Given that Austin travelled with the Giants throughout her entire rehab and seemed to be such a core part of the team, it has to hurt that she’s leaving. Surely she’s going to the Vixens now. Maybe Dwan to the Giants then?? Or potentially the Thunderbirds, given that they need GA support for Horjus.furballthecatParticipantSeptember 20, 2021 at 5:11 pmPost count: 9
Happy to see Shimmin and McDonnell resigned at the Lightning and Giants.
Absolutely shocked to see Hinchliffe leave the Firebirds. Maybe joining her sister at the Lightning, but she’ll still be recovering from her ACL injury.
If Ellis goes to the Fever, as has been rumoured, my only thought is that Francis-Bayman will be returning to the UK. Will be interesting to see how Olivia Lewis fits in there then. Aryang won’t lose her spot in GD, and I can’t see them pushing Bruce to GD and Aryang to WD for Ellis to go into GK. Very very intriguing.furballthecatParticipantSeptember 14, 2021 at 11:16 amPost count: 9furballthecatParticipantSeptember 13, 2021 at 3:56 pmPost count: 9furballthecatParticipantSeptember 13, 2021 at 1:13 pmPost count: 9
Yep, Medhurst will be Head of Sport at Presbyterian Ladies’ College in Perth. She also posted a question box on her Insta a few weeks ago and said her and Sam suffered a miscarriage earlier this year, and will continue trying, so that appears to be her focus at the moment.
A girl can dream that Medhurst would be back at Fever though!furballthecatParticipantSeptember 13, 2021 at 11:52 amPost count: 9
Completely agree AllieC! In the Fremantle competition in WA, there is an Islamic College who play and all of the girls wear long sleeves, long pants and headscarves. The other players do not mind, and it’s great to see them playing. They played against a junior team from my club, and during the game, one of the girls headscarves began to fall off. The girls from my junior team all stood around her and blocked her so that she could fix it and continue to play, and it was one of the most amazing moments I’ve seen on a netball court.
Definitely all for inclusive uniforms!furballthecatParticipantSeptember 13, 2021 at 11:41 amPost count: 9
Definitely can’t wait for signings to occur, but here are my thoughts:
– Dwan to the Vixens. Again, I don’t like to comment on players’ personal lives, but I think it’s pretty clear that she is currently dating Lara Dunkley’s brother who plays at the Western Bulldogs. In saying that though, Rav, Ellis and Dunkley all have connections to the BUlldogs and are still at the Firebirds, so maybe she will stay given that support network.
– I have heard rumblings that ALJ may return to the Lightning, given that the travel between the UK and home is limited due to COVID. Also, since Maweni left, that’s her spot back. Hopefully Shimmin gets to lock down GD, and then ALJ is her back-up, not the other way around.
– I really hope Wallam gets a spot, way too talented to be a training partner.
– The Giants now have two defensive spots option, I really hope they develop some Aussie talent.
– In terms of a replacement for Proscovia, potentially Wallam? But I think she’s more likely to stay in WA, and Koenan wouldn’t lose the starting GS at the Lightning anyway.
