From what I hear it is not Proud leaving Swifts. But perhaps Garbin.Netballcrazy1ParticipantSeptember 25, 2020 at 10:08 amPost count: 1323
Oh wow big move and Swifts will need a strong shooter to be able to come on court well when they’re needed. The Giants and Swifts have a lot of shooting depth in the TPs and academy’s though so if they go with local talent I can’t see them struggling to find someoneTullyParticipantSeptember 25, 2020 at 11:00 amPost count: 508
Housby and Wallace to start. Try and get Dwyer (As she is better at GA than Letherbarrow) back as a contracted player. Then hopefully Letherbarrow replaces Bassett. Plenty of shooting talent in NSW and both teams will be fine.
Garbin like Glasgow needs to find a starting spot. Dwyer, Letherbarrow and Hodges need contracts. Australian meet all needs them to come through. And for Dwan to continue to develop and not go to the bench.JbssParticipantSeptember 25, 2020 at 11:58 amPost count: 179
Singleton has been good for Swifts too, really NSW needs a third team for all its starting shooters, there are so many who need court time. I agree that Dwan needs to keep starting too. I rather Bueta as GA though so again not sure how that’ll go.Ian HarkinModeratorSeptember 25, 2020 at 12:11 pmPost count: 5679
Collingwood has re-signed Molly Jovic and Jodi-Ann Ward.al_exParticipantSeptember 25, 2020 at 12:24 pmPost count: 470
Even as a Swifts fan I won’t be upset if Garbin moves, it’s her time. She obviously has gotten more court time this year but if she wants to make the Diamonds 12 I think she needs to be starting at GS, so Collingwood would probably be her best bet. Hopefully we can lure Dwyer back, but even Singleton has proven to be a really good option. NSW has great shooters so it would be great to see someone new get an opportunity if Garbin does move on.
I really hope Firebirds try to develop Bueta as a GS. She is very strong on the hold and I don’t think she offers any more down the court at GA than Dwan does. Her defence is strong but Dwan is also very strong defensively. Going forward the Firebirds need them both on court, and I don’t see how Dwan is going to be an SSN level GS.
Great to see Jovic and Ward back. Add in some new shooters and build the midcourters back up and Collingwood will be a force.aqua301ParticipantSeptember 25, 2020 at 12:32 pmPost count: 33
Bueta was playing GS in ANL with Wood and Ekenasio at GA. Won’t be surprised to see her there again.NettySuperFanParticipantSeptember 25, 2020 at 12:44 pmPost count: 223
excellent move by Collingwood!!!JamesParticipantSeptember 25, 2020 at 2:13 pmPost count: 114
Where would Garbin move to and be starting GS? I don’t think she is a starting GA
If Bassett leaves Giants she will definitely be signed over Garbin so if I was Garbin I’d stay at Swifts where she is getting court time, only move would be to Vixens if Thwaites retires but she would be in same role she is now at Swiftsal_exParticipantSeptember 25, 2020 at 2:25 pmPost count: 470
I think we can be quite sure about Bassett going to NZL. Nesian never lies.TACTIXSUPPORTERParticipantOctober 3, 2020 at 5:59 amPost count: 438
I wonder if Pitman will be picked up from another Suncorp team. Her husband is in Adelaide right? So might be hard for her to leave Adelaide.
I think she is still a decent player, but the only team that might want her is Fever. Lightning if Langman retiresenglishrose21ParticipantOctober 3, 2020 at 6:45 amPost count: 82
I just saw a clip of Pitman feeding Harten and it made me think. With rolling subs it would be good for Hay too to learn more. Also Pitman has her parents in Sydney I think so may work well for her personally.
I wonder if Langman and Scherian will retire? Would be big gaps in experience there if they didNetballcrazy1ParticipantOctober 3, 2020 at 2:05 pmPost count: 1323
I can’t see Pitman not being picked up somewhere and considering she has expressed that she wants to continue, even though it would mean living interstate for most of the season, she will probably take whatever opportunities come her way.JoyjamieParticipantOctober 4, 2020 at 11:37 pmPost count: 75
In relation to the Swifts know that Helen Housby has contract for next year but do any others. not sure whether the squad needs changing. for me would love Nat to stay if she does leave would go for Pitman with that experience she hasal_exParticipantOctober 5, 2020 at 12:02 amPost count: 470
The Swifts can not afford to not give Fraser a contract next year. So unless Proud or Hadley leaves I wouldn’t keep Haythornthwaite. I definitely wouldn’t actively recruit Pitman, the Swifts don’t need more depth in their attacking midcourt.
Giants, Fever and Lightning are the three teams I think could really use Pitman. For Fever and Lightning she’d probably be starting, at Giants she’d allow Austin to really focus on her GA game and we might see more of Hay in C.
