    Absolutely fantastic new but oh what a loss for England Netball – massive shoes to fill.

    I think this will probably solidify Malcolm’s place in the team (I’m not a massive fan!)

    Wowsers, didn’t see that coming. Big congratulations to Serena and her partner! She’ll be a huge loss to the England Roses – and I agree, this probably solidifies Malcolm’s place….

    For some reason the site won’t let me edit my post – my other thinking is that we do have Jade Clarke waiting in the wings – and we all know how effective she can be. So many brilliant centre court options – and don’t forget Nat Panagarry either.

    Congrats to Serena on an outstanding career!

    Talking about replacements, I think it’s due time we give Nat Panagarry her permanent spot. She’s been so impressive and has improved over the years. I do understand that she has gotten the Roses gig here and there. But I’d love to see for once get that starting spot and not be used as a bench player or even an England A squad.

    Agreed PICASSO123. Nat Panagarry has been rock-solid for Lightning for many years already and absolutely deserves a spot in the Roses. Unfortunately, I see Malcolm getting the nod over her :scratch:

    Congratulations to Serena and her family, that’s wonderful news!

    Massive news that she is retiring, and that leaves a huge hole at England and Bath. Not just at C but also as a great WD option for England – she always seems to come alive and win a lot of important interceptions back there. As others have said, this is likely good news for Laura Malcom, IMO she is best as a WD so could cover there ok, although I’d love to see Funmi Fadoju included as a WD (and GD) option.

    Congrats to Guthrie. Beats on her calling her baby Bobby 😂. A family of Bobs.

    An amazing servant of the game.

    So.. who starts at centre for England? Clarke, Cobden, Malcolm, Pangarry?

    Wow congrats to her! A loss for us fans, she’s great to watch.

    Interesting to think that NZ and Eng have lost Rore and Guthrie respectively for CWGs. I wonder if there will be any other unexpected changes coming.

    Congrats on a massive career. Langman has always had notihng but praise and respect for Guthrie’s game which i think says a lot.

    I feel like this is a massive loss for England in the sense that even if they wwere 4-5 goals down with minutes to go in the final quarter you always felt like Serena could pull a rabbit out of the hat on defence. Clarke, Malcolm and Panagarry are great players, but i don’t feel like they could turn a game when it matters quite like serena.

    Congratulations to Serena.

    I do wonder if this is why Pitman was involved in a small capacity for quad series. Having an experienced head may help come CWG.
