    @Baller from those 3 WAs you name, Saunders would be the obvious C.

    If those four names are right, am thinking Johnson must’ve made it as a defender to be the back-up WD?

    Saunders has played WD fleetingly at international level but would need to focus on C for CWGs.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    If Souness and Karaka get selected at least we have a GS and GA back up! 🤣🤣🤣

    🤣🤣🤣 @Baller, dont forget Jury, she was a shooter too…. at school. And i swear weve seen Saunders run the GA bib before too? 😱

    I’m sure Mes could any of the 7 positions

    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.

    Wilson, Eke, Mes, Dunn
    Crampton, Saunders, Gordon, Winders
    Jury, Karaka, Temu, Fitzpatrick

    Reserves: Metaurau, Kersten, Manua
