    Wasn’t sure where else to put this but SSN sent out a chance to win a Diamonds signed netball alongside a survey they wanted people to take, and interestingly, as well as question regarding two-point shots and whatever, there was a media section about where people ge their info from, and netball scoop was one of five options!

    Strange isn’t it.  Maybe Maria is right in saying she won’t play for the Tbirds until after the worlds.  As the SSN might not start until after that.

    Channel 9 prob won’t want the comp to have a break of a few weeks.  And surely all the countries will want their players back for a good build up,

    not a couple of weeks to sort out combos etc.

    But the World Champs aren’t until July. It is not feasible to have top class players without any game time until after that. It would’ve been better to have the SSN start in February like the ANZP.

    When she signed for the Tbirds.  It was mentioned in NZ media articles that she would join the Tbirds after the world champs.

    That makes no sense.

    Seems like I’ve got to go looking for that.

    I’m willing to bet this is just plain wrong. And by the way, Maria didn’t say this, the NZ Herald did.

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/sport/news/article.cfm?c_id=4&objectid=12132341

    “Folau will join her new Thunderbirds teammates after next year’s Netball World Cup.”

    .

    This is more like it.

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/netball/107362652/silver-ferns-shooter-maria-folau-signs-with-adelaide-thunderbirds-for-2019

    “Folau will link up with the Thunderbirds for the first time in November, after next month’s Constellation Cup series which pits the Silver Ferns against the Australian Diamonds across four tests, two on either side of the Tasman.”

    .

    Why would you do some pre-season with a team, then not play for them for about 6 or 7 months. And why would Tbirds even have her in the team if that was the case?

    Cant wait for the new season to start.

    I am tipping Vixens v Giants GF 😊

    Fever (unfortunately) wont make it into the finals this year.

    My super early prediction… Fever vs Vixens GF – Fever taking it out.

    JFR is virtually unstoppable and Teague-Neeld will fit nicely into the frontline. Vixens have huge depth and will also be tough to beat.

    Magpies also a chance. Nelson is such a talent and a great signing. With classy players around her she is certain to improve in leaps and bounds.

    I honestly don’t think Fowler is unstoppable, she was certainly shut down a few times last year. I think with Medhurst not feeding her, they are going to find it a whole lot harder to get it into Fowler than they did before. Maybe after a fews years of playing with each other, Coyler, Charles and ATN will get a whole lot better, and they might be hard to stop.

    I find it hard to make a prediction this early, but if I did this would be it. Magpies are essentially a whole new team, but they have quality players, so they might start the season slow, and just make it into finals, but then go on to do very well. Vixens also very strong, with not a lot of changes, and Thwaites and Kumwenda are somewhat similiar. Fever fairly unchanged, but Medhurst was a MASSIVE part of there game plan, so it may take quite a bit of time to form a decent connection there. Giants have a strong front line, but weak back-line, and MAY make it to finals, but probably won’t go very deep. Thunderbirds and Lightning are the two “dark horses” for me, with significant changes to their line-ups using players that haven’t played SSN before. I think they will have that advantage of players not knowing how to play them for the first few rounds, but I don’t think they will make the Grand final (although Lightning do have Noeline as the coach, so anything is possible). In the end, I think it will come down to a Magpies/Vixens Grand Final, with Vixens taking out the title. Actually, I change my mind. I reckon Magpies will take out the title, lead by Medhurst and Mentor, the M&M’s.

    Are you a fever supporter?  I am, but i honestly think it will take a few years to really build the GA position up to what it was previously with Medhurst.

    Agree re Magpies too, they have a formidable line up and i cant wait to watch Fever v Magpies in Perth!

    Imagine if Lightning won again with a whole new line up!  And then the SF ferna go on to win the world cup  :eek:  surely Noels would go down in history.
