Highlights from the Vitality Netball Superleague Grand Final as Surrey Storm defeated Manchester Thunder at the Copper Box Arena.

Storm survived a late onslaught by Thunder to successfully defend their title 55-53.

Surrey had comfortably led their rivals throughout a fast-paced encounter until the final quarter when Dan Ryan’s side staged a remarkable comeback.

The 2014 winners reduced the deficit to just one goal with less than 30 seconds remaining.

But Storm cleverly maintained ball retention and it was left to Goal Attack queen Rachel Dunn to make absolutely sure of victory as they made it back-to-back titles.

With Thunder down by 13 goals at one stage in the contest it was left to the brilliance of Helen Housby and substitute Kathryn Turner to turn things around in dramatic fashion during a thrilling final quarter.

Player of the match Pamela Cookey led by example, despite suffering from cramp, to calm Storm nerves and it was left to Dunn to get the job done on the final buzzer.
