      Don’t think SR is a no brainer and I’m not saying Bailey is. Nor is Maria’s future clear, she has to be signed to a club.
      I’d take Maia BUT if Maria is there Maia has to be used, not bench sitting. Not much point taking shooters but only constantly using two all the time.

        Think you’d find that was Maria’s choice. No fuss, end of. Maybe she’ll be at Quad series? Maybe something else is in the pipe work to recognize her? Without playing other shooters like LA did I think the Ferns will have to pull lots of rabbits out of there hats. Plus others made WC game successful, Jane Watson, Katrina Rore, where do you start and finish? In saying that if it was Maria’s last appearance, they have blown the chance to publicly acknowledge her but again maybe it was her choice. She’s had how many yrs of fame, maybe wanted it away from her?

            I agree it didnt work
            Regardless of whether is was Bailey/TP/Maia playing. I don’t agree with all the contacts called in a 5 minute spree.
            The only thing I like about LA is she rotates ALL the players. We’ve put ALL of our eggs in one basket, Maria/Meels, and only won by 1 point. The other 3 shooters have had zilch game time so to expect them to jump running is alot. It was bound to go belly up, the umpire just speed it along.

              Thanks Jenny, great writeup
              My understand was the umpire had games in Singapore right up until the last minute then quickly caught a plane to land in Perth just in time for the Diamonds training session. Either the offer wasn’t extended or it was too late in the day for the same to happen with Ferns. Roles reversed Diamonds wouldn’t be happy if Ferns did this, Diamonds got the rough end of umpire and lost. Fair call?
              You don’t mind loosing if your crap but you do mind loosing with all the inconsistency.

                If you’re worried about umpires feelings, try putting yourself in Bailey’s. She’s always getting crucified. Umpires calls either make or break a game. Whether it was right or wrong putting Bailey on it was Nolenes decision.

                  I’d have surprised but pleasantly if the Ferns had won. Winning by 1 point in past games is always dicey. But yes it would’ve been a better fairer game if umpires were different. When you hear the opposition’s commentators querying alot of calls that says alot. It’s not going to change outcome but doesn’t leave a pleasant feeling against LA and Diamonds. God imagine if the Ferns did that.

                    And the other 3 penalties?

                      Interesting
                      Diamonds got offered a chance to have the Umpires at there training which they took up on
                      Ferns weren’t given same option and found out after game
                      That is digusting, does money speak that far? 30 million.

                          Was only a few games ago LA had a meeting with Umpires after a loss. Ironically the next game was the opposite in favour of Aus

                            Agree it wouldn’t have changed result
                            NZ were damn lucky to win games by 1 point
                            My point (lol) was if roles reversed am 100% sure Aus/LA would be absolutely livid at umpires.

                              Have fun laughing?
                              Can imagine the uproar if the show was in the other foot.
                              Laughing aside, anyone regardless of country who felt comfortable with the umpiring needs there head read.
                              As for Bailey 4 contacts in 5 minutes? One she wasn’t even near a player???

                                Commentators might have been summarising ‘if Noeline didn’t coach after the CC’. All the comments I’ve seen, both written and live, is that she’s coach for the CC but after that ‘who knows’ (her exact words on tv). Am assuming if she’s going back to NZ, relocating and settling in, re connecting with family, all takes time and alot of physical/mental effort. As a Ferns coach when’s the time she needs to be back on board?

                                  Yeah I thought so too re petty. But remember quotes can sometimes ‘miss’ parts. I don’t follow LA so don’t know what her way of thinking is or how her quotes could be interpreted. She must be happy and relieved Noelines no longer coaching a Aus team as well as a national team to another country.
