    I think people are panicking because of how this season went. They didn’t really have a solid, in form WA (Kara was injured and Kolose wasn’t up to scratch) and it did affect them. Personally I think that the balance of the team is completely off but only time will tell how they’ll perform.

    IMO if Lightning win, POTM has to go to Cobden, she’s won so much ball for them. Surely she has to be in that England 12, no?

    AllieC I agree with you, she could just be burnt out and is taking it easy for her mental health.

    I have to disagree with you, the ANZP is a professional league and they prioritised young talent over imports (ofc they have restricted imports, but there’s only 2 in the whole league). Now both of their clubs and national teams have depth and talent that will sustain them for a while.

    SSN teams and NA in general need to do more to develop young players and prioritise AUS players over imports. The ANL has been replaced so their development will be affected again. I just feel like some of the teams go after imports as a first option rather than a last resort. Some of the imports in the league should’ve been Australian players imho. If TBirds were going to drop Shimmin then at least bring in an experienced import. Wilson could be a great player in a few years time but she still needs to grow and that spot could’ve gone to a home player.

    Thunderbirds have signed Latanya Wilson.

    I thought they would’ve gone for local SA talent but hoorah to another import🙄. After the 2021 season, SSN need to start limiting the imports. Having international talent is good and it helps the development of other countries, but the purpose of this league is not to develop other national teams.

    Too many imports are hurting the Diamonds and until they introduce a limit, I don’t see them winning another gold medal.

    Tbh I don’t know why they’ve gone for ANOTHER import. This signing just screams panic imo, they let Shimmin go, then they find out that Guscoth is going back home. Regardless it will be good for Sterling as she’ll probably feel more settled.

    I would take McDonald over those two. I don’t really see the hype with Honey if I’m being honest and with 2-3 players in the squad that can already play WD, they don’t need Smith just yet. McDonald can play WA and imo has the game for it.

    I think it looks good. I wish they changed the bibs though, I don’t like how blocky they look🤷🏾‍♀️

    I’m going to be honest, I didn’t really expect that.

    The signing of Stanton just screams ‘tried to sign a better shooter and failed’ (perhaps one of the Lightning shooters or Glasgow?) just because of how late Fever announced that they were dropping her.

    It’s a smart move for her though, she’ll have the chance to rejuvenate her game and gain her confidence. However after looking on Insta and Twitter, I feel sorry for her. Some of the comments are terrible and no one should have to read that.

    I haven’t heard much about Barkmeyer but at least they’ve got one VIC shooter.

    As for McDonald, they could still sign her as a WA/GA slide. She’s more of a feeding GA and could slot into WA quite nicely. Tbh they don’t really need Smith yet as they have Eddy, Weston and Moloney who can cover WD.
