Kayla is a massive risk, one that massive strapping on her knee, two she struggles to play 30 min let alone 60.
I’d have Holly Fowler, Kate Burley, karaka and jury as my 4 defenders. I have no clue who the defenders will be though.WeWoodParticipantJune 25, 2022 at 6:43 pmPost count: 531
Agree x2 @mcleod.
I just feel Johnson would be the obvious option for Taurua to go to, over Fowler who hasn’t been in the Ferns before and Burley, who while also new to that environment also doesn’t provide WD coverage – unless it was something trialed and Taurua liked what she saw. Big risk.
Hurry up Monday, please!WeWoodParticipantJune 25, 2022 at 6:48 pmPost count: 531
I was actually chatting to a friend earlier in the week about quite a controversial thought.. 5 middies to 3 defenders.
The rationale being you had:
Crampton – WA
Gordon – WA/C/WD
Heffernan – C/WD and pushed her to GD during the pool games
MRB – C/WA
Saunders – C/WA
Plus 3x circle defenders:
Two of Fitzpatrick/Karaka/Temu – GD/GK
Jury – GK
While very unlikely to happen, it recognizes the need for genuine change-up options in that midcourt and being a bit craftier with that fourth defender spot, getting use out of them in the pool games and then really nailing down the combinations for the three big games to end the tournament.BallerParticipantJune 25, 2022 at 6:59 pmPost count: 479
If Souness and Karaka get selected at least we have a GS and GA back up! 🤣🤣🤣NateParticipantJune 25, 2022 at 7:04 pmPost count: 367mcleodParticipantJune 25, 2022 at 7:27 pmPost count: 1478
I’m sure Mes could any of the 7 positionsnakiboy80ParticipantJune 26, 2022 at 10:35 amPost count: 9
I can see this being something close to the squad:
Shooters: Wilson, Mes, Metuarau, Selby-Rickitt (with Ekenasio and Nweke to not make the fitness standards)
Midcourt: Crampton, Saunders, Gordon, Poi (to trial amazingly well)
Defenders: Johnson, Karaka, Fitzpatrick, Jury (I personally wouldn’t have Johnson, but without Burger, you need a GD/WD slide, and without Sokolich-Beatson at the trials, it’s down to Johnson and Fowler).
Reserves: – Dunn, Winders, Manu’a
It is a tough squad to pick!

I think MSB got a late callup after fitness and sickness ruled others out. I’m picking her in my team with Heffernan.nanatorParticipantJune 26, 2022 at 9:32 pmPost count: 213
My guess for the team tomorrow (and I have no clue):
Wilson, Eke, Mes, Dunn
Crampton, Saunders, Gordon, Winders
Jury, Karaka, Temu, Fitzpatrick
