      From what you’ve witnessed in the preseason who do you all think will end up on top and who will struggle?

      My ladder prediction

      Vixens
      Fever
      Swifts
      Thunderbirds
      Magpies
      Lightening
      Firebirds
      Giants

      Vixens will finish top, thunderbirds and magpies will battle for 4th spot.
      Firebirds and Giants will struggle this year.

        Hmm.
        Fever fan here so perhaps the number one spot is hopeful?

        Fever
        Lightning
        Vixens
        Swifts
        Thunderbirds
        Firebirds
        Collingwood
        Giants

        But I also think this year could see some really exciting upsets and some really exciting new combinations.

          Based on what we saw at the team girls cup and what pre-season games I saw of the teams I almost completely agree with you @netballgirl

          Except I think maybe lightning above magpies to fight it out with Tbirds for 4th spot.

              Fever
              Lightning
              Thunderbirds
              Firebirds
              Giants
              Magpies

              Top 3 I am more confident in.
              Number 4 and 5 could go either way.
              6, 7 and 8 and left to fight out the wooden spoon.

                Results of Team Girls preseason comp
                Vixens
                Fever
                T’Birds
                Lightning
                F’Birds
                Magpies
                Giants
                Swifts

                Interesting three of five posters here don’t have T’Birds in the final 4.

                I think

                Vixens (not just for Team Girls, but that they won both games against each of Giants and T’Birds in preseason games)
                Fever (so many dominant players)
                Swifts (such a strong team)
                T’Birds (great to watch in Team Girls comp)
                Lightning (loss of Karla)
                Magpies (just don’t click together consistently enough)
                F’Birds (loss of players)
                Giants (loss of defenders)

                But with so much Covid still around, goodness knows.

                  I put them fifth as I think they’ll just miss out on a finals gig. Will be super close though and a fight for 4/5. Dehaney, hinchliffe and Walsh will dominate

                    Swifts
                    Vixens
                    Fever
                    Magpies
                    Firebirds
                    Lightning
                    Thunderbirds
                    Giants

                    Feels weird to have Tbirds low after TGC but I just don’t think they will know how to use Dwan and Horjus and be effective enough to win tight games
                    Same thing with Lightning. With T Hinchliffe back they now have a headache of Dehaney, Walsh and Hinchliffe in the circle and they didn’t rotate well enough in shooting circle last season with Proscovia so not sure they can do it in the defence end this year
