On Sunday afternoon at the University of Otago Oval, the Otago Volts will take on the Wellington Firebirds in match 18 of the 2022–23 Super Smash. With eight points from their first five games, the Volts are in fifth place. The Firebirds lead the league with 14 points from five games. Stay tuned for our preview of this match. At 14:40 local time, the game begins in Otago.

The Otago Volts will be motivated by the possibility of defeating the team at the top of the table because they have match-winners on their roster. They have a good chance of causing issues for the Firebirds on their home field.

The Wellington Firebirds started off well in the 2022-23 Super Smash, but bad weather and a loss have slowed them down. If they want to win this match again, they will need to perform at their absolute best.
