    Glad to hear this series is still going ahead. Phew.

    Will the wonderful NZ streaming service be showing these games? I do hope so. Here in the lockdown capital of the universe, this week’s going to be wet and windy so it’d be great to have something to look forward to.

    just heard on the radio news that the application to have the Auckland based Men’s players granted an exemption to travel to Wellington has been denied

    Oh dear what a shambles. It’s actually embarrassing how hardline this has become.
    That’s prob half if not more of the team.

    they could probably add a few of the NZA players in – but the ones who would probably fit in nicely with them are probably in Auckland too (thinking Kate Burley/Elle Temu)

    @JR – absolutely feel for you. Melbourne?

    I’m not surprised the application has been denied. I’m pretty sure the only reason the Fern’s players got the exemption was because it was an international series.

    Poor U21 I really wanted then to have a runout.

    Sorry I didn’t read the article but Debz said on inside netball that they would release Paris, Tong and Poi back to NZA. Does this mean they will retain them in the main squad?

    Poi got the boot, the other 2 got lucky. Same miss firing mid court.

    Sulu is out so defensive end is still short of players, the mid-court can’t be. Also if they let Tong go she wouldn’t be able to get back down depending on where in Waikato she is based.

    Kimi has been given her work ons – maybe they still need more work? At least the midcourt has another chance to prove itself, in time for major adjustments before any more games either late this year or early next – covid willing.

    Kersten needs work ons lots of them.

    I think Poi with her ‘work ons’ is still a head and shoulders above Kersten – who no matter the work ons is not going to get better – I actually think she’s on the decline to where she was a few years ago

    I hope Poi ends up playing with the mens team – let her go head to head with Kersten – that will show what a lot of people are already saying…

    but with her not being in the squad – I really hope it gives Heffernan a chance for a good run – imagine both of them in a Ferns side for years to come – would cover off any opposition they came up against (I’m envisioning a Poi/Heffernan/Gordon/+1 mid court in the next few years and for a fair few to come after that)

    All about the midcourters and shooters this series.

    I would like to see TPSR play a full game proving her stamina. Wilson still regaining her confidence. Nweke, Metuarau and Hume all need courttime to gain experience. Still think Taurua willuse a moving circle at Comm games.

    I like Poi – a lot. I love the way she runs the line of the ball in defence. At times she does appear to float but not as majorly as Taieri did. She is still young, she has so much potential.
    Kersten has gone backward this year – initially I thought it was Pulse related, Captain and other – maybe internal – pressures but it transferred straight through to her SF performances.
    What I am looking forward to, and hoping to see, is Nweke show that she has the skills to cope with far more physical and taller defenders (men) on her. She is much used to being the tallest and most solid person in the attack circle. This should be good for her – I do hope she gets on court.

    what does Kate Burley need to do to get a run? I cannot for the life of me understand how Lokotui was picked over her…
