Austin is not stuck on the bench/out of position because of the import rule, it’s because of her unwillingness to move. Jo Harten is the Giant’s only import and there is no way SSN is going to have absolutely no imports. There are also plenty of teams (Firebirds, Fever, Thunderbirds, Magpies come to mind) where she would almost certainly be starting 7. The only upcoming Diamonds prospect who I really think has been a victim of the rule is Garbin, and even then I think playing with Housby and Wallace has helped her game so much and she wouldn’t be the player she is if it wasn’t for them.
