    Is anyone else a little annoyed about the basketball commentary during a netball match?

    I get that it is your wheelhouse, but do some research before you jump on air…

    So proud of the Aussies. I’m the first to admit I had written them off. Jamaica just looked too good – especially in what was supposed to be their weakest area, the midcourt. But they shook off all the doubters and showed excellent growth mindset.

    Klau is my favourite player going around atm (I can’t go past a Swift!). I was so excited to see her come into the game and she was just what the Aussie defence needed. Very good decision making by Marinkovic – much better than the pool game.

    The key to the win for me was Braz and Moloney- just like in the semi. Great pressure in defence and did a wealth of work in attack.

    I was glad to see the Jamaican girls with smiles on their faces. It’s disappointing to lose, but a silver is still a massive achievement and should be celebrated.

    Loving Ash Braz! Doing so much work to shutdown Metcalf. I’d like to see Klau come on at GK. Bruce has given away a few silly penalties and I can see it getting expensive as the game goes on.

    A number of the 50/50 decisions are going the way of the diamonds. If that changes, they’re in big trouble.

    There needs to be changes in the midcourt for the ferns. The ball is getting into the Jamaican goal circle way too quickly

    I didn’t think there would be such a difference in the score this early! Fantastic quarter from Jamaica

    I’m tipping a Jamaica v England final. I just don’t think the ferns have the attacking firepower to beat Wilson and Sterling. And I’m not confident in Australia’s ability to swing momentum without a timeout.

    For all the debate about imports in the SSN, I actually don’t think that’s the thing having the most impact. For me it’s the ability to work out a game plan on the fly and shifting momentum themselves without talking to their coach every 5 minutes.

    England with a 10 goal win! I would have predicted a closer scoreline.

    England midcourt defence lifted in that last quarter and that made all the difference.

    The changes made by the Ferns were really smart in that quarter. They seemed to have more movement in the attacking third and the defensive pressure was making the Roses more hesitant. Loving how close this contest is.

    Jamaica produced the goods when it counted. I think a change needed to be made in attack – Wood was just not driving into the circle enough. Would have liked to have seen Aryang have more game time – I think she has the aerial ability to match well against this team.

    What a game! Braz, Wood and Bueta the standouts for Australia for me. The whole Jamaican defence end is working so well together – there is no easy ball for the diamonds.

    I totally agree that the Diamonds could rest Hadley and Wood if they needed to. The other players that are left can easily cover the positions needed. The only problem would come if they were desperate for a change if the Jamaican defence are completely dominating.

    The Aus v Sco game was closer than the scoreline reflects. I thought the Scottish girls had some really good passages of play, just cancelled that out with some silly errors at times.

    For Australia, I really liked Braz in C. She showed that she can feed the moving circle quite well.

    This T&T side would be so different with Sam Wallace. The defence end are winning back ball, but the attack are just not gelling. Cardwell is having a great game and is definitely showing why the Thunderbirds signed her.

    I’m another one who doesn’t understand this move to Fever for Jenner. I know her starting spot has been taken RBD, but Bec Bulley has been the assistant coach to Akle, who is well known for using her bench. So I can only imagine that Bulley will be quite similar. Jenner would warm the bench much less at Firebirds than she will at Fever I predict.

    Got an email from Swifts membership this morning thanking Bec Bulley for her time as she’s leaving the club to take on the Firebirds Head Coach job.
