Very strong squads from South Africa and New Zealand. I think England are in for a tough time! I think this could be South Africa’s time to shine😊Ash72ParticipantDecember 1, 2019 at 1:03 pmPost count: 29
Well done South Africa they really deserved it and it keeps netball interesting. I thought Potgeiter was outstanding and I’ve noticed when she plays well and is confident it lifts he whole team.
Our attack end needed changes which weren’t an option, due to us having a defensive heavy squad with only one WA and only one young and inexperienced GA (Fisher, Cardwell and Corbin are GS’s not GA’s).Ash72ParticipantDecember 1, 2019 at 11:58 amPost count: 29
Malcolm and Williams have turned it around for us and even Corbin is doing her bit 35-35Ash72ParticipantDecember 1, 2019 at 11:56 amPost count: 29
England coming back and it’s 33-31, maybe time for Msomi and Raderman to come on?Ash72ParticipantDecember 1, 2019 at 11:54 amPost count: 29
This South African 7 are playing so fluently together and I really like Vimbela at GD, she’s much better there than at GK (where she constantly contacts and obstructs). I’m really impressed with their development over these matches and they deserve to win based on how both teams are playing.Ash72ParticipantDecember 1, 2019 at 11:43 amPost count: 29
Also sorry to keep harping on but Haythornthwaite is working her guts out: who have we got to bring on at WA to give her a rest?! Oh yes that would be one of our several WD’s😠Ash72ParticipantDecember 1, 2019 at 11:40 amPost count: 29
I agree Jinxibo and isn’t good for building confidence…SDL is a good GA but she looked like a rabbit in the headlights out there. Hopefully her next experience will be with H or H….Fisher also looked under a lot of pressure and her shooting action looked so nervy!
I also think Francis and Shimmin don’t work as a combo and we’re giving away a lot of height down that end….oh well let’s see what second half brings.Ash72ParticipantDecember 1, 2019 at 11:20 amPost count: 29
Meanwhile Potgeiter apparently can play GA!!!😊Ash72ParticipantDecember 1, 2019 at 11:20 amPost count: 29
SDL is looking a bit lost but her shots are going in. Maybe would’ve been better to let her first cap be with an experienced GS, so there was some leadership in there?
Can’t decide if she should stay on for the experience or come off?Ash72ParticipantDecember 1, 2019 at 11:18 amPost count: 29
Wow how good are South Africa?!Ash72ParticipantDecember 1, 2019 at 10:32 amPost count: 29
Fantastic, great to see SDL get on court hope she has a good game.Ash72ParticipantNovember 30, 2019 at 3:37 pmPost count: 29
Bluebird I’m of the same mind as you. I really hope we can see a proper WA developed. I was surprised not to see Darroch or even Parsons included in this series. We had 5 players (Clarke, Panagarry,Malcolm, Francis and Williams covering WD AND Marshall was in the mix too):it seems crazy to me that we only had 1 starting player who plays WA. When we were struggling it was due to lack of options in this position. We can’t keep going with just Haythornthwaite and Pitman, we need a third option who can play both C and WA.Ash72ParticipantNovember 30, 2019 at 2:28 pmPost count: 29
That was impressive from Fisher. There was a lot of frantic play going on around her but I think she handled it well. She can only grow.
Meanwhile have I ever said how fab I think Williams is?!😁Ash72ParticipantNovember 30, 2019 at 1:55 pmPost count: 29
Okay either put Cardwell back on at GA or get Drakeford-Lewis on now please!Ash72ParticipantNovember 30, 2019 at 1:54 pmPost count: 29
Quashie needs to move her feet more, she’s letting Burger hold a lot of back space and is being constantly pulled for crashing into her.
Fisher looks nervous but sunk her 4 first shots….We really need to get her used to this pressure: I think she’s up to it.
