The Firebirds are a bit like the Vixens and the Swifts, in that players seem to be very loyal and they don’t come and go so easily. I would be very surprised to see Dwan leave. Personally I think Bueta/Dwan is a future Diamonds circle and I expect that next year they’ll start transitioning into that more. Aiken can’t play forever. Players like Dwyer and Dwan may be better off moving to Vixens but I don’t think they will.
I used to be quite critical of Sinclair but she’s really been excellent the last few weeks. Nelson/Sinclair/Browne/Jovic could be one of the strongest attacking ends in the league next year if they work on their consistency. I wouldn’t be surprised if Nelson ends up as the best GS in the world in a few years, her and Nweke are well above the others in their age group.Ian HarkinModeratorJuly 29, 2021 at 11:12 pmPost count: 10196NZChampionParticipantJuly 30, 2021 at 9:59 amPost count: 442
I love the bibs! They add so much colour to ugly referee looking uniforms magpies have. Please keep them.
I’m really enjoying the under dogs stepping up. Getting some crucial wins that are changing the order of the top 4. The business end is looking very interesting indeed. My favorite part of the season of both comps!Ian HarkinModeratorAugust 1, 2021 at 10:18 pmPost count: 10196MaryannParticipantAugust 2, 2021 at 7:11 amPost count: 470
That’s good news for the players. It was really getting to the stage where a call as to ending the season on the current results needed to be made.
NZChampion – your comments on the Magpies uniform made me laugh. I keep looking at Geva as with those calf support sleeves she wears it reminds me of the image of a naughty school girl at a party costume.
Enough said! :)amandalouiseParticipantAugust 2, 2021 at 2:48 pmPost count: 43
