Garbin plays one amazing quarter and gets selected. Bit of a joke. Certainly undermines Australia’s issues in the shooting end. Dwan has had a better year.
Eddy and Parmenter have brilliant seasons and are overlooked.
In and of itself I don’t have an issue with Parmenter not being there as I don’t think she is quite ready. Needs to work harder to shut her opponent down not just take the flashy intercept. But with Anstiss being there I don’t see how Parmenter’s and Eddy’s omissions are justified. If you do apply the argument for Parmenter that she is too heavily penalised, doesn’t do the ‘hard and ugly work’ but does the flash well that is Jenner as well so you can’t use that argument.
Very happy to see Proud.
With all of Australia’s defensive depth I think they could have selected more than 5 defenders.
