      Magic got hesitant and weren’t letting the ball go.
      It was a good game to watch!

        I agree that the Magic tightened up in the end. Watson absolutely shut down Tui in the first half however the Magic were able to use ball-speed and angles to get Tui into the game. Takarangi will surely be recalled into the Ferns if she can keep up this performance – but will her height rule her out of the Ferns inevitably? Otherwise, I thought it was an outrageous send-off of O’Brien at the end there! If anything, Lokotui was the one causing the dangerous play with her (successful) intercept.

        A really great round of games, with turnovers being caused by pressure rather than unforced errors. Noticing the Pulse, Mystics and Tactix seem to be employing more one-on-one defense, especially in the midcourt. I’m all for teams bringing in experienced ‘ring-ins’ as it improves the quality of the league – if newcomers are good enough, they will break through.

          I appreciate the Mystics are trying to blood in new GKs but I think they need to go to Karaka GK/MSB GD in the meantime. Either that, or stick with one and let them grow into the game.

            @museboy interestingly Takarangi is listed as 1.83m and Jane Watson 1.81m. Agree, she is showing early signs of the consistent form she had in 2021. I think the move up the court was hard for her, but being a viable option in both GD and GK will only improve her Ferns prospects.

              Ekenasio is so much better, when she is shooting goals, and no passing to Nweke.
