    Very little time for netball this last week, sigh, life gets in the way.

    Lots to think about and comment on but it’s all over now.

    My parting thought: England lost the Cup in the hours after their win over Australia in the pool game. When the coach (labelling the Australians as a group of star individuals, but not as strong a team as England) and players (Helen Housby saying England were fitter and stronger) come out saying things like that it’s either hubris or trash talking (and they are scared). They underestimated the Diamonds AND gave the Diamonds extra incentive. The Diamonds showed who was fitter and smarter; I’ve never seen the Diamonds play so patiently (through the entire tournament) working the ball to the goal and that takes fitness and teamwork.
