    If the best games of netball look like dancing with a ball, Tegan Philip plays goal attack like she’s in an elaborate Regency gavotte. Now that you know she is retiring, watch again her most recent MVP performance against the Fever in Round 5. She presents for the ball at the centre pass, then withdraws smoothly to circle the periphery, reappearing in an unanticipated space to dissolve a defensive goal circle tangle just when the music demands.

    The changes of direction are constant, smooth and precise. There are no sudden dashes, just mesmerising motion delivered with twinkling footwork; every movement anticipating a balancing parry from a teammate. This is an art that defies a superficial tally of Netpoints. She had four opponents at GD in this game: two international players and all the strategies of the new Diamonds coach could not shut her down.

    Thanks Jane …and Tegan.

    Woke up this morning and thought, oh, it’s game day…..good luck Vixens…and hope Dan doesn’t do today’s presser between 1-3pm so 9 sticks to the game for its entirety.
