren't afraid to have honest conversations about their performances.

“We are very hard on ourselves and I’m not scared to tell her she’s playing like rubbish and she’s not scared to tell me to step up my game,” said Aiken.

Tippett and Akien sit behind Melbourne Vixens duo Mwai Kumwenda and Tegan Phillip and West Coast’s Jhaniele Fowler and Nat Medhurst.
