    You make a good point regarding the Priceline Stadium courts and the number of ACLs that have been injured there. But I would assume the all the courts must be held to some sort of standard so I would hope that it’s just a coincidence.

    It is probably just a coincidence, but I did wonder about the extra pink decal in the circle.

    It will be interesting to see if the netballsmart warmup they have recently started in NZ has a statistical impact on ACL and ankle injuries at all.

    When they introduced the KNEE warmup into Australia (around 5+ years ago?) it was suggested that it would have little impact on current elite players who were already doing similar things, however would have an impact on juniors moving through the ranks – so the impact would be unlikely to be seen for 10 years or so.
    (It was very ironic that Maddie Brown before her first ACL injury, was in the videos showing “how not to” perform some of the exercises)

    South Australian decals have seemed to be the focal point of most ACLs in Australia in recent memory. Cobden, Glasgow x 2, Cassidy, Davies, Lange and Austin all come to mind. Cody Lange’s screams and Jo Weston’s reaction both during and after the match is something I’ll never forget.

    Here’s a link to an interview I did with Kadie-Ann Dehaney after their loss to the Fever.

    If I’m not wrong, some of those ACLs that occurred in SA weren’t all on the same court. Not sure how much of a difference it would make but I know for sure that Lange’s injury happened at the Entertainment centre not Priceline Stadium

    Assuming Austin is out for the season i would love to see Charlee Hodges come in as a replacement player, doubt it would happen as Fitzgerald seems very invested in NSW talent but would be nice to see

    Provided she is fit, they have a very talented and star of the future in one of their training partners to promote. Matisse Leatherbarrow would slot in nicely. I heard she was injured earlier in the year though and not sure how serious it was.

    Also, if Dwyer continues to impress with solid court time, she could find her way into the Diamonds squad.

    Yes Lange’s ACL was at the other Adelaide venue I believe. But I have always found the Adelaide decals to look particularly slippery, I wonder if it has something to do with whoever’s contracted to lay them.

    I would expect Letherbarrow would be promoted if Austin is out for the season. She’s more than deserving of the opportunity. JFitz has made it pretty clear that the three shooters she wants for the Giants over the next 5-10 years are Austin, Dwyer and Letherbarrow.

    I also expect Leatherbarrow to be promoted if she’s not injured. If shes not fit to play I think Hodges would be a great back up for them to have (but doubt they’ll look to her).

    Crazy how competitive the young Aussies shooters are going to make selections. I think Dwyer and Dwan should be introduced to the Australian squad environment in the next season or two. At the moment (if Austin’s injury is an ACL), I think we have another international season or so of Wood, Tippett, Bassett (if they’re all in form) and then also Koenan.

    Without knowing all the behind-the-scenes stuff (and it’s only round 1), Tbirds & Vixens IMO struggled in the WA position. Both teams could have done with the experience of Chelsea Pitman.
    Mundy is going to grow into a very good player, she’s got the goods. I think it would have been handy to have someone like Pitman, to take over from half time.
