Cannot wait to to see how the new additions to the Vixens go.
Im already having netball withdrawals, its far too long before SSN starts again!mcleodParticipantNovember 3, 2019 at 6:16 amPost count: 117
May the 2nd or something like that I believe the SSN will start, so even later than this year. And yet they are having a 6 month pre season or even longer.Ian HarkinModeratorNovember 12, 2019 at 10:20 pmPost count: 2394

So Samason nowhere to be seen?TullyParticipantDecember 18, 2019 at 9:59 pmPost count: 37
Samason remains well entrenched in camp Vixens. Samason is in the Vixens academy squad and a VIS scholarship holder. Any Vixens academy squad member who outperforms can be added as a Vixens TP post February for the SSN season. We don’t know how Samason’s knee rehab is going but from all reports she is in next in for a contract (along with Mundy who is a similar story returning from a foot injury in 2019 and Smith) so long as this year is a successful return from injury. They are also very conscious of load management with her this year whilst ensuring she gets substantial court time in ANL and VNL. Samason did pre season testing with the Vixens 10 and TP unlike the balance of the academy players.
The shooter that has fallen out of the reckoning is Jane Cook. Vixens were very clear to her she wasn’t ready for a TP role a few years ago so she took a 2 year contract in Adelaide and we all know how that ended. Last year she was a Collingwood TP. This year not with a SSN club. Is in the Fury team where she will be fighting Samason, Barkmeyer and McDonald for court time.TullyParticipantDecember 18, 2019 at 10:18 pmPost count: 37
Vixens are very aware that in a year or two both Thwaites and Philip will retire. That’s why they have two shooting TPs (Barkmeyer and McDonald) as well as Samason. Then also Maggie Caris, Ruby Horton and Uneeq Palavi in the academy.
In McMahon, Southby and Honey they have the right people at the helm to develop the shooters.Ian HarkinModeratorFebruary 12, 2020 at 10:54 pmPost count: 2394
Simone signs on! 🤩✍️
“I didn’t need to be convinced, or convince myself. I just really feel that I’ve still got a lot to offer to the group and that there’s unfinished business in lots of ways.”
