I often wonder if Thwaites would have stuck around for Aus if she was really given a crack at the starting bib, but she’s such a team player I’m not sure if she would have. We’ll probably never know now anyway. I wonder if McKinnis does become coach whether she could be talked back into it, I think COVID has really changed a lot of players’ perspectives.
Bassett has a three-year contract, Austin and Harten have two-year contracts. Hard to see all three remaining next year, but again it seems like players aren’t really going to move around so much because of COVID.
