    Very spread out. At least two seats between groups, empty row in front and behind each group. Every section is open except the block behind team benches. Maybe 800-1000 people in the stadium

    I have tickets for this game, but since I live in Melbourne I couldn’t go. WA borders have been closed to all Victorians (unless we undergo two weeks quarantine) for several weeks now. So none of the Melbourne based Vixens TPs (apart from Rahni) could get to the game either. And the ban on anyone who has been in NSW in the last 14 days has only been in place since yesterday. (Only People who had been at an actual infection location had been barred from travel until then).

    And regardless of who the three players were who visited Byron on their weekend off, unless the team was instructed not to leave Qld I do see much blame attaching to them. And as far as ‘common sense’ goes a week ago there really wasn’t much to indicate that visiting rural NSW was likely to cause any more of a problem than being in rural Qld.

    I don’t really have a problem with the WA approach to closing borders, apart from their very selective approach to granting exemptions to low risk sporting teams.

    So a midcourter’s 3 seconds, instead of a shooter’s 3?

    Congratulations Samason on a great debut. And congratulations Tully – you have been telling us! I loved her answer in the post match interview about what went through her mind before the final shot – “nothing really”.

    I guess that is one of the good things of being a new face, with limited external expectations – fewer mental demons to wrestle with.

    Interfering with the post by a defender is (now) only a penalty if it causes a shot to miss. No shot taken inside three seconds = no shot missed = no penalty. (And in any case, I’m not sure the defender interfered with the post rather than being knocked into it by her opponent.)

    Tbirds 51 Vixens 40 at three quarter time.
    Both defended winning a lot of ball. And have I mentioned recently how much I hate the super shot?

    Looks like Gabby Coffey has joined Vixens for today’s game. Kadie must still be unwell.

    Vixens up 16-10 at quarter time. Some great defensive work in the last 5 minutes (or Mannix time as it’s more commonly known)

    It occurs to me that this may be because there is less than 12 months left on the SSN and NA rights deal with Telstra? It would be nice to have an explanation in any case.

    I seriously doubt that the coach has any role in pay negotiations

    Hopefully, Barkmeyer is as good as rumour suggests.

    My three are starting at 60/1, 80/1 and 100/1. Not looking too promising.
