      I’m unfamiliar with Toeava not speaking? Meaning she’s not comfortable or English isn’t a first language? Can anyone elaborate for me please?

          Doesn’t do interviews with press, very rare, doesn’t say alot & has to have someone beside her.

          I hope no one takes offence to this but it is quite common of Samoan descent?

            The article is a newsroom one titled ‘once shy toeava grabs her time to shine’

            Talks about how shy she was and how much confidence she lacked and how she found her voice to talk to her fellow players. She still won’t talk to media without someone with her.

              RMB – yes can be common particularly if english is their second language. I actually don’t know any ladies of Pacific descent (and I know a lot) who are loud and push themselves forwards, they are always very softly spoken.

                  Thank you for informing me.

                  I really think Bird has outplayed Jury this game.

                    With this game wrapped up, Pulse puts all of the benchies on!

                        If Fisher heads to AU, am sure the Steel will make a play for Walmsley. Too good to be riding the pine.

                          Yes, Toeava is softly spoken off the court but she is loud on the court. I remember an interview when she was talking about the black dress and what it meant to her and her family, she was tearing up while trying to talk. Her brother was also an All Black

                          TPSR went missing a bit in this game unfortunately. Bird seems to get a lot of flack but I rate her. Didn’t have her best shooting night but get her the ball around the hoop and she is usually money.

                          Good win for the Pulse though. Bring on the Mystics.

                            So with that loss Tactix are dead and buried to make semis. Steel are a mathematical chance, but need other results to go their way and a clean sheet in their last 3 games. So really the chase is on for Pulse to overtake the Mystics and host the grand final? Have I got that right?

                                Yep Bird had some snazzy moves tonight.

                                Burger got too caught up with the smash and bash with Tiana, brought the umpire in too much and ended up chasing around doing nothing really.

                                Tactix ended up looking tired after a long week. I rate Elley at WD, not sure why she was taking off?

                                Not a huge fan of Pulse, I think they have a smell of arrogance about them and not liking the man on man defence anyways, but I hope they push ahead of Mystics to just show you can’t rely on one shooter.

                                  Manu’a is a very good chance to make the ferns. 2 Australian accents in the ferns. Fuller doesn’t like the lazy 1 hand pass though.
