    Someone mentioned Crampton, Saunders, Poi and Gordan. I love this combo. Poi connects so well with the Ferns attackers. She understands Maia and where she wants the ball. Gordan is just explosive and attacks so well. Crampton and Saunders are the experience needed.

    Shooters Maia, Mes, Tiana and TP. If TP isn’t fit enough, Nweke. I don’t think Eke is going to make it in time. We have to continue with the moving circle. It’s doing the hard yards for one goal, but with a excellent attacking plan we have shown it can work.

    Defenders Jury and Kristiana are hands down starters. The combination and communication is too strong after one season together. I’m not sure if Noels will like the one on one style they use. Because it rattled every GA in our comp. None of them were ready for that, except maybe Magic with their experienced shooters. Then add in Karaka and Temu. Karaka will is a great GK, just hasn’t had the chance recently to show that. Maybe once or twice this year. Her versatility will be valued and her random pickups she always manages to get. Her combo with Sulu has gone sour. So I’m not counting her performances with Sulu. Temu well she has been nothing but outstanding. No international experience at all, but has x factor just waiting to be exposed.

    sadly hear Dame Noeline admit gold is very unlikely to happen, still cant wait to see who she selects and see the girls in black out there

    I’ve never heard a ferns coach say that unlikely to make the final.
    Silly thing to say,

    Haha thats an old tactic, trying to play the underdog game to put the pressure on other teams and lower everyone’s expectations so the pressure is less on the SF.

    I think we’ll make the medal games no worries, but I don’t think we have the fit personnel available who can last 60 mins against the Diamonds, Roses or Sunshine Girls. Good for a half, but not grinding out a full game.

    I have heard there are quite a few trialists are not there due to sickness, I was told none of the Pulse players are there. It might just be survival of the fittest.

    @wewood how will they medal if they cant play out a whole match against those 3?


    @nesian
    does that mean they dont get selected then? Or will their ANZP form be taken instead?

    @Nate I have no idea. It’s over four days so hopefully they will be able to partake in one way or another in the trials but it might end up throwing up a few surprises if they can’t or don’t trial.

    @Nate I’m predicting a fourth place finish for us. So losing the semi and the bronze medal playoff.


    @Nesian
    that sounds horrendous. Players hitting a bit of a wall post ANZP-completion. Taurua might have her hand forced to pick an ANZP-form 12 with whatever latest fitness info she has available?

    @wewood, I agree but SF might be able to pip Jamaica with a strong midcourt pressure for Bronze.


    @nesian
    that’s would suck at least 3 Pulse players I’d have in my SF team, but hopefully something comes right and either they can trial at some stage or at least take their ANZP and fitness tests for that. Keep those ears up for any further info you hear around lol

    Winter bugs are hitting hard in Wgtn (and probably everywhere).

    DNT is going to need to think outside the box and perhaps turn the Cadbury series into Probables vs Possible SF teams.
