Despite the Collingwood Magpies getting the better of the Queensland Firebirds, Harvey’s Donnell Wallam has put in another solid effort within the goal circle.

As the Suncorp Super Netball heads towards the finals, Wallam once again started in goal shooter for the Firebirds during Sunday’s match against the Magpies.
