Did anyone else notice there was no aerial/birdseye camera shots over the weekend. Nor goal post cam.
I’m happy there wasn’t, msg e Foxtel listened to some negative feedback regarding these camera anglessami jParticipantMarch 27, 2022 at 9:29 pmPost count: 86
In 2019 I rated Glasgow ahead of Koenen and Garbin then she did her knee and didn’t get much court time at tbirds but if she continues to play like she did today I could see her in diamonds probably not comm games but she could be there at the end of the yearShooter TamaraParticipantMarch 28, 2022 at 4:10 amPost count: 27
All 3 had great games Dwyer Samason and Wallam, maybe just me but everyone seems to slot in playing with Bueta, so very goodcolinParticipantMarch 28, 2022 at 9:29 amPost count: 9
Realistically, who can the Swifts signs as a replacement player for Sam Wallace?Ian HarkinModeratorMarch 28, 2022 at 10:03 amPost count: 14666K2ParticipantMarch 28, 2022 at 10:43 amPost count: 78
Garbin and Koenan have benefited from not having that much pressure or competition for their Diamonds squad spots over the last few years – between Austin getting injured and Bueta’s pregnancy and the general lack of Australian shooters in SSN. Now there is an absolute glut of talented shooters coming through or who are back in form – Wallam if they want a target GS; Samason, Dwyer, Glasgow if they want a GA who can also play a moving GS; Horjus, Dwan and Sinclair for a true GA option (although I think these three are still a little way off the others). Exciting!Cb98ParticipantMarch 28, 2022 at 11:35 amPost count: 52
Agree about Garbin and Koenan – Koenan got smashed at Quad Series, and Garbin is too inconsistent at club level. Garbin is a great impact player but hasn’t done well when she’s been in the starting seven.
I’d put Horjus above Dwan and Sinclair based on playmaking, feeding, and her also playing WA. I would love to see Wallam at CWG, but I don’t think she’ll have enough time to make her case. Maybe Samason and Dwyer? Samason was unstoppable at TGC, and Dwyer completely outplayed Turner in the swifts vs Giants game.Cb98ParticipantMarch 28, 2022 at 11:46 amPost count: 52
I’m honestly stumped. Ideally they need someone experienced, but CBass said her knees are still wrecked. Based on the firebirds rumours Folau is open to coming back, but hopefully the swifts have taken note of that debacle and will steer clear.
Laura Towell and Sophie fawns are the shooter training partners – Towell did okay at TGC given the situation but the pressure got to her, Fawns had a decent bit of preseason exposure but I don’t think any of those games were streamed soNetballcrazy1ParticipantMarch 28, 2022 at 12:05 pmPost count: 2227
Very exciting to see that attacking end get more competitive for the Diamonds. I’d definitely have Glasgow over Garbin but that’s more end of the year. The selectors and SM will be too scared to throw too many untested players into the CWG squad. Right now, I’d go with Wood and Bueta for sure. If Wallam can stay consistent, her as well. I guess Koenan will probably be selected but I reckon she will have way more competition for her spot by the end of the year. Unfortunately, not sure there’s enough time for some of the GA’s to make their case for CWGs.
Where did CBass say her knees are still wrecked? Shame if they can’t nab here. Maybe Folau since she’s open to returning? My opinion on her probably contrasts a lot of others but by all accounts, her past teammates have all liked her despite any other off-court issues.
Not a lot of experienced shooters are available, maybe someone like Austin? I know she’s young but she fits the mold of a holding shooter.nanatorParticipantMarch 28, 2022 at 12:47 pmPost count: 202
I know Latu is signed to a VNSL team but she’d be great to watch in that swifts attack end.nanatorParticipantMarch 28, 2022 at 12:48 pmPost count: 202
But I’m sure there’s some young shooters out there. Whats Brice doing? She helped the Giants make Finals before C Bass replaced herNetballcrazy1ParticipantMarch 28, 2022 at 1:05 pmPost count: 2227
Pretty sure she’s playing VNLTullyParticipantMarch 28, 2022 at 1:11 pmPost count: 1300
Brice is actually playing VNL for Casey Demons. Don’t know if that’s permanent though or just covering for Ryde?
@Netballcrazy1 Bassett was on the 4th quarter podcast where she spoke about her knees forcing her into retirement. But she did say something along the lines of coming out of retirement if there was ever a huge injury, may have been a joke? Shame that Bassett didn’t take up the original offer of a TP spot at Swifts because then she would have done a preseason whereas now would she have the fitness and conditioning given the status of her knees?TBParticipantMarch 28, 2022 at 3:00 pmPost count: 704
@Tully I think I’ve seen that same interview of CBass. I’m pretty sure she said, she didn’t take up the TP for Swifts because she needs to be playing. So instead she was going to train with NSW Mens team, cause they’d give her the intensity and physical-ness she needs to playing against.
The interview I saw came out before she announced her retirement. So not too sure how long it’s been since her last training session.
A player that comes to mind, but I doubt would be available is Peace Proscovia (sp?). I reckon she’d slot in well with Swifts.
