In 2019, Courtney Bruce got injured and was out for 2 full games. They still had Fowler. In both games, Fever got thrashed and had 80 goals scored against them (before super shots). Mind you, that was also the year they got rid of Nat Medhurst and had Stanton and ATN at GA, so their attack went backwards.
Talking about elbows does any one else remember back in the old ANZ champs when Fowler (then playing for Steel) turned around after she scored a goal and elbowed EUB (then playing for Fever) flat in the face. EUB all but falls to the ground and screams and NZ Umpire Jono totally missed it all, blows his whistle and says “ladies, just get the ball back to the centre quicker please” hahaha wouldve loved to be in the umpires after match review room that day.
