GALLERY: TRAINING IN TASMANIA

Tiarne Swersky - 29 March, 2018

The Magpies landed in Launceston on Wednesday and headed to The Silverdome for a captain's run ahead their opening match against Northern Ireland in the Tasmanian Netball Invitation Series on Thursday evening.

With Madi Robinson off on Diamonds duties - as well as April Brandley, Caitlin Thwaites and Kim Ravaillion - vice captain Shae Brown stepped in as acting captain and led the Pies through a light session on court.

You can't wipe the smile of Ash Brazill's face when she's in Tassie.

Matilda Garrett kicks off the passing drill.

Sharni Lambden tries to keep up with a speedy Shae Brown. 

A master of evasion, Brown doubles back on Lambden to get open.

The future: Matilda Garrett keeps goaler Sam Gooden in check.

A happy defensive duo. 

Meanwhile, Sharni Layton works one on one with Tassie Magpie, Alex Vinen.

Listen up, it's your captain talking.

After training, it's all about our Tassie Magpie fans. 

Hey guys, what's so funny? Layton, Garrett and Brazill share a laugh.
