I agree that Australia has a GA problem. Give it a year and Dwyer will have some experience under her belt, and hopefully soon we’ll see Dwan and Batcheldor, but that game showed how little preparation we had for Wood’s retirement.
Austin would not shoot and that meant Garbin was being doubled on… and they gave her the ball anyway? And they’ve picked up NZ’s habit of just dropping the ball, albeit only in the shooting circle.
Very frustrating performance for both teams’ supporters! But congrats to NZ, especially Burger and Jury on fantastic performances. Heffernan was also really solid and I liked what Souness bought, even if she can be expensive.
