    KD, Shimmin and Hinchliffe as a defensive 3 seems very GK heavy… not sure where the balance is especially if they don’t sign KP. Wouldn’t surprise me if she made a move just to get a bit of a freshness about her as I’ve felt she’s lacked a spark this season and now Maweni not being there she may be inclined to try somewhere new.

    I am now so confused about the FBs defence line, as to who will be the 3rd Giant defender and where KP is…..

    I thought Hinchliffe and Ellis must have left FBs due to the arrival of someone like Dehaney taking the GK bib. But nup. I hope KP isn’t at FBs as that wouldn’t be great for Jenner’s court time.

    Maybe Lightning will have 4 defenders with KP the 4th. After all Hinchliffe will be out for most of the season.

    I wonder what’s going on at FB’s to be honest.. I know nothing about netball in Queensland so won’t pretend this has any sort of merit. But they just lost their emerging goalie, best defender and emerging GK they’ve put a few years in to… on the back of a scandal last season and underperforming this season when expected to be title contenders… anything going on behind the scenes?

    The Firebirds’ list management has been appalling for a number of years.. They don’t appear to have any idea what winning looks like.

    I think one team is holding out for the Roses to be in Australia to make their announcement. Either Fever or Swifts.

    @NB12 great thinking! If Francis heads home, my wish would be for Fever to sign Cobden and move Anstiss to Centre and Charles to WA. Maybe sign a backup Coyler for their midcourt.

    Cobden has been killing it during the Roses tour and her boyfriend is an Aussie 🤷‍♂️

    Yes and possibly Sophie Drakeford Lewis.

    Eg if Fever were announcing SDL, they would need to announce a shooter leaving. And if Swifts were announcing that shooter eg Glasgow, they’d need to wait until Fever have announced she is leaving.

    I think this is why Dan said the other day there are a few things to be worked out before they can make further announcements.

    Yeah when I saw Lewis was suddenly following Vixens last night I was confident it would be her.

    Not sure how to feel about this one. I guess they wanted a circle defender with SSN experience.

    I thought Lewis didn’t look great this year but in her defence it’s hard to get thrown on for 5 minutes here and there and do a whole lot. Also suspect Lewis is moving for the minimum contract after all Vixens have the new Diamonds captain and would have thrown everything at Austin to fix their GA problem.

    I did like what I saw of Lewis in 2019/20 so hopefully the change of scenery helps her return to that level.

    I actually thought Lewis was older than she is. Born in 1999.

    I was very surprised when she made the Australian Development Squad this year. But imagine she was selected more based on her 2019/20 form.

    I expect the first circle change next year for Vixens will be to move Eddy in which is exciting. Moloney is a great WD so let’s see more of that.

    Overall it’s a really strong team and much more balanced than this year.

    So what circle defenders do we have left to fill the GK hole at Giants? Doesn’t really seem that many seasoned 1s left

    Maweni?

    The main defenders not signed are Maweni, Moore, Pretorious, Aryang, Francis….

    Working on Ellis going to Fever which seems set.

    I think or at least hope Bakewell-Doran gets a spot at FBs. More of a GD so Moore going there with Jenner being more of a GD makes sense.
