Team Bath are hoping to get back to their best this weekend by winning the netball Super League for the first time since 2013.

They're the most succesful team in Super League history - but were fortunate to make the final four after a run of losses in the middle of the season.

Team Bath spent most of their training session talking tactics - one of their last before a weekend that will put the season's mental and physical fitness to the test.

Coach Anna Stembridge says the team has matured over the season.

Team Bath's season certainly ended better than it began. Seven successive wins, ending with one against Manchester Thunder, helped them finish fourth in the Super League.

If they keep up their performance on Saturday, and beat Loughborough Lightening - who finished top of the league - Team Bath's sixth superleague title will be in reach. And it'll be the fourth win for captain Eboni Beckford-Chambers.

For 19 year old Imogen Allison, the pressures on. She'll be experiencing the final four for the first time.

I'm not nervous. It's more excitement, obviously because I haven't been there before and the whole team are just really wanting to go and just show everyone what we can do.
