      She deleted her post, but when asked about it, she doubled down. But yes, it was misinformation anyway. That day has been held on Mar 31 for 15 years, so it wasn’t Biden putting it on that day. It just happens that it fell on Easter this year and all the conservative wackos blamed him for something that was just a coincidence and it seems like she fell for it.

          Agree.

          It’s unfortunate, but these are the standards all athletes are held to and netball players are no different. I am sure she will receive the right coaching, make a statement in line with the values of the organisation and league and learn from this.

                      Giants going for a steady lineup whereas Swifts are still experimenting. Starting lineups:

                      GIANTS
                      GS Harten
                      GA Dwyer
                      WA Pitman
                      C Price
                      WD Winders
                      GD Ward
                      GK McDonell

                      Swifts
                      GS Wallace
                      GA Fawns
                      WA Hadley
                      C Gorman-Brown
                      WD Turner
                      GD Klau
                      GK Temu

                      Good close game so far.

                        22-20 at quarter time to Giants, who are now up 5-1 in the second quarter after some miscommunication between Hadley and Proud.

                          The Giants super shot defence has been somewhat lacklustre- nobody coming between circle edge and Wallace, and even Housby is getting the ball very easily.

                          Giants up 38-37 at half time, it’s raining super shots from all four shooters with pretty excellent accuracy!

                            Teams don’t HAVE to use the 11th player- Giants are currently adamant that they will not fill that spot. Swifts are not planning to use it but are still deciding.

                              Giants dominate the third quarter to lead 59-49. O’Brien had a brilliant quarter and Ward is in amazing form, and when you combine that with some misses from Fawns, the super shot period slipped away pretty quickly.

                                Giants only just hold on 71-70.

                                  Certainly a level of physicality worthy of a derby… lots of contests, some scary to watch including Proud reaching for her knee, but she’s thankfully okay.

                                  Even Sophie Dwyer the ice queen is getting in on it, absolutely shoving her way through Klau but still getting the penalty in her favour thanks to shooters’ privilege haha. Everyone is giving just as good as they’re getting!

                                  Giants can’t quite pull off the manipulation of the clock that the Swifts are so good at, but O’Brien comes through with a win to cap off a great outing! Brilliant finish, Giants take it 71-70.

                                  Letherbarrow was very solid in the second half but nobody was confident to feed her, even when home alone. Winders was strong defensively but she just isn’t a WA.

                                  For the Swifts, I liked LGB’s starting quarter in C but the midcourt was actually uncharacteristically disjointed. Klau looks to be in for a good season, and Fawns had good movement but did miss a few.

                                  Harten’s knee has no strapping and her minutes aren’t limited, glad to see her body is holding on. Her movement is just as slick as ever!
