We caught up with defender Jane Watson ahead of Wednesday night's second Constellation Cup match, which marks our 150th Test against our trans-Tasman rivals the Australian Diamonds!

I think Weston in GK and Turner in GD. Height isn’t really necessary against the SFs. Plus Weston is horrid in the midcourt.Ian HarkinModeratorOctober 15, 2019 at 9:51 pmPost count: 1225

I just hope that if Jordan is there he has been briefed and stops referring to the World Cup held this year in London. And that he shuts up and lets Adine and Sharni do the talking. In fact why is he there at all?TrentAParticipantOctober 16, 2019 at 12:29 amPost count: 26
I’d like to see the same starting 7 for the Silver Ferns as Sunday:
Give them all some more time to gel. Especially Watson/Karaka who did a pretty good job for 35-40 minutes on Sunday. Burger was good as an impact payer for that last qtr.
If Crampton is recovered she’s a good option to use if needs be. But Saunders played very well against Brazill and in fact IMO had the better of her most of the game. And Brazill is the best WD in the Diamonds.
LA has a conundrum. Does she start with the 7 she started with on Sunday or go with the 7 who finished? IMO she’ll go with:
Lets go Silver Ferns. Going into the 2 game leg in Australia 2-0 up would be great and set up a really good tussle.NettySuperFanParticipantOctober 16, 2019 at 12:59 amPost count: 46
I think LA needs to play JLP in WD to start. I was excited to Brazill start in game 1 but honestly she didn’t have that much of an impact and I was confused as to why LA didn’t replace her, if LA’s goal was to win that game. Brazill didn’t have a bad game as such but Saunders didn’t really seem that phased by her.
My starting 7 would be:
or Turner and Klau, just to test the combo at the international stage (although I still believe Bruce is the better GK option for Australia at the moment, even if Klau has improve huge amounts this season).Netballcrazy1ParticipantOctober 16, 2019 at 1:01 amPost count: 157
I like the line-ups but if Bassett and Tippett are not working than lA NEEDS to pull the plug and put Thwaites or Phillip on. I also wouldn’t mind seeing Bruce at GD and JLP at C for a quarter just to know that if things aren’t working we have other combinations to turn to.JamesParticipantOctober 16, 2019 at 1:17 amPost count: 12
I would love to see an Aus line up of
Bench: Scherian, Brazill, Bassett, Phillip, Bruce
I think Weston on Saunders and switching on to Langman is the best option, she has the height and arms over pressure and might force a few held balls from Langman
