Mvula’s Manchester Thunder are third on the table with 39 points from 16 matches while Vinkhumbo’s Strathclyde Sirens lie sixth with 26 points from the same number of matches.

Thunder return to action on Saturday against Severn Stars whereas Sirens will take on Team Bath.

At the time of signing her for the 2021 season, technical director Karen Atkinson said securing Towera’s services was fantastic for the squad.

“Towera had an impressive start to the 2020 season for Stars. She is athletic and a natural ball winner,” Atkinson said.
