      surely scl wont be able to fit RAG and wouldnt drop bell or batcheldor.

      slightly dissapointing to see Tbirds not chase after the back to back premiership if both caldwell and dwan leave it will surely be hard for them to have a formidable team with a lack of goal attacks available.

      however i think wallam dwan and macy gardner would make for a strong addition into the firebirds starting seven and be potential to build a diamonds worth combination

        I’m sure Thunderbirds would do everything in their power to keep Dwan and Cardwell but I think it was always going to happen once Dwan’s partner chose not to transfer over to Adl and then bought a house with her back home. Was just a matter of time.

          Oh I don’t think RAG is going to SCL. Just saying they were in discussions at some point and they stalled. FBs were trying to get Batcheldor back early on. So my guess is RAG was an option if Batcheldor left but she is probably staying?

          Batcheldor is a superstar imo. If she comes back fit and strong then I really think she will be a diamond in 12-18 months. Learning from Wood and building a combination with Koenen and Watson is the best place for her imo but we will find out in time.

          Any team could afford RAG. She would have been on a low contract at swifts as a TP then PRP. So cap wouldn’t be a problem, it’s a more an opportunity for her to play at this point I think.

          The other thing I heard was that FBs are in discussions with a tall international GK. It’s not Klau so maybe Dehaney? I don’t know. Who else would fit that description?

            Code has also indicated that Pretorius will miss out for SCL this signing.

              I suppose some people have to be pushed out of that SCL lineup to fit Bruce in the salary cap. Would Pretorius want to go elsewhere in SSN?

              A back line of Bruce, Ervin and Hinchliffe would be more than solid.

                Lightning also seem not to be resigning – Pretorius,Dehaney,Hinchcliffe,Miller,Scherian n Ervin. I call that a major clean out. In is – Koenan, Wood, Ava Black, Cassidy, Watson, Bruce. Also reported some interest in RAG but where does that leave Charlie Bell n Bacheldor?

                  My post should also read out is – Scherian n Miller.
                  6 players not wanted.

                    Have not heard much about any of the Giants players apart from Parmenter leaving to go to SEN. Interesting, I wonder what their plans are in terms of recruitment…

                      Giants need a strong defence end as this has been their weakness since they debut. I’d grab Ward and maybe look at another shooting option as Harten might not last another SSN season without injury impacting her.

                        Is Code Sports a reliable article or not? Like I have noticed Watson is only following the Vixens and Lightning and then the rumours but is it actually going to be true?

                          Gee I hope Hinchliffe can find a home then! Too much talent to not be on a list, despite the injuries.

                            I thought Hinchliffe was staying with Lightning?

                            I wonder if Giants would consider signing Annie Miller? Sounds like it could be between her and Scherian for the final midcourt position at Lightning.

                            I also wonder if Thunderbirds would sign Nyah Allen considering that she is a South Australian?

                              I’m hoping Allen gets a spot at Fever- Fowler, Stower and Allen could be a strong combo, even though the GAs are young.

                              I love D-fencr’s suggested Lightning defence end- very promising and all good ball-winners. Might be too GK-centred though.

                              Would Kate Walsh consider coming out of retirement? She’s still playing in the SA league and could be an experienced stopgap for the Fever just one state over. I doubt it, but it’s an option.

                              I can’t believe Cardwell would leave Thunderbirds after that season, but it’s looking more and more likely.

                                If Aiken goes to SCL, I can see Batchledor taking Dwans spot if she leaves.

                                Out of all the teams Tbirds should have the most money to spend to recruit and keep good talent. Their team is still very young and won’t cost as much as the more experienced players.

                                I believe there is still hope for Dwan and Cardwell to stay, who wouldn’t want to go for back to back premierships. To leave for a team that is unknown and one that is bottle of the table.
                                If Dwan is serious about Diamonds and her career she needs to stay at Tbirds.

                                  Also has anyone else noticed the vixens promos don’t have Liz Watson in them.
