    It’ll be interesting to see who Steel can recruit next season, and who they’ll go after – the smaller population in their catchment can’t help that process. There are several players who would definitely get more court time at Steel and could boost their ranks – but may not be willing to move for that opportunity how Metuarau, Tui and Burley did.

    It sounds like Fisher’s prospects of rehabbing and regaining fitness for that level aren’t great, which is a pity – I think they’d be happy to keep her otherwise. Making some assumptions, Pulse won’t be able to offer full games to both Salmon and Walmsley next season, likewise Tactix don’t have room for both Dunn and Bird. Any of those 4 would be a great pickup for Steel.

    They need a more influential circle defender too. Strydom has been ok, but not a game winner. Dunedin has a good uni with med school, which could suit Catherine Hall. Ocean Maihi or Kate Lloyd could be tempted by more court time too. Otherwise, unless they can pull of a coup, their best option might be to look for the best out of whoever hasn’t got an SSN contract.
