In-form Pukkas are team to beat in Super Sixes
Leicester are determined to keep their hands on the Maxifuel Super Sixes trophy.
After victory over Reading in last year's final at Wembley, the Pukkas have made a great start to their defence of the crown.
They were in great form during the group stages, at Bromsgrove School, winning seven and drawing one in their eight-match programme.
It meant they topped the Premier Division and are surely the team to beat when the semi-finals take place tomorrow at Kettering Arena.

Leicester take on old rivals Reading at 6pm while Sutton Coldfield and Bowdon Hightown will do battle in the second last-four showdown at 7.30pm.
The Pukkas are raring to go, and manager Sue Holwell said: "We're pretty confident, especially if we play like we did last weekend. If we make it to the final I really don't mind who we play – we've beaten them all in the league already.
"Overall, we're a better team than we were last year. We have a greater depth in the squad, which means that we can afford to give players a rest and not weaken the standard of our play.
"And we have another year's experience of the indoor game under our belts."
Sutton Coldfield also reached the semi-finals last year, and captain Vicky Woolford said: "Having played Leicester last year at this stage, we were quite pleased not to get them again for psychological reasons.
"If we want to win this, however, we may have to play them at some point.
"Last year was a bit more of a shock because our main priority was staying in the league, but this year we have had more expectation."
Sutton Coldfield beat Bowdon Hightown in their opening match of this year's Premier Division campaign, and Woolford added: "That was the first time we've beaten Bowdon Hightown indoors.
"It gave us a big confidence boost, both for the league and now for the semi-finals."
If Leicester can reach the final, at Wembley Arena on Sunday, January 27, it will put them in good heart for their European Indoor Championship campaign next month, in Vienna.
