    @siouxsie-que

    I agree. I really loved watching Glasgow at GS for the Thunderbirds back in 2019. And I think Dan Ryan’s decision to move ATN out to wing attack has been a brilliant one.

    Congrats to the Fever – I haven’t watched the whole game yet, just the first half and the last five mins, but they played so well and really deserved the win. Was really impressed with Fowler standing up to the pressure. I’m not generally a huge fan of her, but when you see how she plays compared to her ANZ days or in comparison to Nweke, the work she’s put in is very evident – even her improvement from last year against the Giants in finals to this year.

    I agree about reserving judgement – I was really hoping Mvula would go to the Tbirds, but she’s playing for Pulse in NZ.

    Are there selection rules for the teams? Just curious because Vic fury announced their squad (https://vic.netball.com.au/victorian-fury) and it includes Olivia Lewis, Hannah Mundy, Rahni Samason, Taylor Honey, and Sacha McDonald – all of whom have played in SSN or UK Superleague this year. It will be interesting to see if other players with less court time in other SSN teams compete

    I do think the selections for the squad itself are good – Moloney has done really well this season, and I think the shooters are a much better balance of GS/GA if the game plan is to put Bueta at GS. Wood was too good at Quad series to overlook her, so hopefully she can get a break now that Lightning’s season is over to get her knee right.
    Aryang does offer a good change up in style compared to Weston, Klau or Bruce at GD, and I’m happy Australia is in a situation where we have three really strong players (Bakewell-Doran, Aryang, Turner). Much better defensive depth since con cup selection last year!

    Still frustrated with the Price over Proud selection. I hope Proud gets selected for con cup and any other tests this year, because her form is deserving, and Australia needs the C/WA cover.

    @Netballcrazy1
    Yep!! I was having the same thoughts – regardless of Proud’s form (which is brilliant and she is deserving in her own right), it’s just a stupid selection strategically. Hadley is a good WA, but she doesn’t play with same style of dominance as Watson. Hadley balances well with an attacking centre (like Proud!), and Moloney and Price are both more defensive centres.

    Same re: Turner. I think she’s been good this year, and shown good versatility across all three defensive positions.

    I’ll be absolutely furious though if the midcourt is correct. Proud should at the very least be a travelling reserve – Price had NINE turnovers on Saturday, and I was not impressed with her at Quad series at all.

    Medhurst has confirmed the expected:
    “In 2020, SSN made the decision only six weeks out from the season to completely change the way in which the game was played, as well as how coaches and clubs recruit, by introducing the still-contentious two-point shot. That decision was made with zero player or club consultation, despite them being the ones most heavily impacted. The ones who had to play under the rules.

    At the time, a furious playing group was promised by SSN and Netball Australia that there would be greater transparency and collaboration in decision-making moving forward. This was all in writing and something that I, as president of the Players Association at the time, was a part of, communicating back and forth with the league.

    Two years later, it is apparent that nothing has changed.”

    Just absolutely ridiculous. I don’t even have words anymore.

    Very frustrating watching the Magic – not impressed with the coaching.

    I don’t think Edgecombe is doing too badly, she’s just not getting the necessary coaching direction. She was in the right place most of the time, she just kept driving away from the ball carrier instead of punching forward or dodging to the side. Was also frustrating watching Winders reset to the line when they had the perfect positioning for a triangle play to Edgecombe at the top and then into the shooters – would have been a good way to exploit the absence of Harrison and Johnson’s long arms and reach.

    Bright side, EKENASIO! :heart: Loved how she played and also just how happy she looked to be playing.

    I thought it looked like Cassidy banged her head on price’s elbow while trying to right herself – so I didn’t see the push in the back, but I do think the head knock part was an unfortunate accident

    Dehaney! I actually really enjoyed seeing her in GD – her long arms were a menace. I hope we see more of her there – that defensive combo and midcourt pressure seemed to be effective for the last quarter

    God the umpiring – I agree with what others have said, it’s been very messy this season so far, and this game the worst by far. Especially regarding the lack of cautions and warnings; ANZ umpiring might seem over the top in comparison sometimes, but I’d much rather that style where the umpires control the physicality than watching players get smashed onto the floor all game
