Ferns have won more ball than being down by 6 suggests.
That midcourt needs to settle. Would try Saunders with Poi.Ian HarkinModeratorMarch 7, 2021 at 12:35 pmPost count: 10437
1/4 time: Aus 12-6
Wilson 4/5 (80%)
Ekenasio 2/3 (67%)
Koenen 3/3 (100%)
Austin 9/10 (90%)
The Australian defence was so strong in that Q. Can they keep it up?TBParticipantMarch 7, 2021 at 12:35 pmPost count: 429
I guess it’s favouritism then 🤷♂️
Charles has not done anything special, to warrant her spot in the 12. It is also her first time playing for Diamonds too right?TullyParticipantMarch 7, 2021 at 12:36 pmPost count: 914
Grrr Moloney is right in front of Bruce instead she throws a high pass over Watson’s head. Stop trying to be the attacking superstar Bruce.Netballcrazy1ParticipantMarch 7, 2021 at 12:37 pmPost count: 1928
Diamonds attack throw the ball around for 30 seconds until eventually, NZ causes a turnover. This is what worries me about Stacey not tinkering with the attack, if their struggles progressively increase, there isn’t much that they can fall back on with a lot of confidence.
Another turnover from the shooters. NZ now only down by 2…WeWoodParticipantMarch 7, 2021 at 12:38 pmPost count: 252

Weston has the weirdest shoulder pass technique.
I think we need Price in centre.TBParticipantMarch 7, 2021 at 12:43 pmPost count: 429
Ferns need to add more front cuts. They are doing a lot of running out wide and around. When they pass and cut, things open up for them.JoDeParticipantMarch 7, 2021 at 12:43 pmPost count: 90
Bruce needs to back off and re set.WeWoodParticipantMarch 7, 2021 at 12:43 pmPost count: 252
Austin looks like she’s sucking on the big ones. Seems buggered.TBParticipantMarch 7, 2021 at 12:44 pmPost count: 429
I feel that’s Austin’s normal look.TBParticipantMarch 7, 2021 at 12:52 pmPost count: 429
Wilson is moving way too much. Our attack looks lost when she comes out of the circle. Ekenasio should be offering more of that movement, and leave Wilson on the hold (not the other way around).
I wonder if Eke’s calf is not allowing her to move as much?al_exParticipantMarch 7, 2021 at 12:53 pmPost count: 958
The circle functions so much better when Austin looks to set up Koenen instead of just front driving and taking endless midrange shots. I’d take Austin off for this quarter and put Bassett/Garbin on at GS with Koenen at GA. If it doesn’t work, bring Austin back on and hopefully it’ll get some air into her lungs having the break.
The Diamonds defensive three are doing a really good job, if these girls can earn how to play more consistently out of attack I think that should be the lineup going forward.
Moloney needs to come off she doesn’t offer enough in attack. With Austin getting more tired we’ll just have a repeat of the previous two test matches if she stays on.Ian HarkinModeratorMarch 7, 2021 at 12:55 pmPost count: 10437

Basically the same situation as yesterday. Australia on top but not dominant. Can they hold on this time?
