      I have a feeling DNT will still do her rotation thing. I don’t think she is going to show all her cards in this final round game.
      Let’s face it, there is no easy road to the finals.

          Creak and Rowe are impressive. Both accurate shooters.

            1/4 time: Wales 18-10 Barbados

            After a disappointing tournament so far, Barbados were quite competitive in that opening Q. Let’s see if they can continue to improve. Wales still on top though.

              Ian, do you know if the Australian final will be the early or late game on Saturday.

                1/2 time: Wales 34-23 Barbados

                CREAK 12/15
                ROWE 21/24

                BLACKMAN 11/11
                WHARTON 12/15

                Definitely an improved performance from Barbados today, but Wales still with a handy lead. Bethan Dyke 19 assists in a half. Tremendous.

                  The timing of the semis is all reliant on what England does, because they will be placed in the late game. If England wins their game today, then Australia plays them in the semis and that will be the late game. If England loses, Australia plays NZ in the semis and that will be the early game.

                    So impressive from Jamaica – they looked to be getting a bit ragged midway through the second quarter but tidied it up and really focused. In past games, that would have been the point where the wheels came off – but not this time. For someone who plays on Fowler all the time, I’m afraid I though Bruce was dreadful (come at me!): familiarity certainly didn’t give her the inside track on what needed to be done. And that Jamaican unit was so disciplined! Well played Rob Wright.

                    Now to Eng/NZ – it’s a delicious prospect!

                      Okay don’t come at me because I only saw half the game. But seriously, I don’t think there was much else Bruce could do.
                      Rob Wright said in an interview “you can’t stop Fowler, you have to limit everyone else around her” (not his exact words but there abouts).

                        Latonia Blackman putting on a bit of a show for Barbados here. Remember, it’s her SIXTH Commonwealth Games tournament. Makes me tired just thinking about it.

                          3/4 time: Wales 46-33 Barbados

                          Wales safely in front in this one, but it has been far and away the most impressive performance from Barbados in the tournament so far.

                            Anyone know how many times Jamaica has beaten Australia?

                              I wasn’t so disappointed in Bruce losing the one on one contest with Fowler, more that she didn’t come off the body at all and challenge outside the circle. I don’t think she has such a great combination with Weston either, they don’t really work as a unit and when the man on style doesn’t work they look a bit lost. I’d be trying her more with Aryang or bring on Klau to play with Weston (who plays quite similarly to Turner).

                                It’s a shame we didn’t see some of this from Barbados earlier in the tournament. They’ve been much more competitive today, eventually going down by 16 goals. Well played. But Wales takes the win which should see them finish fourth in the group.

                                  I’m happy for Jamaica!! Now sterling and Wilson can bring the winning culture back to the thunderbirds next season.

                                  Also what I noticed, when there was a momentum swing, it felt like the diamonds didn’t know how to react. It’s like they were waiting for a “time out” that never came. Good work Jamaica, this will be good for world netball to see them win gold.
