    From Cara Gledhill

    4. The future looks bright with the youngsters coming through for the Roses

    Missing several key players in Geva Mentor, Serena Guthrie, Jo Harten and Helen Housby, the onus was on Jess Thirlby to show that the Roses could perform without them. Ellie Cardwell, Amy Carter and George Fisher were particularly impressive, with the shooters sharing most of their court time together throughout the tournament. Keep your eyes on this trio over the next few years in the lead-up to the next World Cup.

    Sterling is a brat, who has a small amount of talent. There was a incident in the final Q of the final, about the 11.50 mark.
    Maia Wilson was in front her SS slowing her already slow walk down to the transverse line, she then shoulders Maia, Maia just had a good laugh, doubt she felt anything.

    The Ferns used the game against SA as a training run, had they kept the same 7 on court all game, and played their top 7. 15-20 goals would have been the scoreline.

    England were ok, but they need to work on fitness esp the shooters.

    Jamaica had their moments

    South Africa poor, Lenize P has gone backwards, just shoot the dam ball.

    Good article. Not sure about SA being the most consistent though. At what exactly? But yes agree with the rest. It’s a Nations Cup so the Quad Series is dead now I think? Good because limiting the comp to just 4 is boring. Especially now we have a good solid top 5 countries in the world.

    The thing is with Sterling, her best style of defence is against the lobs. That’s where she shines and at her impressive best. None of the teams really used that style bar maybe SA in the Nations Cup. So she was no use for the most part. She did attack well in GD I must say.

    mcleod, I think Potgieter going backwards is because she is being forced to play GA. South Africa need to find a replacement for Holtzhausen soon, Rademan is good but needs more exposure.
