            Interesting to see how the Giants midcourt will go. I find JLP and Pitman to be of similar style. Both tall, strong and powerful players. I feel they need someone who is bit more zippier. I would say Winders would be that player, but shell probably be played at WD a lot.

                Interesting that the vixens don’t have any midcourt TPs and that they didn’t re-sign Sharni Lambden, I wonder why

                  They’ve been training Barkmeyer as a WA / GA slide for the last year.

                  I think it was Lambden’s choice to take a break. She was a TP with Collingwood for a few years and now Vixens for a few years. Got her SSN debut but never really pushed through. It’s a big commitment for $5k. Maybe she will pop up at Mavs where they have less defenders?

                  With the exception of Walters the Fury midcourt wasn’t great at ANC. Walters is the standout young Victorian mid and she has a contract. They’ll have a bunch of the midcourters from the younger age group in Vixens academy. If there is a standout they can be upgraded to TP this year or next.

                  The tip is this is MJ’s last season. Andrew will likely get a contract next year but they’re understandably focused on building shooting depth for that reason. Graham has a beautiful shot and is a great choice imo.

                  Vixens are playing pre season games in NZ at the end of February against both Mystics and Stars. Plus Ballarat Blitz and TGC. Lots of offical pre season games.

                      Still not really sure why they didn’t offer Nelson a contract and Sinclair a TP spot, unless they’re looking for WA cover. Maybe they wouldn’t have been able to get Glasgow/Cardwell over if they knew she was in the 10. Hopefully she gets a bit of court time, she can bring a lot of stability to that shooting end.

                        A Cardwell, Glasgow, Nelson shooting trio would have been pretty much unstoppable.

                          Have I missed an announcement? Mavs Wikipedia has Cardwell (well, actually ‘Caldwell’) listed as captain with Parmy VC. Just someone theorising or inside info?

                              Singleton too, what a journeywoman! She’s now been at Swifts, Collingwood, Lightning and Giants.

                                Interesting that Crampton wasn’t interested/chosen to be the temporary replacement player. She would have been great for the Giants attack end.

                                  Maybe Crampton contacted the Giants after they committed to Pitman. Because she was supposed to be living with her partner in the USA.
