Not sure if this helps the timeline, but the west Australian paper reports today that Vixens were advised to travel and find replacement players earlier in the week but didn’t/were unable to. Schmeetle I think you also heard this.
I take so much away from this on so many levels and supporting each side in different ways but I still stand by my comments (as a massive fever fan) that they should not have emailed each attendee/posted on social media that statement about “refusal”. Even if it was a straight-up refusal: don’t say it like that! It came across badly at a time when their image is more important than ever! I have contacted them and said a similar sentiment but I’m guessing, knowing fever, they’ll stick by their comments grr
