      I’m wondering why they played Johnson at WD instead of GD? Yet she’s used as a GD for Ferns.

        Pulse could have won that game. Jury got them a lot of turnover ball that they failed to convert.Dunn rock solid at the back. Must be up there with the top 3 GS in NZ. Thought the Mystics got away with several held balls at crucial times which could have tipped the game the Pulse’s way if called correctly.

        Great game by the Steel, love watching Saunders her foot speed is amazing. Johnson couldn’t contain her. I’m sure Fisher will be playing in the Suncorp league at some stage. She’s going from strength to strength.

        Wish the Sky Sport NZ coverage wouldn’t keep showing the coaches so much. Missing half the game crossing over to them and also having that coverage with a small box in the corner of the screen showing their faces which obscures the court. If anything Sky need to sharpen up on their replays of intercepts, umpire calls etc showing them in the breaks of play NOT during the live play. That would be more interesting to see. They need to watch some of the NBA coverage.

          @mcleod the WA for the Magic agree is a mess, why put Winders there? youre either a C & WA or a C & WD. Everyone had high hopes for MJ but i dont think she thought this one out very well…

            @kwkiwi Jury nailed the turn over ball, felt kinda bad for her everyone kept telling her shes the same height do more!
            Good to see Saunders redeem herself from last week even she admitted she had a bad game. Love Dunns shooting, shame she couldnt of done more time in the black dress but i heard rumours of fitness levels

                Does anybody else really wish Dunn would make the Ferns over Wilson? IMO Dunn is so strong on the hold and is so relaxed when she shoots and accurate, whereas Wilson looks so hesitant whenever she shoots. I know who I would pick as my two Ferns GS, Dunn and Nweke.

                  @moooz I’m a bit conflicted with Dunn.
                  Based on performances, I think she definitely should be in the black dress.
                  But on the flip side, if she is unable to hit standard fitness tests (if that’s the reason why she’s missing out), I can understand why she keeps getting left out.

                  Looks can be deceiving, but I was quite surprised that Ellie Bird was hitting fitness standards, and Dunn wasn’t.
                  *Btw I don’t know if that’s the reason why she keeps missing out. I’m going off what I’ve read on here.

                    Bench – Cable-Dixon, Reekers, Rowland, Ridling

                    I didn’t even consider Cable-Dixon was in the mix or know that she was still interested in playing at this level following the birth of her daughter and moving to the far reaches of Waikato.

                            I’ll have to watch this one. I am a fan of ACD glad they’ve bought her back on, and she’s an actual WA.

                              Magic played well for 2 and a half quarters then the wheels fell off. Positives, good to see Mels play a full half at GA and Mes is still doing great things.

                              Negatives, midcourt is still not clicking and defence is just not there when you need it.

                              Tactix played as how tactix usually plays nothing spectacular but gets it done.

                              Tactix also got umpired back into the game, defence circle is very dirty.

                              Great first half to watch as both teams were evenly matched across the court. Last quarter was background noise whilst making dinner… I hope Magic don’t end up like last year with first round win then disappointment the rest of the comp and Tactix go from losing so much they can’t make the final to winning everything up till the final. 🙄

                              Also didn’t know Bird was the tallest player in the league.

                                  When was the last time we saw Mes put 30+ goals up in a game? She’s playing with a lot of freedom. Long may it continue!
