The Southern Steel will be hoping to package up the form it produced at home and take that with it on a tough road trip to Auckland to play the table-topping Stars on Sunday.

The Steel impressed in front of its home crowd last Sunday in its 56-52 win over the Pulse, and showed it could hold its nerve when the screws were tightened.

Captain Shannon Saunders said it was good to get so much of the squad on court early in the season.

“Everyone’s stepping up, getting their opportunities and really putting their hand up and that’s creating a good headache for [coach] Reinga [Bloxham],” she said.

The Stars were given their first real fright against the Magic last week, but still achieved a club first in stretching their winning run to three straight games.
