Here’s hoping the girls kill it in the final series and win a Premiership with Caitlin + Tegan à la Cath Cox in 2014!
It’d be great if Vixens could pick up an interstate GA e.g. Glasgow or Allen and blood a young VIC shooter too. Perhaps Mari-Venter might be an option too seeing as she’s played with most of the team before…?

Congratulations to both on incredible careers with huge successes.
I half expected that this was Phillip’s last season, but thought Thwaites would go one or two more. However, this is the big chance for the Vixens to stamp their authority on the Final series and finish of the year with a big win for both players!!
As to replacements….. as Tully said they need to be GA first as MJ will be the GS. So not CBass or Stanton as they are really GS. I’d be surprised if Hodges was considered ahead of the talent which has leap frogged her. There must be a reason none of the NZ teams have re-signed her and Tbirds aren’t interested, which is a shame as she is clearly too good to “just” be playing SA premier league. It will be interesting to see, however I’d have thought just about every possible shooter would love to be coached by Simone & Sharelle!mcleodParticipantSeptember 28, 2020 at 3:15 pmPost count: 506
Will miss seeing CT play. I wonder who will retire next. I expect a few more over the next week or so.TBParticipantSeptember 28, 2020 at 4:02 pmPost count: 116
Moving to Vixens could be really good for CBass. Having someone like McMahon to work with, may take her game to a new level.
In saying that, they already have Kumwenda, so maybe they’d be more keen to find a good GA.netballmumParticipantSeptember 28, 2020 at 4:39 pmPost count: 41
TB unless CBass is interested in playing GA I can’t see Vixens being interested – why would they want her – to sit on the bench behind MJ??Ian HarkinModeratorSeptember 29, 2020 at 10:07 amPost count: 5405Ian HarkinModeratorSeptember 29, 2020 at 10:07 amPost count: 5405Ian HarkinModeratorOctober 1, 2020 at 6:22 pmPost count: 5405
“Actually sitting in the room with Simone face-to-face I was like ‘ok, this is the first time I’ve had to say it out loud in front of someone, so it definitely feels a bit more real’…so we had a bit of a laugh about that." 🤗

“It would be incredible to finish it off on a high…we’ve dealt with a lot of adversity along the way, and how amazing it would be to hold up the trophy at the end…with all of the mates that you’ve been through it all with.’’

WE'RE GOING TO THE GRAND FINAL!
The Lightning rally in the final term but we run out 16-goal winners.
One more win needed to achieve all we have fought so hard for this year 🏆

“I’m proud of them. It’s a group that’s had some heartache…but they’re a group that have learnt and grown and matured and taken those learnings to where they are now with an opportunity to win a Grand Final." – Simone🤗
