        3/4 time: NZ 49 v Jam 41

        NZ seemingly gained control in that control after a few careless errors from the Sunshine Girls. Maia Wilson having a great game again.

        Still watching that penalty count. It was 25-5 against Jamaica! In Q 1 & 3 combined, it’s 51-9!!!

              Wow, what a game between Jam and SF. Really come down to conditioning, composure and basic errors in the 2nd half.

              Sterling’s ‘frustration’ is a very unlikeable part of her game.

                  Full time: NZ 67 v Jam 56

                  In the end, a comfortable NZ win. It all came from the 3rd Q when a sloppy Jamaican team had 8 turnovers to 2. That was it. You’re not going to win giving up that sort of advantage to NZ.

                  Wilson 44/47 (94%)
                  Ekenasio 22/28 (79%)
                  Selby-Rickit 1/1 (100%)

                  Fowler 46/47 (98%)
                  Beckford 10/11 (91%)

                  Gains: 10-10
                  Penalties: Jam 83-39
                  Turnovers: Jam 30-21

                  Beckford 20 assists
                  Sterling 4 gains

                  Player of the Match: Maia Wilson

                    Should have bought Williams on as GD with Quashie. The other pairings didn’t work, and Shimmin just isn’t a GD.

                    Cardwell was brilliant throughout the competition. She was so accurate from range. She’s not a natural GA and frankly the coaches now need to start bringing in a GA, in the same way they gave Carter a decent introduction.

                      Yeah for me, Cardwell was the player of the tournament. That turn and shoot is going to cause some headaches in the future.

                      Dixon, Beckford for Jamaica stood out. Carter, Cardwell, Fisher for England. Rademan for SA. Wilson and Poi for NZ. Some possible contracts in NZ and Aussie maybe in 2021.

                      I feel that all teams have gained some much needed exposure and experience. I think Thirlby has done well for England. Also Connie Francis for Jamaica. I’m a little concerned about SA, they really should have done better with the team they have. Perhaps the coach is still finding her feet and Norma’s kids are adjusting to the new coach maybe.

                      So it’s back to the wilderness until the netball leagues all start up. Can’t wait for that.

                          This last day was in London, not Birmingham.

                          Loved the courtside commentary team, inc the outfits they wore….except for LA’s both days she was there, far too boxy for her body shape.

                          Have enjoyed this immensely, so grateful we could watch on the other side of the world. Will we be able to watch the English competition when it begins in late Feb? Would be amazing to see Cardwell, Fisher et al more.

                          Go Jane W……well deserved.
