That was a really good read! IVD retirement story is quite similar. Both players being pushed out or purely not wanted anymore.

It’s interesting what a 1 goal loss (x2) can do. Had it been a 1 goal win, I feel CBass would be still involved/wanted by netball regardless of having an injury.

IMO CBass really saved the Diamonds, and was a huge factor to all their success. When McMahon had retired, they needed a champion or a “go-to” shooter. Cox was coming to the end of her career, and was well covered by Ferns defenders. The 2011 WC was a prime example of it. Ferns defenders struggled to contain her.

I find people either loved her, or was completely not a fan (hate is too strong a word).

Hope she’s able to enjoy retirement, and find an amazing career to continue in!
