      so stoked the Mary Cholhok got player of the tournament – don’t think anyone else had such a big influence on their team (and she’s just awesome to watch – definitely the potential to be one of the best in the world)

            I don’t think the series was boring, I just think the Aussies could have utilised the potential of the shooters a little more. I too would rather a boring win than an exciting loss Ian!
            Great work from Cholhok, what a star!

                    As a spectator viewing Fast5 is meant to be entertaining including all those unique attributes that come with the shortened game, it has been boring. Aussie def had players who could hit those big shots but decided to play it safe and get a new Trophy.

                    Probably the worst tournament to date if entertainment value and level of netball played and that’s my opinion.

                    Once again I’d like to see the difference from past years with 3s attempted and also 3s made.

                      @Kerryn, I was going to ask @Jen the same thing.

                      I always thought the NZ shooters were an interesting choice apart from Heffernan who is happy to turn and shoot, rather than persist in passing in and out or wanting to shoot from the exact same spot each time.
                      Australia was clearly the best team at the FastFive.
                      Jamaica was disappointing but we should be grateful that at least this time they arrived in NZ on time and with a full squad.
                      Uganda is a team that needs watching closely, I feel they have the potential to get right into the top four.
                      Lastly, is it Peace Proscovia or Proscovia Peace?

                        Kind of funny how the Australians won playing more normal netball when they’re the ones who play in the league with the super shot. Almost as if they have lived experience in knowing that generally, “super shots” don’t win you games.

                            That’s a very astute observation.

                            I thought the Aussies were very hesitant when shooting from range, the flow of their shot seemed interrupted.

                              In the past, there’s been Maria Folau, Ameliaranne Ekenasio, Jo Harten, Rachel Dunn etc. These were all brilliant long-range shooters. There was nobody like that this time. The success rate for 3-pointers wasn’t great, and the teams just didn’t get into that spirit like they did the last time it was played. Maybe it’s a bit like T20 cricket. when it started, it was all hit and giggle and nobody cared that much. Now, there’s still hitting but not much giggling. Everyone takes it really seriously.

                                I also do think there’s still value in the tournament without the “big names”. It seemed like most countries use it as an opportunity to give up and comers international exposure (outside of an U21 WC environment), with the exception of Uganda this time. I like watching it from that angle and I’m sure the countries value the opportunity to get some experience into these players. I don’t think Australia would have picked a different team even if it didn’t basically clash with the England series, for example. But because of the inexperience and the super shots it can be messy netball, which isn’t always great to watch.

                                  I wonder if the changing of the power play made a difference to teams’ attitudes?
