    Mannix MVP. She’s just getting better and better.

    I’d be very surprised to see Lightning back for the final. I only really see it happening if Swifts upset Fever and then either throw in a stinker or get some injuries. Their attack end has been worked out a bit.

    Vixens were excellent. Whether they win the title or not is yet to be seen, but they certainly deserve to. Mannix has to be back in the Diamonds and I think she will be, Marinkovic seems to like playing Bruce at GD a bit.

    Last year Lightning saved their worse game for the season, for the GF.
    Maybe this year, by already playing their worst game…..they may play really good for the rest of the finals? 🤷‍♂️

    Who has Vixens got in the shooting circle for 2021? I think Dwan would be a good move and suit Vixens style of play. Would fit in well with Kumwenda. When Buetta comes back, Dwan would be bench sitting. Where’s Garbin going? Interested to know, who would you pick in the Australian development squad.

    Garbin and Dwan would be a good combination for Vixens. The experience of Kumwenda would make them a very strong shooting end.

    Garbin and Dwan would be amazing gets for them. I doubt they’d get both, even one would surprise me given I assume Garbin is looking for more of a GA role and Firebirds will be very keen to hold onto Dwan. I guess the question is how much longer Firebirds want to keep Aiken for. I expect they’ll want to keep all three for a while and transition into Bueta/Dwan as a combo, there is no reason Gretel can’t learn GS.

    Vixens were supberb. Mannix n Weston played well. Maloney n Watson were steady considering their ankles were sore. Shooters consistent. Langman n Scherian were not upto their usual stand. I kiked Vixens srsnd in wd – Smith, she played well. A deserved win. Go the Swifts for tomorrows semi.

    Wow that was a pretty comprehensive win by Vixens over the Lightning. Lightning were beaten in most areas of the court. It’s a shame Proscovia’s form has slipped due to lack of court time. I think Fever would have the best chance of beating Vixens. It’s a shame Thwaites is retiring, she looks to be the best aussie shooter to me, at the moment. Can shoot close and long range.

    Thwaites has really shone this season. Showing great maturity with her play and appears to be more relaxed in general.
