With the news this week that the Constellation Cup is set to make a (very welcome) return in October, suggestions for Stacey Marinkovich’s starting seven have been popping up on Twitter thick and fast, as have the questions that plagued the last Constellation Cup clash between Australia and New Zealand in March this year. Will the Diamonds do the rolling captain thing again? Will there be room for veteran shooter Caitlin Bassett in the squad?
For me, the most pressing issue that the announcement brings up comes from the other side of the Tasman in the form of the Ferns shooting circle. Who is going to fill the goal attack role in the black dress come October?
