I hope this puts to rest why Poi has been on the outside of ferns selectionsmcleodParticipantOctober 23, 2022 at 9:50 pmPost count: 1711
The fact that the ferns got within 4 with Poi at WA, when they were down by 7 when she came on shows something. Souness was shocking, but hey keep her own the whole game 20 penalties and a warningNB12ParticipantOctober 23, 2022 at 9:56 pmPost count: 524
It was not because of Poi that NZ got to within 4. A few sprayed balls over the baseline in the Aussie attack got them there. Haha.Netballfan1ParticipantOctober 23, 2022 at 10:04 pmPost count: 282
Poi’s feeding was not good. I don’t think there’s much to argue there? She also failed to find space. Gordon had a shocker q3 and gave away so much ball ( which could have been the decider on the match result)Netfan212ParticipantOctober 23, 2022 at 10:09 pmPost count: 69
Thank god we won those tests back home. Aside from that brain explosion of a third quarter- NZ should have won that game. As a shame. But it’s nice to see them so competitive against the aussies for once. I’ll take a drawn series over our history in the con cup.

This was from before game 4. Some interesting points made…RMBParticipantOctober 24, 2022 at 11:06 amPost count: 239
Would Toeava have enabled to win the game? Don’t get me wrong I’m a huge DNT fan but she won’t admit she’s wrong in not taking her… Im sure she avoided the question about taking Mes to com. Games tooIan HarkinModeratorOctober 24, 2022 at 12:30 pmPost count: 20991
The teams for each leg were already pre-chosen before the series. She wasn’t going to change that and make someone miss out.Ian HarkinModeratorOctober 24, 2022 at 12:30 pmPost count: 20991enozlasParticipantOctober 24, 2022 at 7:00 pmPost count: 534
Maybe I’m just mesmerized by DNT but I honestly think if she cared more about winning than trialing players NZ would’ve taken the cup back home with them. I feel like they only lost because her priority is WC.
Every time they lose I feel like it’s purely because she doesn’t want to show her strongest hand and she’s also ensuring she sees every combination that she feels she needs to before picking the best team for the major tournaments.StatsNerd21ParticipantOctober 24, 2022 at 7:36 pmPost count: 477
Some good point enzolas- however I wonder why didn’t she give Mila a run in NZ? One game definitely showcased the amazing Toeava-Nweke connection and it would’ve been really nice to give Mila a run, especially as she almost cracked the CWG team.
