What a pleasurable series to watch; Eng showing their depth, SF progressing each game.

The Ferns win the series 3-0, but England showed more than enough in all three tests to suggest they’ll be a real force in future, especially when they get their SSN stars back.mcleodParticipantNovember 1, 2020 at 5:59 pmPost count: 1135
Maia Wilson’s shooting is amazing. Just puts them up from anywhere.

In the short time that Falkner was on the court, the shooting circle really opened up nicely. The ball seemed to go in to Wilson a lot more easier.Ian HarkinModeratorNovember 1, 2020 at 6:36 pmPost count: 10163Ian HarkinModeratorNovember 1, 2020 at 6:36 pmPost count: 10163BluebirdParticipantNovember 1, 2020 at 8:10 pmPost count: 109
I wish Thirby’s phone line had died. Why make Parsons entry onto the court more difficult by changing another player at the same time? And that line up for the third quarter, utterly stupid and took far too long to change. You could tell in that 4th quarter the Roses morale had gone.KwkiwiParticipantNovember 2, 2020 at 5:08 amPost count: 61
Ok game but towards the end looked like a training run for the Ferns with all the substitutions. Hard to tell where the Ferns are at from this series and the games against the men.
Fisher needs to develop a hold as well as the baseline dodge. Player with a lot of potential. She looks be more mobile for a tall shooter than Bassett . Looking forward to seeing her play in the NZ league. Pity for Guthrie that she injured herself in the second game. Their GK looked promising too, albeit a bit short.
The games I’m really looking forward to are the ones against Oz. ( full strength England side would be interesting too, with the addition of some of those players on the bench we just saw). Just hope Ekenasio doesn’t stop playing. The Ferns are very reliant on her.KwkiwiParticipantNovember 2, 2020 at 5:16 amPost count: 61
Would be great if a couple of England clubs could be stationed down in NZ for next season and be entered in our league, if the UK is still having lockdowns next year. It would be terrible if some of those players miss a second season of competitive netball. It would make our league more interesting. It’s a bit limiting watching 6 teams play each other repeatedly all season, as we have in the ANZ premiership.BeccaParticipantNovember 2, 2020 at 5:41 amPost count: 4
Over the last 12 days, the Ferns have played 7 games. And prior to that, they had a training camp which sounded quite intense. Does this schedule remind anyone else of the world cup? I’m guessing that Noeline Taurua deliberately scheduled things this way to give the players experience for when they have to play something like 8 games in 10 days for the World Cup.
I think the Ferns, in particular the midcourt, suffered with fatigue after the Cadbury series and weren’t playing at their best when it came time to play England. This surely will be an area that they’ll work on when Commonwealth Games and World Cup campaigns come around.JinxiboParticipantNovember 2, 2020 at 6:18 amPost count: 1077
Becca of cause DNT deliberately scheduled these two series back to back. Don’t forget only 2 players (Eke and Watson) would have had the full NWC experience of back to back tough games. The others would have been subbed on and off. As I recall Crampton and Saunders shared the WA bib it was Langman who did most of the running at C.
No matter who anyone says that was a Roses A team and they did play well.
Did anyone see the shot of Fisher and the Steel coach having a little chat, that was soo nice. Fisher likes to pop quite a lot, if she learns to hold like Wilson then She can already shoot from distance.NZChampionParticipantNovember 2, 2020 at 6:25 amPost count: 442
Missed this game. Will watch the replay later.
So sad England are going back into lockdown. I hope they enjoyed their time here. The young guns represented themselves and England so well.
So Kersten is our current starting C I take it. I’m not convinced, but maybe after I watch the game there might be a bit of hope. Saunders will never match Aus or Eng in C. It’s never going to happen. Maybe WA, maybe.
I’d like to think Silverferns have more to give. We have a few coming back to challenge the status quo. Poi, Nweke, Miss F are three names that could flip a game. Add TP, Mes as the experience.
Then the wider squad to keep challenging the current. Interesting times ahead.Ian HarkinModeratorNovember 2, 2020 at 6:26 amPost count: 10163
