I agree that Thwaites should have been MVP.
Very emotional interview with Manu’a at the end.TBParticipantAugust 23, 2020 at 4:16 pmPost count: 791
I would choose CBass as the starting GS over Harten. Her height alone can sometimes be a get-out-of-jail card, when things start to get tight in the attack.
Austin needs to stay in GA, and Hay in WA.
This is a lineup I’d love to see:
Completely left field from what they normally run, but something I’d like to see.JbssParticipantAugust 23, 2020 at 4:27 pmPost count: 231
I wouldn’t put JLP in circle defence especially not with Poolman. If Manu’a shifts out to WD then Brandley or McDonnell should be GD.JbssParticipantAugust 23, 2020 at 4:28 pmPost count: 231
I think for Giants when Hay and JLP aren’t working they should move Hay to C and bring on COB or Parmenter to C JLP to WDTBParticipantAugust 23, 2020 at 6:29 pmPost count: 791
I’ve seen JLP play GD before (however that was a long time ago). I quite liked her there. With how she’s developed over the years, I think she’d be a great tagging type of GD.
I view her, very similar-ish to Holly Fowler/Kayla Cullen. They are tall (midcourt standards) and very athletic. Coaches like to push them out to C, but they are a bigger threat at WD/GD.mcleodParticipantAugust 23, 2020 at 6:47 pmPost count: 1508
JLP should really be playing WD, her only coach has ever been Julie F, maybe time for new ideas.TACTIXSUPPORTERParticipantAugust 23, 2020 at 7:43 pmPost count: 455
JLP is a bloody good WD and serviceable C.
Julie F has been her coach for most of her professional career. A change of coach might help take her game to another levelBluebirdParticipantAugust 23, 2020 at 9:41 pmPost count: 113
I always thought Giants recruiting Bassett was odd. I wonder if she will move again, or is hers a 3 year contract?MuffieParticipantAugust 23, 2020 at 10:45 pmPost count: 36
I agree Thwaites for MVP. Had to play GA longer than normal. Her connections were great in the attack end. Australia will miss her. Too late for a change in Australian coach, the horse has bolted. Come back Australia need you. Well don Caitlin Thwaites.al_exParticipantAugust 23, 2020 at 10:50 pmPost count: 1082
I often wonder if Thwaites would have stuck around for Aus if she was really given a crack at the starting bib, but she’s such a team player I’m not sure if she would have. We’ll probably never know now anyway. I wonder if McKinnis does become coach whether she could be talked back into it, I think COVID has really changed a lot of players’ perspectives.
Bassett has a three-year contract, Austin and Harten have two-year contracts. Hard to see all three remaining next year, but again it seems like players aren’t really going to move around so much because of COVID.montybParticipantAugust 24, 2020 at 1:51 pmPost count: 53
Austin was incredible and has surely earned the GA bib, but i do question why C-Bass wasn’t brought on for impact. I like JulieF, but her coaching decisions often look like favourtism to me. They loyalty she give Harten, Price and Manu’a I don’t believe is always justified.
