With five members of the Silver Ferns regular starting line-up, Colourplus Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic was widely tipped to make the inaugural ANZ Championship Grand Final and did not disappoint, booking their spot after winning the minor premiership and beating the Thunderbirds in the Preliminary Final.  However, they could not beat the Swifts in three matches during the season, including the nine-goal Grand Final - Magic's biggest loss of the year. 

Magic was anchored at either end by two of the world’s best players: Irene van Dyk, who headed the 2008 ANZ Championship shooting statistics with 92.8% despite her shock switch to goal attack towards the end of the 2008 competition, and defender Casey Williams, winner of the Holden Captiva MVP award. They were complemented by the silky shooting of Maria Tutaia, and the rugged defensive work of Jodi Tod, elevated to the Silver Ferns squad during the year. Tutaia's pairing with van Dyk produced 847 goals (86.6%) from 978 attempts for Magic in 2008.

No shortage of talent and athleticism in the middle either, where Joline Henry, Lauara Langman and Amigene Metcalfe gave their opposition plenty to handle.

Magic played 16 matches in 2008, more than any other team, because they contested all three stages of the Finals Series. They won eleven, beaten by Swifts, Vixens and Steel, and established the first Championship record for the highest score (69 goals v Tactix, Round 14). Magic’s closest win was their two-goal defeat of Thunderbirds in the Preliminary Final.
