I enjoyed watching the movement that Philip brought to the game. Was much needed and paid off. Would like to see her get a start next test. Not sure why people think Philip is about to retire she is the same age as Scherian and she just debuted!
Scherian is ahead of Hadley now. Not sure Hadley has taken her return to the Diamonds with two hands. The WA / C position (to partner Watson) is a problem and if they return well from their ACLs Browne and Proud will probably come in.
For the next test I would leave Turner in and drop Price out. Both Brazill and Price aren’t needed and Brazill was the stronger.
Bruce was phenomenal and deserved MVP. Has her starting bib back. Klau is a great GK but is not a GD. Not sure it’s that fair to play her there where she is exposed.
Points to Watson for running Langman ragged. Langman looked exhausted, I’ve never seen her like that!
Sounness made a huge difference for NZ and expect we will see more of her in the next tests. Burger was also very strong for them.
