JR, the bit about Hinchliffe might just be putting 2 and 2 together and getting 5. I saw an article yesterday from a WA paper where it talked about Hinchliffe joining Ellis in leaving Firebirds. It mentioned that Ellis was set to join Fever, but the way it was written, it would have definitely made some think it was Hinchliffe who was going there too.looloo71184ParticipantSeptember 21, 2021 at 12:01 pmPost count: 4

Austin or Dwan to the vixens!Ian HarkinModeratorSeptember 21, 2021 at 12:08 pmPost count: 15861
Reckon it’s Austin. She’s been my tip for a while.justanothernetballerParticipantSeptember 21, 2021 at 12:12 pmPost count: 6
Literally within minutes of the Kiera Austin announcement on Twitter, directly below that is Vixens have a HUGE signing…. clearly Austin. Giants wouldn’t have announced her departure so soon and it’s in time for Kiera’s announcement at Vixens. So disappointed for the Giants.furballthecatParticipantSeptember 21, 2021 at 12:22 pmPost count: 9
Given that Austin travelled with the Giants throughout her entire rehab and seemed to be such a core part of the team, it has to hurt that she’s leaving. Surely she’s going to the Vixens now. Maybe Dwan to the Giants then?? Or potentially the Thunderbirds, given that they need GA support for Horjus.justanothernetballerParticipantSeptember 21, 2021 at 12:34 pmPost count: 6
It all depends on whether MJ is coming back for Vixens too… that hasn’t been announced. Dwan could be off to Vixens still. Going back to Penny’s post from last week she said Garbin to Pies, Austin to Vixens and maybe Dwan to Vixens. This could make sense. Who the hell knows anymore. Dwan would be great at any of those clubs you mentioned.TBParticipantSeptember 21, 2021 at 12:48 pmPost count: 754
Austin to Fever?
That would be a massive signing for them. To partner with JFR, that would be a very tough combination.justanothernetballerParticipantSeptember 21, 2021 at 1:02 pmPost count: 6
Personally, I hope not. I hope she goes to Vixens. We’ve clearly seen that for the most part playing alongside Fowler weakens the other shooter’s game. ATN has become a better feeder and yes, she puts up more shots (Fowler great for the rebound), but her presence in the circle and the constant offloading (circle feeders only looking for Fowler) has contributed to the weakened game of Glasglow and Stanton.chloeParticipantSeptember 21, 2021 at 1:07 pmPost count: 31
This signing period is so crazy… It’ll be so interesting to see which teams are going to benefit and which ones won’t because so many clubs are loosing players that feel really integral to the team and I wonder how they’ll go fitting into different clubs.KerrynParticipantSeptember 21, 2021 at 1:22 pmPost count: 282
@justanothernetballer I was about to post something similar, I think Fowler is an amazing player, but it seems to have had a real detrimental effect on the GA’s she plays with – along with those you named you could also add Nat Medhurst, and Te Paea Selby Rickett to the listenozlasParticipantSeptember 21, 2021 at 1:23 pmPost count: 512
Why do I have a random feeling Sterling is going to the firebirds?Netballcrazy1ParticipantSeptember 21, 2021 at 1:40 pmPost count: 2253
Wilson back at Thunderbirds for 22/23. Hoping this means Sterling returns but the fact that Garrett and Wilson are both on 2 year contracts makes me suspicious. Losing Sterling would be bad.
