Not sure what Vixens should do but their attack is woeful. Needs a change ASAP.
Thwaites on would be a good start. I’d leave Philip, I know she hasn’t had a lot of shots but that is cause she is doing so much work through court.Kumwenda is fine but the midcourt can’t get to circle edge to feed her. The midcourt (not Eddy, who is doing well) needs a change. Not sure they have the personnel though.
I feel like Honey is pulling out of a lot of moves. Then when she is there her teammates aren’t releasing (when they do she either takes it or Simpson gets called). It if they aren’t going to give her the ball then get her off.

I am just wondering how Jenner’s defending is never called for intimidation… might need to check up on what actually counts as intimidation but to me those crazy waving arms and simultaneous jumping up and down is borderline nowal_exParticipantSeptember 20, 2020 at 1:37 pmPost count: 1198
I’m sure all SSN teams would struggle if they took out their best midcourter, but no team has built their entire strategy around a player as much as Vixens have done with Watson. They just look lost without her. Moloney seems to partner better with McDonald so maybe they should bring her on, even if Honey herself hasn’t done much wrong. Maybe Philip at WA with Kumwenda/Thwaites in the circle?
Dwan is great. Looks so unaffected by Weston. The Firebirds defenders picking up the scraps and taking the opportunities given to them. It’ll be interesting if they can keep the penalties under control.Ian HarkinModeratorSeptember 20, 2020 at 1:38 pmPost count: 20954
1/4 time: Firebirds 18-12
Kumwenda 10/10 (100%) 0/1 (0%)
Philip 2/3 (67%)
Aiken 12/12 (100%)
Dwan 4/4 (100%) 1/2 (50%)
The Firebirds’ defence in the power play was excellent. They won the last 5 mins 8-2. Vixens went almost the last 3 mins not scoring. Firebirds 5 gains to 2TullyParticipantSeptember 20, 2020 at 1:41 pmPost count: 1780
Yep released the CP to Honey and Simpson called for contact.
As predicted Thwaites on as the change. Probably easier to feed off circle edge. But they still need to fix the mess ahead of her.
I really agree with Watson said that Honey is timid. Command the ball.
Dehaney on at GK now.Netballcrazy1ParticipantSeptember 20, 2020 at 1:42 pmPost count: 2353
Arguably, this is one of the best outings from Simpson so far this season, she is on everything, lots of defensive pressure, maybe seeing some glimpses of when her form is up thereTullyParticipantSeptember 20, 2020 at 1:43 pmPost count: 1780
Simone you have changed both circles and now it is 11. Perhaps a change to the problem area of the midcourt?Ian HarkinModeratorSeptember 20, 2020 at 1:43 pmPost count: 20954
A 7-2 run to start the Q and the Firebirds are out by 11!TullyParticipantSeptember 20, 2020 at 1:47 pmPost count: 1780
Good to see McDonald on. As Ellis said unless you release the ball you won’t draw a penalty. Really feel that was the problem with What was going on with Honey. Weren’t giving her the ball.al_exParticipantSeptember 20, 2020 at 1:49 pmPost count: 1198
McDonald has been excellent since she came on, how have we not seen more of her this season? She seems to have a better connection with Thwaites than Moloney does.
Firebirds making some lazy errors in attack, Vixens starting to capitalise.JbssParticipantSeptember 20, 2020 at 1:50 pmPost count: 231
Moloney hasn’t shown much confidence in either WA tbh. I guess that’s the problem with her having such an established combination with Watson, makes it hard to adjust.Ian HarkinModeratorSeptember 20, 2020 at 1:50 pmPost count: 20954
And much like the first Q, a couple of silly Firebirds errors sees Vixens claw their way back.TullyParticipantSeptember 20, 2020 at 1:55 pmPost count: 1780
Vixens having to go backwards more often than not on the CP.
Eddy and Weston having to work over time in attack.Netballcrazy1ParticipantSeptember 20, 2020 at 1:56 pmPost count: 2353
Vixens narrow the margin from 11 to just 3, they don’t really deserve it considering the number of turnovers they have had but that’s the power of the supershot, and I guess Dwan has pushed Firebirds up with a few as well so it’s evening out kind of.
