    Great summary Tully

    Did Rav play a bit of WA at Collingwood, or was that just WD?

    Hm…not super pumped about this signing. I would prefer for FB to develop the Dunkley/Cassidy combo.

    I was willing to come to that article with an open mind but man oh man JFitz is bitter, and somee of her comments were straight up nasty.

    “CBass [Bassett] has had pressure on her lately as the Diamonds captain and as the shooter and the fact that the Diamonds haven’t been that successful for the last few years,” she said. “That has been a heavy weight on her shoulders.”

    Reads as if she is slightly bitter about not getting the Diamonds coach role…

    Part of me wonders if Firebirds / Jencke released this today so that it would be buried by the Bassett story.

    I know she has gotten heat recently, but Jencke revolutionised the Firebirds and I think she lead the way for the league in increasing player fitness standards and the professionalism of netball teams. I still remember having my jaw to the floor seeing how fit the Firebirds were in Jencke’s second season (and first full offseason) as coach.

    That being said, she has been coach for a long time. I am looking forward to see what a new coach can bring with such a talented group.

    Bueta may also not start the season – I think she is due January from her insta posts? So Dwan may very well have full court time for a decent chunk of next season anyway at Firebirds.

    The argument is that if Collingwood do not want to participate in SSN and do not renew their licence at end of 2021 there could be new teams for 2022. That is something SSN will need to keep a close eye on next year and they would be crazy not to plan for it.

    Jbss – totally agree, Geelong would make much more sense than Collingwood!

    I don’t think the suggestion is that Collingwood will lose it – the suggestion is that they will opt out because it is too expensive/too little reward and they won’t want it.

    This sounds very likely to me. There really hasn’t been much defection from Vixens supporters to the Magpies, and the Magpies have underperformed.

    If Collingwood does not stay, would an ACT team make more sense than Geelong? It would be great to get the AIS involved, like back in the Canberra Darters days.

    Swifts cost Swifts the game. You can only say that “three calls” lost you the game if your team made no errors and got no favourable calls all game.

    In fairness, Liz would not be very good at her job if she said next week will be a dead rubber. She is supposed to build excitement for viewers.

    I was really unimpressed with Wood and her attitude on court.

    Sunday getting the MVP is the right choice and her interview was hilarious. I now love her.

    ATN was screaming for the supershots in the second half. You could tell she backed herself to get them. Great to see her confidence up.
