The fantastic Waikato-BOP Magic netball franchise has won the Trans-Tasman netball competition title for 2012. It was the first win for a kiwi team in the five years the competition has been going. They beat the Vixens from Melbourne with a late surge in the fourth quarter. South African born veteran goal- shoot Irene van Dyk lost her mother during the week and will return to South Africa for the funeral, while the rest of the team returns to New Zealand. It was a great day for kiwi netball.
