Grace McLean is doing a really good job for the Pulse. Still not sure why they chose to bring Amaru-Tibble back.Ian HarkinModeratorMarch 27, 2021 at 4:06 pmPost count: 20456

Interesting to see Souness in GABallerParticipantMarch 27, 2021 at 6:16 pmPost count: 598
Souness was incredibly nippy and somewhat accurate from the play I saw.CKParticipantMarch 27, 2021 at 7:58 pmPost count: 14

Looks like it’s going to be an interesting ANZP. Top 3 teams imo Tactix, Pulse and Stars. Magic look very good too, so could see them in the hunt.
Tactix looked well oiled, just the shot to finish at times. Solid connections throughout though.
Pulse looking brand new and very young. But they also have great connections and possibly the best bench.
Stars with Harrison makes a difference. Shooters galore in this team. Stars are spoiled for shooters. Some great options off the bench.
Magic look very good, with more time together will surely improve over the season.
Mystics forever looking for consistency. Good luck with that. I don’t think Burley suits this team. She spent most of the weekend out of play.
Steel not too bad. Should look more settled with Fisher in the back. Loved the safe hands on attack, Saunders leadership will be crucial for them on attack.CKParticipantMarch 28, 2021 at 1:19 pmPost count: 14

I think it is probably her consistency. I watched all of the games this weekend, and when she is hot, she is super. But when she is not, it is like everything Kees going badly for her. Check out the Pulse first game this weekend compared to the game vs Stars.
Ok another note, the injury toll for this tournament is rough.mcleodParticipantMarch 28, 2021 at 3:40 pmPost count: 1687
I’m wondering if Souness will be used more at GA in the ANZ. Ekenasio maybe given more time to have a extended break.BallerParticipantMarch 28, 2021 at 5:10 pmPost count: 598
Biggest surprise of the weekend: Souness at GA… 88% against the Stars
Most impressive team: Tactix
Weird moments: Still getting used to seeing Bassett but great to see her laughing with Mikaere
Highlight: Seeing young players get substantial court time
Low light: too many rolled anklesmcleodParticipantMarch 28, 2021 at 5:36 pmPost count: 1687
Do have to wonder about the strapping of the ankles.
To much, to little, not enough prep.
Thankfully 3 weeks until the start of the anz.sarahloveParticipantMarch 28, 2021 at 5:56 pmPost count: 34
Knees as well.
Taylor from Mystics and the WA training partner from the Stars both have done knees I suspect.JinxiboParticipantMarch 28, 2021 at 8:34 pmPost count: 1195
OMG loving it
@NZ Champ, I agree with your to a point Tactix and Stars will be at the top, not fully convinced about Pulse.
@Baller, Mcleod and Sarahlove, agreed too many injuries, but having said that 1 injury is too much for me. They were a mix of knee and ankle. THSR was as a result of landing on someones foot so it’s not all down to poor conditioning.JinxiboParticipantMarch 28, 2021 at 9:13 pmPost count: 1195
Most impressive team: Tactix, they have the strongest defence and centre court
Weird moments: Souness at GA, but she was good and Hume at centre
Highlight: Seeing Fisher. Steel have such a young Team with lots of promise. With Saunders and THSR at each end to act as anchors , well they could be a surprise package. Jury at GD, I know she played there a few times at Magic but now she’s older and wiser so I can’t wait to see what she can do
Low light: my team the Magic. They looked like 7 players on a court, not a team. I was disappointed with the lack of conditioning of Semple and Tem
