I’m not too worried about GA for Diamonds. Austin can do it. She has done it. Needs consistency. In saying that even today her work rate through court is immense. She was the play maker down there and gets out and contests the CP. when Koenen and Moloney were on Watson had to do everything by herself. It was ridiculous they left it for so long. If they wanted Koenen in Ga then why not try JLP in C or move Watson to C and have Austin in WA?
Anyway Austin in terms of craft is a long way ahead of the other Aussie options. Longer term Dwyer will get there. Such a sweet shot but has to work on her craft and work rate to offer what Austin does in that regard. Batcheldor will be back next year and will get to form a connection with Watson at SSN level.
With JLP and Aryang having WD covered I’d like to see Diamonds bring a more attacking midcourter in to that 4th spot than Moloney or Parmenter.
