    @bones Oh yeah, great win. But they need to string wins together and get combos sorted, plus ensure all the shooters fire. Folau at GA shouldn't have to do everything because the GS is unreliable or shooting poorly (like what we saw with Mes). I will add having Langman back in the midcourt makes a huge difference. That was something horribly obvious at the Comm Games, the defence winning a turnover, only for it to fall apart in the midcourt.

    I'm sorry but due to your writing skiting I see nothing but lurid innuendo. I think.



  • @mokey Agree with all of that - but credit for Langman being back has to go to Taurua

    The reliance on Folau is a real worry as she is the absolute epitome of a confidence player. Probably defines one more than anyone in any sport. When the force is with her she is incandescent and is nailing them from everywhere- miss a couple under the posts and / or get bullied - not so much.



  • I don't think it's a coincidence that Folau just had a blinder. To me it looks like Taurua has got Folau playing better - Folau seems to moving around a hell of a lot more - it seems like they actually have a plan on attack (and defence) that the team is buying into.



  • @dogmeat Absolutely. The circle can't revolve around one player. The midcourters need to be confident that whoever is free is capable of shooting the goal, or at least be right there for a rebound shot. The GS should be pretty much planted under the goal like Irene used to be, and have a very high accuracy rate. Then the GA can zip in and out to get closer or take the wider shots.

    She’s the netball version of Beauden Barrett. Except he’s not married to a homophobe bible bashing over rated rugby player..

    Maybe he could spend more time praying to the sky fairy to keep wifey's shooting % in the mid 90s
