Julie F connections to NZ, doesn’t surprise me that she has a few NZ players in her mix.
But seeing how Akle has just been apart of the Ferns tour, and has now recruited a few NZ players (albeit TPs) makes me wonder.
The surprising one, as others have mentioned, is Hume. Don’t get me wrong, I quite like her and think she has so much more to offer. But there’s so much more talent in Aus who is probably just as talented if not more than her.
I do wonder at what stage did Crampton and Giants had a conversation? To me it seems only recently, because I feel like if they had spoken earlier (like right at the beginning) she may have gotten a contract over Chelsea Pitman.
