        Wow what a wasted opportunity there for Australia. Klau needs to come on I think, and Diamonds attack just absolutely stuck in attack right now.

          SM’s unwillingness to bench Bruce might be Australia’s undoing for the next few years…

            Definitely time to bring Klau on, I don’t think Bruce has any more tricks up her sleeve to deal with Cardwell. Come on Aussies, hold on!!!!

              That pop from Cardwell is working so well for England, Diamonds defence have had no answer to that.

                Assuming Australia win this, I wonder if they’ll start with the same 7 who lost to Jamaica for the GF

                    Will be interesting to see which of Aus/Jam can run out the gold medal match, both teams played essentially the same 7 in their semi’s and match against each other so will be some very tired bodies.

                      I think Australia will (and should) start with this 7, I just hope there’s a willingness to make changes if needed. And a better defensive strategy.

                      I’ve seen talk about Klau being injured so doesn’t seem like she’s as much of an option as usual unfortunately.

                      Great to see the Diamonds withstand the pressure tonight!

                        Well done to the Diamonds who worked through the tough moments but do I think they can afford these types of errors tomorrow? No. Jamaica will convert fast on every single one of those turnovers so it will be interesting to see the positions tomorrow, especially considering the exhaustion some of these players must be feeling.

                          What a dominant attacking performance from the Diamonds. England just had no answers, similar to the Ferns against Jamaica. If they can play with that speed and consistency it feels like they will get over the Jamaicans. A thrilling final though, it will be one of the most athletic finals we’ve ever had.

                          With Bueta playing this well do we see her push Wallam to the bench at F’Birds? I guess we’ll have to see the form of Stower.

                            I hope Klau isn’t injured – although it would explain not bringing her on tonight.

                            I have questioned the selection of Moloney and I am so glad she played well tonight.

                            Strange tournament where the Diamonds and SF won’t play each other!

                              I wonder how England will bounce back tomorrow. After losing at the death to the Ferns in 2014 they put out a really poor match against Jamaica. They played well against RSA in 2019 though after missing out on the Gold Medal match. I think they’ll be more down than the Ferns and will have less time to recover, it should be interesting to see.

                                I think for Bueta to shine at GS she needs a strong GA and C/WA ala Diamonds standard and that’s why you won’t see her there as much in SSN.

                                Well done Diamonds, the two top teams of the tournament have made the final. I hope the Diamonds get gold but I wouldn’t be too upset to see the Jamaicans celebrating their first ever Gold.

                                  I think Australia will reverse the result from yesterday and win gold. Jamaica have played brilliantly, but Australia showed their still the worlds best. They won’t let this slip.
                                  As for the bronze- i really can’t see how NZ are suppose to medal. 1 bad performance fine it happens, 2 in a row, there’s a pattern emerging. It will absolutely shock me now if they come away with a win.

                                  Here’s the thing with England, Jamaica and Australia, aside from one or two exceptions, they’ve picked the best players they possibly could have. These squads are likely gonna be unchanged come WC. NZ, half the team is at home watching this horror show ?
                                  For them it’s really whether to they have enough time to form those connections. Even if the ferns win bronze (which they won’t), half this team gone by the end of the campaign. Good riddance
