The previous years triple be-header was hosted by Nelson’s “Sirens of Smash” where Dunedin took the title home with a final score of “180-98”. Gallow Lasses captain Nicki Noxious says, “Since taking out the title and trophy in 2012, we have been training hard and stepping up game play to ensure “Lady Luck” stays in the south. We are extremely excited to be defending her in front of a home crowd in 2013.” Sirens of Smash captain Roxy Smashy Blackheart remarks “Dunedin Derby put up a fantastic battle last year, but this year we are here to win the war.” She also says her team “are hoping to bring a more strategic game to Dunedin with a more experienced team. We have a great relationship with Otautahi and Dunedin Derby, both on and off the track, but this year we are hoping to smash them both.” Otautahi captain Baddy Long Legs states “It’s a chance to take on the best of the South Island skaters. To us it’s about hard-hitting athletes using cunning skills and pure athleticism to showcase women’s flat track derby. We can’t wait to skate it out in a series of bouts for roller derby supremacy.”

Last year’s event had over 2000 people in attendance, so don’t hesitate to get in quick and secure yourself some tickets. Door sales will be offered at $20 an adult, $15 for students and $10 for children but owing to the previous years success, availability is not guaranteed.
