      I’m really impressed with Tash Pavelin at GD for Bath. She worked really well out front with Imogen Allison, took clean ball and helped her GKs focus on containing Cholhok.

        The mispronunciation of players’ names really irks me. If you’re going to be in the commentary box, take some time to learn them. Where Tracey Neville kept finding the extra ‘c’ in Cholhok’s name, I’ll never know, but she kept calling her Cholcock (until I assume someone told her at the end of Q3, as it got better).

        I really like her analysis of the game in the breaks, but she talks constantly throughout the game, the commentator could barely get a word in.

          I think four 60 minute matches in four days may be catching up with the men. Throwing away so many balls. Ferns are looking great. I really hope Winders makes the team for next week.

            Yep, the rule has changed. It used to be that there had to be a space for an opposition player to go between the hands of the passer and receiver, but now it’s just the opponent’s hand:

            9.5.1 Short Pass
            When a player passes the ball there must be sufficient space for an opposing player on the court to be able to intercept the ball with a hand as it moves from the hands of the thrower to those of the receiver.

              Interesting to see the long feeds stat: 27 (men) vs. 22 (Ferns), so it wasn’t the lob fest many think it was.

                For those complaining about the men not having a different kit, a polite reminder that they are self-funded and have already spent a lot of money to even play in this comp, especially those based in Australia. One would think the Ferns would have an alternative kit for such an occasion.

                It’s also really interesting to see the men still making the basic error of not running onto the ball. The Ferns have gained quite a bit of possession on account of the men standing still and waiting for the ball to come to them.

                    It’s working for me in The Netherlands, but I do miss the commentators.

                      Interesting that the Jamaicans don’t put their arms around each other when the anthems are sung.

                          These anthems with no vocals are awful. Could they not get a singer in to learn four anthems?

                          Not the usual spinetingling start.
