While another tough loss leaves the Queensland Firebirds languishing at the bottom of the Suncorp Super Netball ladder, Harvey’s Donnell Wallam has continued to put in consistent efforts on the court.

The Firebirds faced off against the Collingwood Magpies at John Cain Arena on Sunday during the fourth round of the 2023 Suncorp Super Netball season.

Although the Firebirds led from the outset, the Magpies dominated in the second half to win 69-61, leaving the Firebirds winless for another round.
