      I wouldn’t pull the gun too early on an Aus/NZ final. England wouldn’t have a bad squad either looking at the young one’s coming through. If I were to pick an English squad, they’ll all have VNSL contracts as well.

        Well I wouldn’t say Lightning would be pissed but this gives the opportunity for players like Zara Everitt and Odeogborin to start. Remember, England are building so this is the perfect opportunity to blood some young guns. Also, yes Hodges would be a great signing but i’d love if Dan gave Lefebre Rademann a chance. She was amazing in the four nations cup and plays midcourt as well. Or if McCollin isn’t signed anywhere, Dan could snatch her.

          Oyesola is so underrated honestly ? I’ll go with:

          Fisher
          Cardwell
          Clarke
          Guthrie
          Oyesola
          Williams
          Quashie

          Quashie goes very well on leaning shooters. Can see her giving Wilson a run for the money.

                Here’s my 3 squads for the Cadbury series (i dont really know the mens team that well):

                SILVER FERNS
                GS- Wilson
                GA- Ekenasio
                WA- Crampton
                C- Poi
                WD- Grant
                GD- Burger
                GK- Watson
                Reserves: Mes,Selby-Rickit,Saunders,Winders,Fitzpatric

                NZ A
                GS- Bird
                GA- Faulkner
                WA- Pedersen
                C- Kersten
                WD- Heffernan
                GD- Mikaere
                GK- Fakahokotau
                Reserves:Jury, Sokolich-Beatson, Dunn,Hume,Sourness

                NZ U21
                GS- Nweke
                GA- Metuarau
                WA- Gordon
                C- Earle
                WD- Sava’inea
                GD- Waqaira
                GK- Fifita
                Reserves: Tui,Williams,Puleiata,Edgecombe,Lokotui

                I chose my squad according to the chosen athletes. Players like Toeava, Kara, Burley were not chosen because they did not make the Silver Ferns/Developing team.

                  Honestly Netball Australia has a long way to go. I mean SSN made headlines over how Charles was mistreated by firebird fans but no awareness was made about Sterling’s racist encounter on a train ride to Melbourne. This example says alot⬆️

                    Aussie reject or not but you can’t deny the fact that the Magic shooting circle is inexperienced and needs a veteran to lead by example. Williams would gain so much experience and confidence if Bassett were to sign with Magic. On the other hand this gives an opportunity for Bassett to play week in week out against different Silver Fern defenders and maybe grasp their different movements and tricks on her.

                      Samason would’ve been the first Asian Australian if she didn’t suffer from her ACL which would’ve given her some court time at the Vixens. Samason is Filipino by the way. In addition, i do think the netball community in Australia does lack diversity as this was pointed out by Mkoloma when she first arrived at Swifts. Anyways, as a Pacific Islander I loved watching Gerrard play. She would always be the attraction of interest when the Diamonds would play the Ferns in Auckland as it was unusual seeing a Pacific Islander make the Diamonds team and being put up against the Ferns which consisted of many Pacific Islanders ?

                        Its not that I don’t like Moloney, its just that people hype her over other players who perform way better then her. I remember watching a few Vixens games this season and McKinnis leaving her on court when in fact she was the problem to their midcourt drive. She’s had a few good games but c’mon the Diamonds need a playmaker who is hungry and ALWAYS PERFORMS! I see people saying Parmenter isn’t ready but reality is: SHE’S THE SOLUTION TOWARDS SHUTTING DOWN whoever the Ferns or Roses put at WA. Its been a while since I’ve come across a WD like her (Simpson and Brazil being the other).

                          Regardless of people’s hotpicks, why does everyone push Moloney too much. She has failed the Vixens midcourt alot of times and she couldn’t stand up when it mattered when Watson got sidelined for the Vixens. She also crumbles under pressure and unfortunately she’s not like her old self years back even though she’s had some good games. She would not even make my midcourt for the Diamonds. PARMENTOR for the WD bib!!!!!! Hands down a player who is hungry for ball and is ready to give it her all.

                            I really wish they get rid of this rule. So many Pasefika players have so much potential to represent their respective countries. Imagine what the Samoan national team or the Fiji pearls would look like if players in NZ were given the chance to play.

                              This is good news for the Magpies. Hopefully we see the return of Nat Medhurst and the resigning of Jovic, Ward, Allen, Bragg, Sinclair and Garrett. This team could be looking dangerous for the upcoming season, just hope the stupid 2-point shot gets taken away.

                                Well my favorite rugby team the Crusaders have already won it. Hoping the Tactix win which will be the icing on the cake. Love Canterbury and really hope the Tactix pull it off ❤

                                  Meanwhile in Fiji, I turned on the TV only to find the Giants vs Tbirds game on. NRL did not grant our local tv stations the right to broadcast their games so we had to find other alternatives and oh man, not a bad replacement at all. Also checked our local tv guide and all broadcast matches will be shown. A dream come true ?
