    Folau hasn’t announced her retirement. Maybe she is playing in January.

    The post game tears would suggest otherwise

    Langman says the new benchmarks are’so exciting for those of you who get to continue’. And then says about Folau that ‘we will support you with whatever decision you make’, so looks like Folau is still undecided to some capacity.

    Brilliant, gracious acknowledgments from Captain Fantastic Langman

    Polite WA crowds – no booing of the umpires, and reasonably warm applause for the PM, who had the wisdom to not say anything

    Langman, you legend!
    Well obviously this is the last match for Folau against Aus.
    I think she will step away after today, but there is no official word yet so…….

    Interesting, Nadine Wilson thinks this was Folau’s last game suggesting she wants to walk away quietly.

    Seems so. What a legend. The things I’ve seen Maria been called on here over the years, and yet she’s easily the face of the modern game.

    Diamonds produced some quality netball. Deserved the win. Ferns, not their day today, BUT the positive I take out of this series, is a tied 2-2 result, something NZ have struggled to do.

    I really enjoyed reading the http://www.stuff.co.nz article about Maria posted earlier on this thread. I loved the part about how she floats around the court, disguising how fast she is. I never understood people on here saying she was too slow. And the part about how popular she is with team mates, opponents and fans even tho’ she can say some odd things when a mike is in front of her. Anyways, great article. If she goes, which I expect she will either now or in January given she didn’t re-sign with the T’Birds, I for one will be sad and miss her smile and her swish……

    The fact Bassett said nothing about Thwaites’ retirement and Langman did speaks VOLUMES.

    I was also at the match and there was a lot of hugs and tears for Folau. Definitely thought there would be a retirement announcement but she might be doing it later on…

    I haven’t watched the game yet, but just scrolled through the thread. Interesting that Aust penalty count lower than NZ for the first time – that must surely have had something to do with the win??

    Folau may not be as popular (with the public) as the other fossils but I will be sad to see her retire from the game. Her shot is sublime and when it’s on she cannot be stopped.

    Not Langman’s best game but that still puts her in front of most players on court. I wish she was our captain – I love her speeches.

    Great game for the Diamonds and an important win to give them a boost after a tough year.
    I think that is the best game I have seen CBass play all year. Her and Tippett looked liked they are starting to gel.
    So stoked to see Maddy make her
    debut and Braz was a much deserved MVP.
    Lastly, there is Thwaites final game in the green and gold. She is one of my time favourite players. She comes across as such a genuine and humble person. She said on Sharelle and Bianca’s podcast that when she took the court in Sydney she heard the crowd go wild and thought it was for her until she realised that Klau has also taken the court. I have no doubt the crowd was cheering just as much for her as they were Klau such is her popularity.

    I’d say that was Maria’s last game for the Ferns. Thanks for your 150 games, I haven’t been a fan of Maria, but since coach T took over, her game has changed, and I have come to like her a bit.

    Oh and another thing the umpiring was shit.
