Would love to see Malesala brought on for Hume. Think she would muscle up to Burger a bit better.HBHPParticipantJuly 12, 2021 at 6:16 pmPost count: 82
What is this camera work. It’s nauseating!!WeWoodParticipantJuly 12, 2021 at 6:22 pmPost count: 341
Only watched the third quarter but Watson and Burger are monstering the Stars shooters. Beautiful to watch.
Reading the comments, obviously an off day for Wilson and she’s very shaky on the shot when she was re-introduced. Wonder if the issues she detailed in her recent Instagram post are coming to the fore.
I would bring Malesala on.
And echo comments about our (Ferns) shooters.Ian HarkinModeratorJuly 12, 2021 at 6:23 pmPost count: 12831
3/4 time: Tactix 37-29
Bird 34/35 (97%)
Selby-Rickit 3/7 (43%)
Wilson 8/16 (50%)
Hume 13/18 (72%)
Tactix headed for victory. The defensive combo at the back is putting on a clinic. Meanwhile there could not be a greater contrast than the 2 GSs tonight, Bird v Wilson!sami jParticipantJuly 12, 2021 at 6:35 pmPost count: 80
If Karin Burger isn’t the starting silver ferns GD then something has gone very wrong because she is playing out of her skin week in week out. Her partnership with Watson is getting better and better tooIan HarkinModeratorJuly 12, 2021 at 6:45 pmPost count: 12831
Full time: Tactix 52-39
Bird 44/45 (98%)
Selby-Rickit 8/14 (57%)
Hume 15/20 (75%)
Falkner 8/9 (89%)
Malesala 8/11 (73%)
Wilson 8/16 (50%)
A commanding win in the end. Can you believe it, the Watson Burger combo produced 22 gains tonight. That’s just ridiculous.BallerParticipantJuly 12, 2021 at 6:47 pmPost count: 408
I don’t know how things stand statistically, but potentially a minor final could be played in Auckland between Steel and Tactix.
Burger amazing. Hope Wilson find her MOJO again.Ian HarkinModeratorJuly 12, 2021 at 6:48 pmPost count: 12831
A reminder that Stars won their first 5 games this year. They’ve won just 3 of 8 since! A bit hard to see them making playoffs now.NZChampionParticipantJuly 12, 2021 at 6:50 pmPost count: 451
Well done Tactix! The seasons faves have finally arrived. Not over yet, but if they keep playing like that. No one will beat them.
Stars well, Maia has never been that bad before that I can remember. I actually thought Hume by the end was pretty solid. Considering her monster opponent, she didn’t do too bad.
What a beautiful acceptance speech from Burger with her 5th MVP. Great game to watch.JinxiboParticipantJuly 12, 2021 at 7:01 pmPost count: 1091
Maia feeling under the weather? Sick ?? Is that true? Gordon just said it on Netball zone.
Either way I’m just glad she gave Malesala a chance. IMO she and Faulkner should have shared the GS bib tonight. It was clear Maia’s shooting was off.
Watson & Burger WOW what combo. Imagine if Tem was fully fitJinxiboParticipantJuly 12, 2021 at 7:03 pmPost count: 1091
Forgot to say it was nice to see Karaka on court
Does anyone know when we can expect to see MSB?WeWoodParticipantJuly 12, 2021 at 7:17 pmPost count: 341
The Watson/Burger reminds me we don’t need out and out height. I reckon we take a punt on the fourth defender spot, after Watson, Burger and Fitzpatrick. Let Burley and Temu go hammer and tongs in trials for the fourth spot. I was picking Jury purely for her height.mcleodParticipantJuly 12, 2021 at 7:24 pmPost count: 1228
Bloody good stuff Tactix. Pedersen much more calming on attack. Geeez Burger is unreal. Please stay at the Tactix please!!!!JRParticipantJuly 12, 2021 at 8:00 pmPost count: 1161
There was a funny snippet of play in last year’s GF during Poi’s interview on Netball Zone. Koi was talking about how Tactix needs to play more calmly and there was Burger doing her Burger-best …..but in the Pulse uniform…..ha ha!
