Good squad. It’s good they’ve stacked the midcourt because that’s the one area of the court where Australia really has the upper hand now that Langman’s retired. If the Diamonds bring a strong level out of quarantine I think this series will be very close, one of the closest Constellation Cups we’ve had yet.
Interesting that Maddy Gordon is in this squad, considering she was not used at all to play for the Ferns in the Cadbury series.
I think she’s a real talent, and am glad she’s included in this team.
They have a nice blend of youth and experience.
My concern is in the defensive end. I feel this is Jane Watsons real test on how she handles the GD position. I don’t think, correct me if I’m wrong, she’s ever had to play on a quick and nippy type of GA. I think her style will suite playing on Koenan or Garbin. May find Austin tricky.
