Tactix confirm training partners for 2022JinxiboParticipantDecember 4, 2021 at 10:39 pmPost count: 1088
Jane Watson replacement ???
Recall for Fenwick or call up for one of the training partners???MaryannParticipantDecember 5, 2021 at 5:08 amPost count: 502
The two training partners are both attackers. Maybe one of the three apprentice defenders they have named? I don’t know the names at all so no idea if there is any possibility they could make the leap – which has grown a lot wider – straight to ANZ.
Parris Mason? Signed up as a training partner for Pulse.WeWoodParticipantDecember 5, 2021 at 6:48 amPost count: 278
Looking at that team list, I feel like they’re well covered defensively.
No one will replace Watson, but would think Lloyd and Nawai-Caucau are serviceable at the back – NC had a full season on court with the Pulse last year remember.
Then Burger at GD, Elley the starting WD with the ability to have Nathan pop back there if needed.
I would think one of those attacking training partners might be elevated to the main squad to offer something fresh in the shooting end/mid court. Glen’s inclusion in the main squad is a real head scratcher for me.

When the original team was named, it looked defence-heavy, so of all the teams, it’s probably the best one to handle a loss like this. Will still be huge though.TBParticipantDecember 7, 2021 at 2:08 pmPost count: 451
NC/Burger would be a really good combination. Would like to see that develop. As someone mentioned on here, NC played a full season this year. She would be able to build on that, gaining more experience.WeWoodParticipantDecember 8, 2021 at 11:26 amPost count: 278
Great to see the next generation of leaders taking the reigns of their ANZP teams – Poi, Jury and Metuarau at the Pulse.
Imagine the rest of the sides will remain unchanged from 2021 – Fitzpatrick, Crampton, Sinclair and Saunders.
