Hmmm, was really thinking there was some great Australian shooting talent up for grabs that Collingwood could’ve signed (Glasgow, Hodges, Garbin, Allen, Stanton or even shooters who are playing ANL)but hopefully this strengthens their attack for next season.Ian HarkinModeratorOctober 20, 2020 at 11:03 amPost count: 18743
Team so far…

Collingwood has bid farewell to goal-defender Matilda Garrett who will not be offered a contract in 2021.
Thank you and all the best for your next chapter, Tilly!

This indicates to me that Collingwood will either promote a TP or sign Shimmin. Shimmin and Mentor could be an interesting combination since they both represent England but they are both best at GK.NettySuperFanParticipantOctober 26, 2020 at 11:23 amPost count: 265
Its a shame, I hope she can get a contract somewhere else, although its unlikely. Her only option is Lightning, but if she’s only just found out recently, she may have missed the boat for that one.TullyParticipantOctober 26, 2020 at 11:31 amPost count: 1428
Thunderbirds and Lightning need an extra defender.
I don’t think Magpies are promoting a TP. If they were going to do that then they would have already known that. But they’ve only just decided or at least only just communicated this to Garrett which makes me think they’ve picked someone up from elsewhere.Netballcrazy1ParticipantOctober 26, 2020 at 11:50 amPost count: 2265
Yeah, I doubt it will be a TP, I think it would more likely be Shimmin. Unfortunately for Garrett, I don’t see her getting a contract this late for 2021. Doesn’t make sense for the Thunderbirds to sign Garrett over Shimmin (although some of their decisions never make sense) and I think if Lightning can’t lure a more experienced defender, they will resolve to promoting a TP. So Garrett could be another player to miss out on a contractIan HarkinModeratorNovember 2, 2020 at 11:30 amPost count: 18743
The last two signings are Mel Bragg and Jacquie Newton.
Jacquie Newton?Netballcrazy1ParticipantNovember 2, 2020 at 11:58 amPost count: 2265
Newton has been a Vixens TP for a few years now, since 2018. Made her debut last year I think?Netballcrazy1ParticipantNovember 2, 2020 at 12:12 pmPost count: 2265
Good to see Bragg rewarded for her season.Ian HarkinModeratorNovember 2, 2020 at 12:12 pmPost count: 18743
I know who she is. I’m just saying they got rid of Garrett for her? They got rid of one local defender who spent most of her time on the bench to sign another local defender who will spend most of her time on the bench. It’s hardly an earth shattering signing that is going to send the Magpies up the ladder.BeccaParticipantNovember 2, 2020 at 5:05 pmPost count: 4
Yay we know who the contracted ten are. Now it’s just time to announce the coach. Do we know if Kate Upton and Nicole Richardson are still the assistant coaches? I rate Richardson. The Magpies defence end were definitely the shining light of season 2020. I found Upton to be too dominant in the time-outs. She often spoke over Rob Wright and her rev-up methods often ended up putting more pressure and doubt into the shooters’ minds.
