The Queensland Firebirds earned themselves an extra life in the trans-Tasman netball league playoffs with a determined 59-55 win over the Waikato-Bay of Plenty Magic in Hamilton.

The Firebirds made it six wins on the trot to finish second and book a slot in the major semi-final away to the top-qualifying Melbourne Vixens.

The Magic finish the regular season fourth and will face the third-ranked New South Wales Swifts in Sydney, missing out on the chance of a home playoff.
