It was a good match from the Tbirds, they were largely consistent for the full sixty which was nice to see. I’d really like to see an Allen and Sinclair circle more often, especially against Stirling who is so strong in the air. Thought Nankeville was great again, surely she is pushing for Diamonds squad she is such a versatile player and is only

To be honest, I don’t think Alexander is wrong. If you’re a bench impact player for the majority of your season (which is what it looks like it will be) to then being the starting 7 Captain of your international team that will surely impact your confidence and if nothing else, match fitness and recent experience.
However, can Julie Fitzgerald be blamed for putting her on the bench when they need the 2 point shots being taken to stay in a good portion of their games? Probably not.
If Alexander is saying CBass can shoot from the 2 point shot range, is this not the time to be doing it? Missing a few super shots a game isn’t going to impact her national selection and ability on the international court, but surely sitting on the bench for a large portion of the season will?

Thwaites is having an amazing season but that doesn’t mean it would transfer to a solid international performance. She probably feels a lot less pressure this year to perform at GS and is enjoying her run out at GA. In terms of defenders I do feel that Mannix has had a great season and probably deserves the call up, however I’d like to see her out at GD more since most of the Diamonds defenders are flexible across both positions such as Bruce & Klau.
I also really rate Kate Eddy in GD and she has played with Klau for two seasons at Swifts so could be a great shout to get her some experience now ahead of Comm Games selections etc.Zara CollingsParticipantSeptember 1, 2020 at 9:55 pmPost count: 313Zara CollingsParticipantAugust 31, 2020 at 7:27 amPost count: 313Zara CollingsParticipantAugust 27, 2020 at 8:37 pmPost count: 313Zara CollingsParticipantAugust 27, 2020 at 7:09 pmPost count: 313Zara CollingsParticipantAugust 27, 2020 at 6:49 pmPost count: 313Zara CollingsParticipantAugust 27, 2020 at 8:30 amPost count: 313Zara CollingsParticipantAugust 26, 2020 at 9:54 pmPost count: 313
I agree Ian, it definitely looks like teams are just ignoring it this round. Perhaps because it’s the first round they are replaying an opponent rather than just going in with no expectations. Since we are getting to the second round of all the matchups I wonder if that will continue throughout the rest of the season.
