I have no idea. When you consider how little exposure to a high performance environment McDonald has had her performances over the last two weeks have been phenomenal. Yes, she tired badly today but she was playing against Simpson. A Diamond, SSN captain and premiership winner. McDonald can also play all 3 midcourt positions so I would take her over Honey. I have found Honey a little disappointing. I know she is coming back from a major injury and is definitely the better athlete of the two but she just holds back out on court. Pulls off her drives and moves. Doesn’t command the ball. So many times today the ball should have been released to her but it wasn’t. So why aren’t her team mates giving her the ball? Of course, this isn’t necessarily Honey’s fault. McDonald has better touch on the feed. Maybe a year as a TP for Honey would be beneficial, doesn’t look confident on court.

I would have liked to have seen Sacha McDonald come on at WA at the end. Why not give her a go to see what she has to offer (even if WA would be her 2nd position behind GA).

There is a lot of hype about Mundy in Vixens circles. A bit like Allie Smith so I think we will see her at some point.
