Sunshine Coast Lightning announced Peace and Phumza not returning in 2022.Ian HarkinModeratorSeptember 4, 2021 at 3:24 pmPost count: 15821
NetballCrazy1… It is very confusing, isn’t it? I think what I worked out is that they’ve put the word “average” in the wrong place. It should go AFTER the words minimum and maximum, not before. If you do that, it makes sense. So this is what I think the case is…
Salary cap: $740,000 plus up to $175,000 in extra money that can be added on. So, the minimum average salary is $74,000 and the maximum average salary is $91,500.sami jParticipantSeptember 4, 2021 at 3:36 pmPost count: 95
Ooo maybe Dehaney to lightning? If CBass doesn’t get a starting spot somewhere I could see her returning to lightning as an impact playerNetballcrazy1ParticipantSeptember 4, 2021 at 4:08 pmPost count: 2253
Thanks Ian, that makes more sense. So players can be making more than the $91,500 which is a good sign.
No Proscovia or Maweni. Wow, I wonder if they’re headed back to the UK or something else. I wouldn’t mind seeing Bassett (if she can rehab back to form) and Dehaney at Lightning.NB12ParticipantSeptember 4, 2021 at 4:38 pmPost count: 452
I’ve heard Sterling might be headed for some sunshine.TBParticipantSeptember 4, 2021 at 5:04 pmPost count: 754
Huge pickup for Lightning if they got Sterling.
I agree with above comment, CBass would be a good impact player. I also think if she comes back fully fit, that’ll be some healthy competition within the team.PICASSO123ParticipantSeptember 4, 2021 at 5:10 pmPost count: 155
Shamera can’t cope without a Jamaican hence why the Wilson signing this season. So i can’t see her heading to Lightning. However, Dehaney would make a good replacement at Lightning. So Hunt, Maweni and Proscovia are gone, so that’s 3 spots up for grabs at Lightning.NB12ParticipantSeptember 4, 2021 at 5:14 pmPost count: 452
You’re telling me Thunderbirds recruited a player just to make Sterling feel better? What a ludicrous suggestion.PICASSO123ParticipantSeptember 4, 2021 at 5:31 pmPost count: 155
NB12 I’m not lying!!! I watched an interview of Wilson back in Jamaica and she stated that Sterling helped in her signing. We also know Sterling has stated that she feels homesick ALOT and that she has felt lonely throughout her first two seasons at the Tbirds. Also, Wilson is a really good player by the way, but part of her signing which was suggested by Sterling to Tania was due to keeping Sterling accompanied and less homesick 🤷♂️PICASSO123ParticipantSeptember 4, 2021 at 5:33 pmPost count: 155
I’m not taking away from Wilson being an amazing player but Sterling just cannot cope with homesickness hence why Wilson was the perfect fit 🤷♂️PICASSO123ParticipantSeptember 4, 2021 at 5:35 pmPost count: 155
Go and listen to Romeldas story, no different from Sterling. Both cried tons in private when they first made the transition to Australia.MaryannParticipantSeptember 4, 2021 at 5:43 pmPost count: 956blondebombParticipantSeptember 4, 2021 at 5:44 pmPost count: 41
I might be alone here, but I am secretly pleased that some overseas talent isn’t returning, chance for some Aussie girls to shine! Like to see some overseas shooters returning home so we can use home grown talent. Dont get me wrong im ok with imports I just think the Aussie talent is not getting a chance to shineNetballcrazy1ParticipantSeptember 4, 2021 at 5:50 pmPost count: 2253
@blondebomb, you just gotta hope that those overseas players aren’t replaced with other overseas players.
Regarding Sterling, I think she is staying in Adelaide. She reposted an article on Instagram that was about why re-signing her should be a point of priority for the Thunderbirds. I do see the potential that other cities could be more lucrative but she seems to be settled in Adelaide for now, despite her homesickness.
