Potgieter is not setting up for the rebound when Horjus shoots, she is wayyyy out. Not a good signNetballcrazy1ParticipantAugust 26, 2020 at 8:24 pmPost count: 2255
1/2 Time: Thunderbirds 24-20TullyParticipantAugust 26, 2020 at 8:26 pmPost count: 1359
If Kumwenda gets the ball out of the circle she doesn’t even look to the post for her fellow shooter. Tries to pass out to a midcourter and set herself up. Doesn’t work with her GA.
Doubt the stats would show it but It Eaton is having a great game. Makes her opponent make errors and sets Mannix up for the intercepts.
Pitman has schooled Eddy. Nankivell bearing Moloney. As brilliant as the Thunderbirds defence is I think it’s their midcourt that is laying the foundation for the win.ScottParticipantAugust 26, 2020 at 8:27 pmPost count: 122
I am a member of both the Vixens and Magpies, but am absolutely loving watching the Thunderbirds play this season.Ian HarkinModeratorAugust 26, 2020 at 8:27 pmPost count: 17170
1/2 time: Tbirds 24-20
Potgieter 18/18 (100%)
Horjus 6/8 (75%) 0/1 (0%)
Kumwenda 6/6 (100%)
Thwaites 11/11 (100%) 0/1 (0%)
Great game. There’s something about these 2 teams. Clearly the Tbirds match up well with the Vixens. It’s a huge battle out there!JRParticipantAugust 26, 2020 at 8:30 pmPost count: 1562
Vixens lost the momentum towards the end of that quarter; another arm wrestle.al_exParticipantAugust 26, 2020 at 8:30 pmPost count: 1082
I feel like Eddy’s game has been alright, she’s forced Pitman into a lot of errors. Same can be said for Weston. I’d take Moloney off and have Watson/Honey in the midcourt, far more speed and two players who actually demand the ball.
Thwaites and Kumwenda are awkward but more effective. I think it’s good that it slows them down, when Philip’s on the midcourt makes too many brain snap errors.Netballcrazy1ParticipantAugust 26, 2020 at 8:35 pmPost count: 2255
Yes although Eddy and Weston haven’t been amazing I’m inclined to look at Pittman’s four turnovers and Horjus’ six turnovers. Their pressure has caused a lot of problems in the attack, especially in that second quarterScottParticipantAugust 26, 2020 at 8:35 pmPost count: 122
Shamera Sterling 4 intercepts, 2 deflections and 2 rebounds. Emily Mannix 3 intercepts, 4 deflections and 1 rebound.TullyParticipantAugust 26, 2020 at 8:38 pmPost count: 1359
Yeah I’d be happy with leaving Eddy and having Honey and Watson. Nankivell is all over Moloney. I just can’t see them taking Moloney off.
I’ll watch Eddy closer. Weston is doing the work and forcing errors.JRParticipantAugust 26, 2020 at 8:39 pmPost count: 1562
What I noticed with the stats was that both WA’s and both C’s have about the same GPTs and penalties…looks like pinballs out there in the centre court.
In recent times Watson has often been demanding, and receiving the ball very close to her team mate passing it; especially in the goal third. It avoids the 3 second call, but is it effective?

Didn’t see Vixens making this change. Philip to GS and Kumwenda off. Kumwenda was shooting well and going to the post u like Philip. Perhaps Kumwenda paid the price for not playing a combination.Ian HarkinModeratorAugust 26, 2020 at 8:41 pmPost count: 17170
44 goals at half time is the lowest 1st half score this season. The 2nd lowest… was 45 goals in round 4 the last time these two teams met.Netballcrazy1ParticipantAugust 26, 2020 at 8:41 pmPost count: 2255
And very quickly the Vixens are within one goal of the ThunderbirdsNetballcrazy1ParticipantAugust 26, 2020 at 8:42 pmPost count: 2255
Looks like Glasgow is coming in at GA to help with the attacking movement for the Thunderbirds, and the height may be helpful too
