At 26, Georgia Tong has made it clear you can become a Silver Fern later in your netball career. We follow the unorthodox path of @SilverFernsNZ No.180, who today could reach her next goal of making the Ferns on form rather than fate.#wbopmagichttps://t.co/T3XkqFLp6i

Thanks for posting this Ian. It’s a nice article, I didn’t realise she’s taller than Jane Watson. What’s not to likeMaryannParticipantOctober 6, 2021 at 9:36 amPost count: 502
I also thought, from all comments heard in media, that she was the shortest of the defenders. She is the slightest by far but speed is useful.KerrynParticipantOctober 6, 2021 at 9:43 amPost count: 101
and I wouldn’t be surprised if she had a better vertical jump than Jane too
I think her and Burger would be a pretty good combo – Burger is used to Jane hunting so just instinctively drops back – if she can prove herself at this level – and if Jury can keep improving, may that be Sulu’s comm games spot under threat??WeWoodParticipantOctober 6, 2021 at 10:47 amPost count: 278
I hope for Tong’s sake she has that starting GK bib for the Magic next year, or even GD and let Rore ease her way back in from the back.
My concern is MJ Araroa seems to be a Mikaere fan. Give me Tong’s speed and ability to attack the 45s every day of the week over Mikaere’s lean and height.MaryannParticipantOctober 6, 2021 at 12:30 pmPost count: 502
For the last couple of seasons those in the Ferns squad seem to have had the starts in ANZ – let’s hope it does continue.KerrynParticipantOctober 6, 2021 at 12:36 pmPost count: 101
she well deserves a starting spot – I’m still kinda hoping (which I know that won’t) that they drop Erana and pick up a WA!! as stated above she’s there for her height and her lean, neither of which she uses to overly great effect!!! (well she does on the odd occasion which always has the commentators singing her praises!!)WeWoodParticipantOctober 6, 2021 at 1:41 pmPost count: 278
@Kerryn was hoping it would have been Tong and Maihi in the circle together with Rore in front, or her dropping back into the circle if necessary.
Mikaere and Kersten feel surplus to requirements in this tea – especially when you consider Edgecombe the youngster likely to be getting splinters on the sideline all season..
