    Agree Tully re Burger, I didn’t think she set the world on fire last time and today was no different. There were quite a few occasions when Tippett was free and she totally missed it.

    The Firebirds were really struggling in attack which isn’t surprising when you have 2/4 new players. I would have kept Mi Mi on and let Potgeiter settle in.

    Swifts 3 year plan really coming into fruition (without Wright!)

    If Proud is out for the rest of the SSN, do they look at a import, or do they have enough cover???.

    Nat H…………………….. is not playing until after the WC, and who knows she might still not be right.

    I would wonder how Claire O’Brein would be going with her recovery? Obviously, wouldn’t want to push her either

    NZs Whitney Souness is a option (if allowed), she would fit in well with her speed.

    No! Halpin (who played very well) and O’Brien (who is back playing).

    In saying all of this though. We don’t actually know what is wrong with Maddy’s knee yet. Let’s not replace her before we even know what happened. This Swifts team is so strong and tight they don’t need to pull someone in from elsewhere.

    Swifts impressive. Klau confirmed.

    Firebirds. Just needs more work.

    Fingers crosed it’s not what it looked like but in the case it is, hasn’t Abbey retuned from injury?

    Totally gutted for Maddy. If it turns out to be her ACL it will be a huge loss to the team. Halpin played well but seemed tentative to put the ball up to Wallace. The Swifts will really miss Proud’s feeding which has been sublime so far this season. Seeing the team break down after the game was heartbreaking.

    The Swifts need an attacker as they seem to have defence covered at this stage.

    Rosalie Jenke – as people have already questioned, “When will her coaching be put under the microscope?”

    A far too easy pattern to see is that when great firebirds leave, the performance of the team drops. The coaches left when Laura Geitz & Clare McMeniman retired. Geitz return in 2018 saw the FBs have a great season, only just being knocked out prior to finals.

    Should they now drop the “Queensland” part of their name?

    Funny that there are so many players that Rosalie rejected now playing in the SCL…Too proud to admit when she is wrong.

    I feel for the FB fans.

    Thought Potgieter played really well for someone who just jumped off the plane the day before and has been introduced into a completely new team. A few turnovers and penalties but overall I was impressed with her.

    The interesting thing is with Potgieter and Tippett will anybody actually take a shot more than  1.5 meters away from the hoop? They both like being as close as possible and throw the ball out of the circle when they probably should shoot it.

    The bonus point system seems to be a bit of a hindrance also, I thought when you are up by 20 you can afford to empty your bench and give everybody a run but with the BP it looks like teams aren’t so keen which I think will be detrimental to the development of the bench players. In other words I thought they should have given Amorangi a run.

    I wonder how far away O’Brien is from being ready? Haven’t seen this game yet but Halpin is probably more of a specialist WD, wish Haythornthwaite could play since she was brought in for WA/GA cover.

    I think the advertising stickers need to go around the sides of the court.

    To me it did look like the classic ACL with the inward turn then shoot to the outer but hopefully not.  It’s awful to see how many of these there are.
