Brisbane Breakers handler John McNaughton admits his side was “shocked” by Perth in round one of the AUL, but there will be no slow start in their match against Sydney this week.
Perth Power have shocked the Brisbane Breakers with a clean sweep victory of all three sets in their AUL opener.

When former Sydney Suns coach Yew Eng Ng decided to take up a co-coaching role with Tamara Davis at the Brisbane Breakers this year, they wanted to build a roster that could compete for the Australian Ultimate League title.
