    I like this squad generally. Yes a bit more WA coverage would be good.
    Sad for those that missed out. Charles, Antiss, Proud and Parmy – all had great Seasons.
    I think there is enough scope to give Dwyer and Aryang a go mixed with the experience around them.
    While I agree its great to have know combinations I think players at this level need to be able to adjust to others around them and perform with others.
    All the best to Stacey, Nicole and the team! :good:

    I’ve been a Thwaites fan for years. She seems such a gracious sportswoman. Sitting on the bench is the hardest position in the team. Tough emotionally. We so often forget the value of such a player who is there to pick things up when the team is down. It comes without the glory of MVP awards but valuable just the same.
    She has come on with a huge impact such as she did last week in Sydney and seems at her best at the moment. She has never complained about being second fiddle to Bassett. In many ways it’s probably pushed Bassett to be on her game or lose her starting spot. I’ve been frustrated for ages when I see her there when Bassett has had some struggles. I can never read why LA makes choices she does but hope on Sunday Thwaites gets half a game at least and I’d like to see her with Gretel again. Saw them play live together last year and thought it was brilliant
    She will have much to offer the sport in the future. I will miss her poise and grace not to mention her accuracy and drive

    Agree with this. That centre court sounds good.
    I like Paige but she’s been a bit absent and hesitant. Someone commented she takes a while to form combinations and trust. Perhaps this is the because because she is a sensible passer where as last night there was lots of crazy passes.
    I am a Thwaites fan but have to admit there have been big games she hasn’t performed however Bassett is weak and not at her best.
    I saw a constellation cup match last year with Thwaites and Tippet. They combined beautifully and Australia won. Cannot figure LA decision making but she is the coach

    What a game. Happy with the result but soooo…..inconsistent from both teams and the umpires. So may uncalled held balls and some called that were not held! So many turnovers!
    Courtney Bruce is a star!⭐️⭐️⭐️🌟, her eyes were never on the ball. Tippett also pretty amazing and I was once not a fan. I eat my words.
    Would love to see Klau, Bruce and Weston in defence with Weston at WD. Brazil or JLP at centre and let Watson back to WA where she is at home. Can always have back up of Hadley and Sherian in the mid court. Only shooter I enjoyed today was Gretel, not so confident with Phillip, eyes sometimes off the ball.
    LA makes some odd choices for my mind.
