Yeah, the calls on Mes were rubbish. She did nothing!
Often the umpires were behind play, couldn’t see the ball clearly.
It is just a shame that a massive clash had umpires who isn’t up to the speed and standard YET.
The lady from Singapore, has she umpired a Trans Tasman match before? ANZ? Suncorp? England international?
You could tell Lisa and Noels were both frustrated with calls.
It’s not a friendly game. It was a decider between the BEST 2 teams in the world.
There was one call where it was stepping NZ so Aust went to set the ball where it SHOULD have been taken but they got called for stepping while setting up. Strange.
Positives, Braz showed Lisa that she is the top WD in Aust. Should have been at Worlds. Turner is a great GD and Tippett FINALLY played a whole match. World class GA.
NZ, the fight back! Eke wasn’t training all week so that is why Mes started. Rore Folau and Karaka all played well.
It’s time to develop Souness and Poi in January. We need some better midcourt options. Crampton went missing.
Burger at GD will improve with more time. Faka Watson Jury Karaka SB to build some solid connections with Burger going forward.
Folau is best shooter in the world. Ability to shoot from anywhere and even change her game style after 150 games is so impressive.
She will be hard to replace, but Noels developed Koenen into the player she is today so she can identify and develop talent
