Ian, with 3 Stoopid shots for each team, does that mean the difference in the scores would be the same?
Or is the issue Lightning’s strategy of relying on Stoopid shots not working for them….that is their choice …and two Diamonds shooters should know better…..or is it that Sterling and Wilson doing such a great job of spooking them…Ian HarkinModeratorMay 7, 2022 at 8:32 pmPost count: 15861
Yeah, the difference isn’t in the super shots scored. It’s all the attempts missed. Lightning now 3/14!
Wood’s shooting is just not on today, unfortunately. Thunderbirds are going to hold on here.Ian HarkinModeratorMay 7, 2022 at 8:38 pmPost count: 15861
Full time. A good win away from home for Thunderbirds. 51-44. Lightning’s shooting accuracy was just 62% overall and only 27% from super-shot territory.D-fencrParticipantMay 7, 2022 at 8:44 pmPost count: 174
Hard to believe that Lightning is the same Lightning that beat the Vixens a few weeks ago. You never know what version is going to turn up.enozlasParticipantMay 7, 2022 at 8:44 pmPost count: 512
A settled attack line really helped the Tbirds tonight. Horjus brings Potgeiter in to the game so well. Feel for Dwan but she just hasn’t gelled with Potgeiter so I don’t think she’ll see much more court time if the Tbirds want to stay competitive.Ian HarkinModeratorMay 7, 2022 at 8:46 pmPost count: 15861

Lightning had 13 more attempts at goal. And lost by 7.
Another crazy stat… Thunderbirds gave away 82 penalties (to Lightning’s 45) and 30 general play turnovers (to Lightning’s 21). And still won. We can’t really recall a winning team with numbers like that before.netballgirlParticipantMay 7, 2022 at 9:23 pmPost count: 95
Now the question is, do the thunderbirds need tippah moving forward?TullyParticipantMay 7, 2022 at 9:25 pmPost count: 1325
TBirds should keep Tippah. Also promote Austin and drop McDonald. Dwan is a good GA who needs time to work into the structures of the team. Still has plenty to offer the team.netballgirlParticipantMay 7, 2022 at 9:35 pmPost count: 95
I was thinking the same, though if Georgia is GA and Nakerville isn’t doing well as WA, what other options do they have?thunder123ParticipantMay 7, 2022 at 9:42 pmPost count: 467
For once I think Tania obst made the right changes and didn’t lose the game with poor choices.Netballcrazy1ParticipantMay 7, 2022 at 10:04 pmPost count: 2253
Random note but I really think Thunderbirds (and all SSN teams) should post more game clips. They don’t have to be long but you can see how successful it is for NBL/NBA. Would be good for these clips to be on the netball live app too when you click on the game. Similar to the NBA app where when you click on a match, you can see the relevant clips and they are usually added throughout the game.enozlasParticipantMay 7, 2022 at 10:23 pmPost count: 512
After some very infuriating weeks, I agreed with all of her moves today. A welcome surprise.
I also think Tippah, Horjus and Austin could be the future of the Tbirds attack end if they were able to get decent court time and form some connections. Potgeiter plays a very unorthodox game and is quite 1 dimensional so whilst her and Horjus have grown together over the years I can see how it’s been hard for Dwan to slot in. Austin is a lot more traditional in her style so would be easier to build a connection with.WaylayParticipantMay 7, 2022 at 10:59 pmPost count: 263
Biggest stat from today.. Lara Dunkley vs her WD opponent
Eddy played 22 mins on Lara Dunkley – Dunkley had 17 assists in that time.
Moloney played 38 mins on Lara Dunkley – Dunkley only had 9 assists in that time.
Moloney absolutely took Dunkley out of the game, hence the Vixens second half comeback. Great tactical change up from Di Honey. Credit must also go to Hannah Money who came on beautifully and had great touch on the pass
