The problem for Wallam is she’s never been tested against top class opposition. The best GK she has played against in a serious match was EUB (and I guess you could say Bruce in that pre-season match). Everyone speaks about how dominant she was in VNSL but it’s just not the same level, especially in the defensive end. Coaches aren’t going to recruit someone who is a GS specialist over some of the best international shooters in the world when that player has never been tested against Mentor/Sterling/Klau. The third shooter spot in SSN teams is nearly always a GS/GA swing, so she will either have to become more flexible or simply become a better GS.

There are now 65 Australians in SSN, 15 imports. It’s difficult to argue that imports are causing issues for the league at this point. The average is less than two per team which is almost the ANZC level.
