It was no surprise that the Melbourne Vixens attracted the “Dream Team” tag before the 2008 ANZ Championship, given that they included seven Australian Squad members, headed by superstar Sharelle McMahon. Their nine win-five loss record included a losing appearance in the Minor Semi-Final.

McMahon’s performance was affected by a knee injury (since treated surgically), but she still played in all of her team’s 14 games and managed to score 273 goals (81.7%) from 334 attempts, ranking her tenth among the ANZ Championship’s shooters. Goal shoot Caitlin Thwaites averaged 30 goals a game and achieved 78.7% accuracy. Natasha Chokljat, Renae Hallinan, Bianca Chatfield and Julie Prendergast all featured on the top 10 lists for key defensive statistics.

The Vixens’ biggest win was the historic opening game of the 2008 ANZ Championship, a 17-goal defeat of Central Pulse in Wellington; their biggest loss, by 13 goals to Swifts in Round 13. They had previously defeated Swifts in Round 5 by one goal, their closest win of the season. One goal was also the margin in their narrowest loss, inflicted by Steel in Round 10. The Vixens were one of two 2008 sides whose Away record (five wins) was better than at Home (four wins).
