      It’s hard to read too much into this match, but I think Cardwell has been much more impressive at GS than Harten. Francis-Bayman and Guscoth have also been great. I’m not sure England has ever had such a deep 12.

      T&T have been disappointing. Obviously it’s a huge challenge not having Wallace and McCollin, but there have been a lot of basic errors.

        This T&T side would be so different with Sam Wallace. The defence end are winning back ball, but the attack are just not gelling. Cardwell is having a great game and is definitely showing why the Thunderbirds signed her.

          IMHO Sophie Drakeford-Lewis has been quite impressive, I haven’t always rated her but I thought she provided solid options and good movement, especially in GA. Obviously this game isn’t a true reflection, but still.
          T&T missing Wallace for sure. Such a shame 🙁

            Well Malawi was three goals away from making the medal rounds in 2018 @Nate so I’m not really sure that’s true. The issue isn’t having 12 teams, it’s the fact that we don’t have the best 12 teams at this competition.

                  Diamonds line up exactly what I’d expect… except for Moloney over Hadley?

                      There must be a rule that people with the last name of Bruce play GK.

                        Moloney starting at C surprises me, but I guess Stacey won’t be looking to reveal all her cards too early either so could be strategic

                          Stacey’s always been a big fan of Moloney. She got a lot of court time during the Constellation Cup when Proud and Hadley weren’t even named in the 12s. I wouldn’t be surprised to see her in the starting 7 across the tournament.

                            Always so hard to gauge in these sort of games but Bueta looks immense.

                              Bueta is so much stronger at GS than GA in my opinion. All of the skill and athleticism without the turnovers. Completely dominant.

                                  That’s exactly what I’ve always thought al_ex. Always wanted to see Bueta at GS rather than GA.
