Yeah it’s obviously such a disappointing way for Aiken to potentially go out, but I think it was the right decision. Romelda hasn’t been the force she once was for a while now (even if she did improve again towards the end of 2020 and the beginning of 2021). Letting Dwan go because of not allowing the Bueta/Dwan connection flourish would have been a lesson for the Firebirds, and I think keeping Wallam is proof that they want to allow combinations and raw talents to grow.
It’s happening more and more that legends aren’t getting contracts at the end of their careers. Bassett, now Aiken. It just shows how competitive SSN is. It’s a good sign of the quality of international netball, it’s never been this high before.
