Yep – think of the players this team was missing, Watson, Crampton, Ekenasio, Watson, Rore, Karaka, Mes with MSB and Kayla Johnson waiting in the wings.
Note NONE of the 12 game day quad yesterday featured in the World Cup grand final, which was only two years ago. This is a very experimental squad.
However, the margin and manner of the loss is concerning. The psychological implications for the English are huge, which the Ferns would want to nip in the bud…
I haven’t seem the game but Nweke is so young and needs more time. What a baptism of fire to come up against Geva for your debut! However if the Ferns can ease her into games, then hopefully she will be up to speed come CWG/NWC time. Toeava OTOH – would rather have Poi in there.
