Hopefully we see Aiken/Bueta/Dwan rotate in the shooting circle like the Vixens did this year, Dwan is too talented to be sitting behind Aiken/Bueta on the bench!Ian HarkinModeratorOctober 15, 2020 at 12:34 pmPost count: 7324al_exParticipantOctober 15, 2020 at 1:42 pmPost count: 584
It’s interesting to me that so many posters think Dwan will spend time on the bench. Considering Bueta will be having a relatively brisk turnaround from giving birth (and there may be complications such as c-sections that could delay her return) and Aiken is towards the end of her career, I feel like Dwan might get the most court time of the three. Sophomore seasons can be tough as well so even if she is on the bench I don’t think it will be a bad thing for her progression.Netballcrazy1ParticipantOctober 15, 2020 at 2:00 pmPost count: 1465
Yeah, I think Bueta will actually be slow getting back. She is due in Jan so it will be a tight turnaround. I was kind of surprised to see her in the Diamonds squad for 2020/21 when Brazill, who was also in the 2019/20 squad and in great form, will probably be back sooner but isn’t included in the squad. But I get it, Bueta is much more experienced for the Diamonds. Anyways, Dwan should still get some good court time and its only her second season so I’m not too worried.Ian HarkinModeratorOctober 15, 2020 at 4:06 pmPost count: 7324englishrose21ParticipantOctober 15, 2020 at 5:28 pmPost count: 110
I noticed Ine-Mari liked a player announcement post on Saracen Mavericks Instagram. Perhaps she is the replacement shooter for George FisherNettySuperFanParticipantOctober 15, 2020 at 5:32 pmPost count: 245
Yeah, when I first saw that Venter was going overseas, I though maybe Mavs or Rhinos. So I wouldn’t be surprised if it Mavs, itd be a pretty awesome replacement!TullyParticipantOctober 15, 2020 at 6:00 pmPost count: 629
I posted elsewhere I suspect Venter will end up in Super League. Just not quite the same level as the other GS in SSN and not a great GA option. But in Super League she could dominate the GS position. Needs to play after bench sitting for two years.ZaraParticipantOctober 15, 2020 at 8:16 pmPost count: 261
I did think that too – if she is at Mavs I’d assume she would be playing with Corbin which would be an interesting partnership for her.MontyandpoppyParticipantOctober 16, 2020 at 9:34 amPost count: 68
So sad to see it’s Cassidy that’s leaving the Birds. I think she was such a work horse for them. Big lossIan HarkinModeratorOctober 16, 2020 at 10:41 amPost count: 7324

“We are putting together an exciting engine room for next season who I have no doubt will be instrumental in our future success.”
The Captain's back, and she'll be lining up alongside Jem and Larz!

This team should be able to go all the way to finals this year. They were building something great this year, and the addition of Beuta and Rav will only strength that, and bring a bit of experiene! They will also have a VERY strong bench, with all of them able to play at this level well and provide meaningful change. I’m VERY excited about this team!
