Nweke rebounds over Levi and within a second tries to shoot and it’s a complete airball. Nweke has some great qualities for a GS but she has quite a bit of development to do in my opinion, especially in terms of positioning on her defender and just taking a breath. I have seen Nweke play a handful of times so take my comment with a grain of salt.
On the other end the ball is nearly being lobbed from nearly all the way at the transverse line into Gerber, NZ men’s GS, he’s a massive target, very good for their team.nanatorParticipantOctober 22, 2020 at 6:25 pmPost count: 59
Nweke has so much learning to do, but this experience will be invaluable for her. I would take Nweke, Falkner, Ekanasio, Wilson for the England series.
TPSR has been very average and is also carrying injury – Falkner and Nweke offer a point of difference.Netballcrazy1ParticipantOctober 22, 2020 at 6:26 pmPost count: 1366
Full Time: NZ Men’s 60-47Ian HarkinModeratorOctober 22, 2020 at 6:29 pmPost count: 5896
Full time: Strong 60-47 win in the end to the NZ Men. Ferns’ shooting % went down as the match wore on thanks to the pressure over the shot. Junior Levi even took a turn at GK at the end.JinxiboParticipantOctober 22, 2020 at 6:40 pmPost count: 411
Last year SF lost the first game to the men by 4 and the final by 12. Score 66 to 54
Let’s hope it’s the other way around this time.Netballcrazy1ParticipantOctober 22, 2020 at 6:43 pmPost count: 1366
If NZ can reduce the number of turnover in attack and get that shooting percentage up to low 90s, they could win. It’s just harder to get consistency right now with all the rotations they are doing to see what they like.gari79ParticipantOctober 22, 2020 at 6:45 pmPost count: 9
Interesting to see the long feeds stat: 27 (men) vs. 22 (Ferns), so it wasn’t the lob fest many think it was.JinxiboParticipantOctober 22, 2020 at 6:45 pmPost count: 411
Falkner and Nweke looking like a good combo but agree Nweke needs to sort out her shooting. Not wholly convinced she should be in the the squad to face the Roses, however, she does need to gain experience of playing against different defences at an international level.TBParticipantOctober 22, 2020 at 6:46 pmPost count: 133
Souness was outstanding in her time on the court. Souness Saunders Poi and Winders would be my pick.
My shooters would be Wilson Eke Nweke and Falkner.
Defence picks itself.greenasgxldParticipantOctober 22, 2020 at 6:48 pmPost count: 43
Let’s remember that England aren’t going to have an overly tall defence, so I feel like Nweke will be picked for the extra height. Also I’m pretty sure that TPSR is nursing an injury??Ian HarkinModeratorOctober 22, 2020 at 6:50 pmPost count: 5896NZChampionParticipantOctober 22, 2020 at 7:08 pmPost count: 307
Man I thought Nweke held her own in some of those phases of play. How anyone scores over those giants is beyond me. The nerves were going 100 for Nweke lol. But that will make her stronger, she muscled up well with them, but needs to woke on her nerves. Falkner is primed for Silverferns. She shows far more energy than TP ever will.
Winders was much stronger in WD and came up with some brilliant intercepts. I was very impressed.
I think is the strongest lineup. Poi hasn’t really impressed me. She’s been present on court, but I’m not really noticing her. Saunders is by far the best option for C.NZChampionParticipantOctober 22, 2020 at 7:13 pmPost count: 307
Oh crap, Nweke in for TP I mean.nanatorParticipantOctober 22, 2020 at 9:56 pmPost count: 59
I wish Sounness stayed at Magic; Sounness-Winders combo would be good to develop for the FernsTBParticipantOctober 22, 2020 at 10:08 pmPost count: 133
Nweke will be so dominant on the international scene.
What I did like about her game today, was she was still confident in her holding game. She did add movement, but she kept to her strength of holding. She took some good ball in the air, and set herself up well.
I was concerned that she was going to totally change up her game, because the men are so strong in the air.
She definitely rushed a few shots, and needed to take a breath. But on a whole I thought she really held her own.
