The 2020/2021 national squad is focused on athletes who have performed consistently across the abbreviated season, and still have growth left in their game. Diamonds’ coach Stacey Marinkovich explained that the emerging squad, to be announced in a few weeks, will include athletes who have been less consistent but still show great skill on court. They may be promoted as a squad invitee, if they meet selection criteria. In this exclusive insight, Marinkovich discusses her selection choices.
I would hate to be a selector at any time but especially your first team selection after a few lacklustre years in terms of gold medals
Out of this squad I think the final 12 will be
Bassett, Koenen, Wood, Austin
Hadley, Price, Watson, Moloney (I’d prefer Simpson over Price but think Price will get in because she plays C and WD)
Klau, Mannix, Bruce, Weston
