    Parda,
    Your list is everything I have found frustrating about the new site. Add in emoji’s….

    If you can sort all of that I’m sure it will make a lot of people happy.

    I guess I expected that the new site would simply be an update of the old one with everything simply transferred across. When I found it didn’t have a lot of the old features and I had to keep trying to find stuff I simply gave up and stopped looking.

    So, I am really pleased that you are pro-actively looking to add those items on your list. And appreciate the work that you and the Committee do to allow us all to be a part of this.

    I mainly use a desktop, occasionally a tablet and rarely my phone (hate the screen size – old eyes)

    Well, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by what I saw yesterday. Watched Steel/Wasps and Mystics/Pulse.

    Shooting for Steel by O’Connnell and McCollin was excellent. Heffernan still a bit wobbly and trying long shots that she didn’t need to. Intensity was good even with the changes made during the game.
    Wasps a tad slow to begin, but by the end were keeping pace. Dunn will need to play every game as the other 2 were dodgy. And they only have 11 players.

    Mystics looking sharp. If in doubt hiff it into Nweke. Who had very good hands and took most of the high balls into her. Clearly Nweke is the shooting weapon of choice for Mystics. And why not? It’ll be interesting to see if the Tui/Mes combo is used at all.

    Pulse were ok. A couple of missed shots in that last qtr that could’ve pulled them to within 1, and then the game got away on them. Metuarau is fantastic at feeding and creating play and space, but her shooting isn’t as accurate as it once was. Mind you Dunn was only on 76%.

    Most accurate shooting by a NZ team – Steel on 83%. But if their two main shooters keep up those %s and the team get turnover ball, Steel will be fine next season.

    So, starts 2 months after ANZP and will likely conflict with Olympics in July/August.
    And why just announce the first week? And then two days later release the rest?

    I made the prediction that NT would stay on for the Con Cup and Quad Series and I predict she’ll be back after that.
    Why? As a coach she lead a new team in a new League and built it from scratch to playing in 3 GFs and winning two titles.
    In 12 months she took a team ‘in the pit’ and turned them into World Champions.
    The next 4 years offers a new challenge. Developing and growing new players/Asst Coaches towards Birmingham in 2022 and Cape Town in 2023. She has the confidence and support of NNZ CEO and Board and also ANZP Franchises.
    She needs a rest and time to re-charge. Bit I’m confident she’ll be back.

    Yippee.
    This means dedicated Pop-Up Channels for events so that we will get to see every netty game. Unlike last year when TVNZ chose which games they thought we should see.

    Going to be very interesting to see how that shooting end stacks up.
    Corbin
    Cardwell
    Drakeford-Lewis
    Fisher
    Haythornthwaite – although she will probably be used at WA.

    Ella Clarke not included.

    Could be a Proteas series win against England A. If Maweni and Pretorious are playing that shooting end will crumble like a stale cracker.

    It’s one of the Heffernan twins. Kate or Georgia. I’d be guessing but I think it’s Kate.

    Maybe it’s this:

    And it’s been posted to the ANZP website early?

    Shame her career ran parallel with Bassetts.

    But now is the right time I guess. At 32 another four year cycle is a long time.

    I have always enjoyed watching her play. Can remember her with Vixens way back when they won the ANZC and then her time at Pulse.

    So, Jono is back at Intl level. Wonder if this means we’ll see him in 2020 ANZP?

    And Anso Kemp, first noticed her at WYC, very good Umpire. Glad she is becoming a common fixture on the Intl circuit.

    Great story. Can’t wait to read part 2.

    These insights into players are fantastic.

    But is it the administration or the players?

    Is it unreasonable for NJ to ask players to make themselves available for trials? Don’t the Silver Ferns and Diamonds have to attend trials for selection?

    Seems to me some of those players think better they are to good to attend trials.

    And the comments attributed to Sterling show a certain amount of arrogance.
