    She didn’t say all that much. But really, the title is a bit misleading. If she had any secret “plans” to win, she wouldn’t be outlining them in an article and in any case, surely they don’t need any brilliant plan, they just have to keep playing as they have been.

    I have a feeling with all the emotion of winning yesterday, that England have already played their final.

    This could be a big, very big win to Australia.  I would love England to win, but don’t think they will get within 15.

    Australia by 20 – 25.  They’ll be out to prove the same type of domination over England as they have over Jamaica and NZ.

    Harten would have to be firing better than she has in the two games I have watched so if the D shuts down Housby they’ll romp in.

    Why England reaching the Commonwealth Games netball final is a game-changing moment

    When England star Geva Mentor heads to her local supermarket on Australia’s Sunshine Coast, where she plays her club netball, people know who she is. It is a recognition befitting of her status as the best goal keeper, and one of the best players in any position, on the planet.

    But when she returns to Bournemouth, where she was born and spent the first 20 years of her life, she slips back into anonymity.

    Full Story

    I like Jono’s umpiring when he isn’t umpiring NZ, he umpires more like an Aussie umpire than any other umpire.  That makes him good in my books :biggrin:

    What a chance to witness a small slice of history. Congratulations to those who will be at the venue.

    Just forecasting the full treat of ads from Channel 7. However, I’ll take Coxy and the TV access – with open arms.

    I like that little grab from Jinxibo re Geva. I’ll read the full story after I post. On the Sunshine Coast. They know that whilst our defenders threaten their circle, Geva (in collaboration) is doing the same down the other end.

    I think Australia will win. I can’t predict Umpiring. I’ve seen the best of Umpires miss a good game. Sometime they may as well take the shot after a decision. You know what I mean? I can’t predict the 1 percenters or the 100 percenters. Who reacts best under pressure. I definitely won’t be predicting anything more than a win by somewhere from 1-5. It would be nice to have a healthy lead and watch the last quarter with a normal heart rate though.  :fie: :focus: :cool2:
