      Saunders is there.

      The midcourt is certaintly going to be competitive which is why I predict NT might select a slightly larger midcourt.

      Going by the Stuff photo – yes we are going to be defensively light.

        I’d be interested to see the final squad if it’s going to be “doing things differently”

        My current picks are

        Wilson
        Ekenasio
        Faulkner
        + Mes if she is fit

        I’d like to see more of Faulkner esp thinking about the future to work with Maia and Eke. I’m unconvinced about TPSR I always want to back her but I do find her a bit hit and miss.

        Crampton
        Saunders
        Burger
        Gordon
        Sinclair
        Poi

        Really would like to see Gordon and Poi included if they are going to go heavier on the mid court, poi was excellent in the nations cup and I think it would be great for Maddy to get exposure as she’s definitely a future ferns star. Sinclair is my experienced ferns head to balance out my youngsters!

        Watson
        Jury
        Temalisi

        I have one space left which would go to a defender I just don’t know which one yet! Would be interesting to see who has missed out from the fitness testing

            I can’t see Temalisi or Kelly Jury that huddle, unless she’s now got highlights and is the gk in the yellow bib and I’m blind ?

              Jinixbo I’m pretty sure Poi is between Souness and Hume (wearing the GA bib) in that shot.

              I’m especially interested in the midcourt because for mine Sinclair and Kersten finished the TJ Series in the starting seven. There was no room for Burger or Saunders in that midcourt and Poi and Gordon didn’t even make the 12.

                @baller,@WeWood, I was talking about the twitter clip. The one that gave an insight into the ferns camp.

                I haven’t had a chance look at the stuff article yet.

                It’s nearly midnight in the UK I’ll check it out in the morning.

                  Highlights, think is Amelia’s, could see Tem either, hope she made it thru. Obviously there’s a gag on who the
                  5 are.

                    I think she is going to go 3/6/3. In her interview she highlighted midcourt
                    My picks would be:
                    Ekenasio
                    Wilson
                    Mes
                    Saunders
                    Poi
                    Crampton
                    Kersten
                    Souness
                    Burger
                    Watson
                    Jury
                    Fitzpatrick

                      It’s a shame we didn’t see more of Falkner against England. She’s the first back up for NZL right now and it’s a pretty big ask to throw her in against the likes of Westin/Bruce/Klau/Mannix. Ekenasio and Wilson are dominant but the point of these series is to build depth.

                      The NZL midcourt is very deep and Taurua showed that she really wanted to give the wider squad opportunities in the Cadbury and England Series so I think we’ll see at least 5 if not 6 in the 12. I still think it’s such a shame Pederson got left out of the squad and NZA, she had a terrible grand final but was really a standout across the ANZP season.

                        My 12 so far are.
                        Ekenasio
                        Wilson
                        Falkner
                        Mes

                        Crampton
                        Heffernan
                        Poi
                        Kersten

                        Burger
                        Watson
                        Fitzpatrick
                        ????. Fitness issues have made the defence a problem. I want to put Jury there but!!!!

                        Mes will be the shooter/WA option. So Souness might be left out.
                        Heffernan as a bolter, that allows Burger to be at GD.

                          Jinxibo I feel your pain as we had 5? weeks like that last year followed by more restrictions for a few weeks, then again in August/Sept (about 3-4 weeks) and now waiting to see what happens after our 3 new cases in NZ (I’m Auckland where most of the QT hotels are right in the CBD). Stay strong 🙂

                            Who are the players standing to the right and left of Sulu?

                            No Nweke, Dunn, Mikaere, Bird, Fakahokotau, Jury in that shot.

                              Add TPSR to the missing. Some of the above might have not been at the trials either.

                                Jinxibo, I am sorry to read how you are feeling. Here in Melbourne we had two lockdowns, the first was across the country, but the second one was Melbourne (and a nearby regional area) and it was LONG and restricted. I taught from home for 8 months…went back to work the first day and the soles of my feet were stinging at the end of the day…cos I hadn’t worn shoes for a whole day for 8 months, it was 8 months…and I wasn’t wearing stilettos, they were middle aged woman’s ‘ugly’ sandals!!

                                Yes stay strong. :heart:

                                  Yeah we’ve gone through just a pittance of what the UK has. Nephew was lucky to get home to NZ before Xmas. Feel for you Brits, so much loss of life and hardship.
