      Koenen plays the baseline better than Bueta, on a good feed Koenen is close to unstoppable.

      The change up that Koenen brings is the one that moves Bueta forward. Not as smart as Wood but hard to stop the sweep when you are worried about Koenen opening up on the baseline.

        @nesian & @Kwkiwi great discussion but don’t forget DNT made it clear from the start that she didn’t have a starting 7 but she has a style of play based on the strengths of her players. I think she had a few things she wanted to try and she & Debs will be going over the tapes to see what worked.

        @nanator I predicted an AUS/JAM final, but I assumed the diamonds would have 12 fit players. The Roses/Diamonds game is going to be high intensity, whoever wins may not have much left in the tank for the final :unsure:

          @enozlas I 100% agree! NZ and Aus have a lot of improving (more so NZ), they haven’t played a full 60mins.
          Timing is everything. I am saving comments/views for after the semis (it’s the whole “if I say it, it won’t happen” curse I’m worried about ?).

            Cant help to think that the Worlds next year eill have yet anpther different looking team playing.

            Potential if they all pass fitness is that
            Defence: watson, burger and temu to slide on in.
            Midcourt: Maddy Gordon or even a winders/kersten purely for wd and have heffernan run c?
            Attack: Ekenasio, Dunn and maybe Tiana?

              I don’t think heffernan is the answer for NZ at C. She’s a bit like Maloney where she’s fantastic in defense but just not strong enough in attack and it shows.

                I really hope to see Dunn make a pinnacle event. I hope she makes the fitness requirements, and makes that WC team!

                I wonder if at Pulse next year, we’ll see Souness used more at C? That will push Gordon WA, which I think would be a great thing for her and her chances to making the WC team.

                Ekenasio will be a HUGE boost.

                  @enozlas didn’t Langham have that problem when she first joined the Ferns B-)

                    @minkie I was surprised that Mes wasn’t used at all too. Her height and athletiscm at WA, could have helped things out. But I think what was really missing, was that midcourt defensive pressure. She is extremely good on defence. I think the same could be said for Bueta when she’s out at GA. They both have strong defence pressure, are renowned for picking up ball early.

                      I keep thinking of the 2019 WC. DNT had a plan for the first game against Aus which meant NZ didn’t play 100% and had extra plays in reserve for the final. Did the same think happen in the match against Eng??

                      I didn’t think souness was as quick and I couldn’t see the usual zone :scratch:

                        Question: have we ever had this line up in a major netball competition before? If so when

                          The same SFs were played at CWG 2010. Of course it was Australia and NZL that finished first in their pools then.

                            Heffernan will be playing alongside Winders next year. I think the balance between the two could work effectively. Winders being that nuggety, short quick player combined with Heffernans height, reach and speed will be great to watch.

                              TB, just weird
                              Abit worrying too
                              If this was Noel’s chosen 7
                              Blimmin heck

                                Agreed @minkie.

                                Especially when both Crampton and Saunders have been lacking the whole tournament. Mes eyes first into the circle couldve been crucial.

                                Hard to find a reason to Noel’s game plans atm. I can see similarities to the 2019 nwc but sheesh this def aint the same calibre of team tbh (and thats nothing against this current team).

                                For me personally im struggling to have confidence on any set part of the court. Like this shooter is gonna dominate or this defender is gonna get that intercept thatll turn the game, if that makes sense??
