The national league's scheduled game this afternoon at 4.10pm between the Magic and the Southern Steel has been postponed under the league's Covid-19 match postponement policy.

Tomorrow afternoon's game between the Magic and the Northern Stars at 4.10pm will also be played at a later date.

League officials will release new dates when they become available.

That leaves fans without any national league action this weekend, however Monday night's game between Te Wānanga o Raukawa Pulse and the Southern Steel will be played as scheduled at 7.15pm at TSB Bank Arena in Wellington.
