Come on Magic!
Hopefully McPhee and Latu Meafou can both fire.
Mikaere needs to work Nweke from the opening pass, and surely Fowler/Tong can stop Tui/Vui/Grapes (whoever Wilson plays)Ian HarkinModeratorJuly 27, 2020 at 5:17 pmPost count: 14665

Best quarter I’ve seen Souness play so far this season. She’s actually playing with patience with no long balls from halfway.JinxiboParticipantJuly 27, 2020 at 5:30 pmPost count: 1140
Okay wasn’t expecting that line-up. Even though I was worried about McPhee and her kneeIan HarkinModeratorJuly 27, 2020 at 5:34 pmPost count: 14665
1/4 time: 11-11
Nweke 11/13 (85%)
Grapes 0/3 (0%)
Williams 6/7 (86%)
Latu-Meafou 5/6 (83%)
Dead level after 12 minutes. High turnover rate and Mystics struggling with shooting accuracy. Toeava and Souness both dominating for their teams from WA.JinxiboParticipantJuly 27, 2020 at 5:41 pmPost count: 1140
Sulu and Karaka looking much better tonight.
Grapes!! what’s that 0 from 5 attempts.JinxiboParticipantJuly 27, 2020 at 5:42 pmPost count: 1140
I think Winders upset Bowering by trying to delay that centre pass.JinxiboParticipantJuly 27, 2020 at 5:43 pmPost count: 1140
Poor Williams looks like she’s being pushed around by Sulu’s elbowIan HarkinModeratorJuly 27, 2020 at 5:54 pmPost count: 14665
1/4 time: Mystics 24-21
Nweke 24/28 (86%)
Grapes 0/4 (0%)
Williams 10/13 (77%)
Latu-Meafou 11/13 (85%)
Mystics up by 4 with Grace Nweke dominating that Q with 13/15 while her shooting partner is still yet to score a goal. By comparison, the Magic shooters sharing the load.JinxiboParticipantJuly 27, 2020 at 6:13 pmPost count: 1140
Bowering awarded a toss-up !!!!
Get the rule book out, I think he did it wrong. Aren’t you supposed to face the way your team is shooting?Ian HarkinModeratorJuly 27, 2020 at 6:14 pmPost count: 14665
3/4 time: Mystics 38-30
Nweke 33/38 (87%)
Tui 1/1 (100%)
McPhee 4/5 (80%)
Latu-Meafou 16/19 (84%)
Mystics getting well on top now. Their defence of Fitzpatrick & Karaka has gradually gotten on top and are being rewarded by Nweke at the other end with 33 goals and 6 rebounds.NesianParticipantJuly 27, 2020 at 6:30 pmPost count: 253
I thought they should have dropped Mikaere back to GK a lot sooner than they did.
I think that match was well within the reach of the Magic especially seeing as Wilson approach to coaching is to make random subs for no ryhme or reason.al_exParticipantJuly 27, 2020 at 6:30 pmPost count: 1069
The battle of the strange coaching decisions!
I don’t know how Grapes is back to getting the start when she’s literally playing 0% halves. Vui came on very well and then Wilson threw Tui out there and she did a good job. Burgess was subbed off at the end despite shutting down Souness the whole match.
Williams played a good first half I thought. Not really sure why McPhee came on, she was involved in about 4 turnovers in the third and credited with three in the fourth. Then ALM was taken off. Playing Tong and Mikaere the wrong way around also caused issues.
Frustrating game to watch in general, Mystics will need to lift if they don’t want the Tactix to overtake them.
