    Batcheldor is such a great player already. It’s crazy to me that the Firebirds have favoured Stower. A frontline of Koenen/Batcheldor/Wood would be very exciting.

    DW. It’s Jemma Donoghue.

    I know this is the giants thread, but very impressed with Bacheldor.
    Think Giants may struggle this year. Actually, depends how many super shots they can hit 😂

    There’s just something about the SC Lightning picking up underrated talent from the Fbirds and turning them into superstars. For years, the Fbirds overshadowed Scherian and she exceeded at Lightning when given a chance. Now we might just see the same with Hinchliffe and Batcheldor.

    Watching this game against the NSW Mens team and regardless of physical ability I think the biggest let down has been looking at the players attitudes, particularly JLP who is now a leader of the team. I find her very hard to watch in regular season and I think she’s been exposed in this game as she can’t just steam roll her way through players like she usually does in SSN. The men aren’t falling over like she’s used to and instead of trying to out-skill them she is flailing her arms around and complaining to the umpires. In the course of the game I’ve now seen Parmy and Hay do the same on multiple occasions and they never usually complain so this raises concerns.

    I actually think the giants are going to struggle this season, especially if Brandley is sidelined much as the Moore/McDonnell combo really hasn’t looked like it’s clicked and I think JLP in the middle with no real back-up option is going to hurt the giants. Super shots have been their saving grace for a while but I have a sense we won’t be seeing the giants in finals this season.

    Will be happy to be proven wrong however…

    Just from what I’ve seen so far, I feel like Giants are really going to struggle without Sam Poolman.
    Her height, build and voice seems sorely missed. She has a very intimidating presence, and combined so well with Brandley.

    However in saying that, they do have some good talent there. They’ll definitely build and get stronger over the season. I just wonder if it’ll be enough to get them into the finals?
