So Proud and Moore start off! Should be interesting to see if Turner can start getting back into her 2019 form todayIan HarkinModeratorSeptember 5, 2020 at 3:20 pmPost count: 20422

Craig is given a caution with 6 penalties this quarteral_exParticipantSeptember 5, 2020 at 3:33 pmPost count: 1163
I’d give Moore a crack at WD. Craig too expensive but I think the Swifts need Hadley at C, both Haythornthwaite and Proud have been a bit reckless. Swifts a lot less clinical this year, even when they’re winning it feels more laboured.TullyParticipantSeptember 5, 2020 at 3:34 pmPost count: 1648
Dwan has been a revelation. I did not expect her to play so well. Huge improvement since team girls cup 2019 and yet since then she has mainly been injured. I really hope she doesn’t spend 2021 sitting on the pine. I would love to see her Change clubs if necessary but I doubt she will.TullyParticipantSeptember 5, 2020 at 3:35 pmPost count: 1648
Al_ex what about Turner at WD and Moore at GD?Ian HarkinModeratorSeptember 5, 2020 at 3:39 pmPost count: 20422
1/4 time: Firebirds 19-12
Wallace 10/10 (100%) 0/1 (0%)
Housby 2/2 (100%)
Aiken 14/15 (93%)
Dwan 3/5 (60%) 1/1 (100%)
A strong start by the Firebirds, but that shouldn’t be a surprise. They’re the second best starting team in the competition. But from the 2nd Q onwards…..al_exParticipantSeptember 5, 2020 at 3:44 pmPost count: 1163
Yeah I think Turner would fit better into WD than Moore but Dwan has been really good and I think they need to grind her down. To be honest I think either option would be better than what’s going on right now.
Aiken has really improved over this year, I think Dwan has brought the best out of her. Tippett had a great year last year but I don’t think she really brought the best out of those around her, hence why they didn’t win much.Netballcrazy1ParticipantSeptember 5, 2020 at 3:54 pmPost count: 2332
Firebirds using the super shot VERY well and I guess no Swifts are forced to take those shots as well.Netballcrazy1ParticipantSeptember 5, 2020 at 3:55 pmPost count: 2332
Dwan with 3 supershots and what can I say… When will this STUPID rule leave our game.TullyParticipantSeptember 5, 2020 at 3:56 pmPost count: 1648
Brain explosion by Klau and Dwan punishes them with a super shot.
Two great games today.JbssParticipantSeptember 5, 2020 at 3:58 pmPost count: 231
SS once again giving a team more momentum than they’ve earnedal_exParticipantSeptember 5, 2020 at 3:58 pmPost count: 1163
Dunkley is so stable at WA, always providing an option and never looks rushed or bothered. Very few errors. The front end for the Firebirds in general is looking so solid. Dwan has to be challenging for the Diamonds squad…
I think Garbin has to come on at GA, the Swifts stop trying to play at a million miles an hour when she’s on. Proud and Haythornthwaite are just too impulsive today and although Housby has been great in defence she’s been involved in some turnovers.Ian HarkinModeratorSeptember 5, 2020 at 4:02 pmPost count: 20422
1/2 time: Firebirds 39-30
Wallace 22/22 (100%) 1/2 (50%)
Housby 6/6 (100%)0/2 (0%)
Aiken 24/29 (83%)
Dwan 7/9 (78%) 4/5 (80%)
Swifts narrowed the gap to just 3 but then 4 super shots by Dwan and the lead was stretched again. Lara Dunkley has been a good player for Firebirds.
