    They haven’t announced the starting 7 yet…..

    I just re-read the Match Report from Thursday’s game. Watson won’t beat Bassett for the whole game. NZ will need to make the change they did on Thursday very quickly if Bassett goes on a spree – put Kopua back on her, Rore at GD and Burger at WD. Sorry Jane, you’ve been amazing, but you can’t stop Bassett for 60 mins.

    Caitlin Thwaites has played well against NZ too and stood up against SA. I believe any four shooters can get the job done but I’d have Cbass and Wood and then bring Tippet on at half time.

    I agree Thwaites has been great, I just think they’ll go with the Captain and the one who’s got a record of standing up in big games.

    Silver Ferns, I am proud already!
    From 4th at Commonwealth Games, to the final of the World Cup!

    Beat the best England team ever produced, and showed that you can compete with Aust.

    Bring home gold! Kopua Folau and Langman deserve this title.
    Play hard, dont hold back and PLAY THE KIWI WAY!!!!!

    Aust will be bloody tough, BUT you got this!

    Noels, legend already.
    I wonder who the crowd will back since England are out……

    Watson v Langman
    Bruce v Folau
    Kopua/Watson v Basset

    Key match ups.

    Play hard ladies!

    The crowd will support NZ, even though you beat us we don’t want Aus winning again.

    Plus the stress does me in

    I truly can’t handle it

    Doomed to watch games ONLY when I know the outcome lol

    Usually the less stressful way Minkie.

    As a kiwi, I think it’s one hurdle too much for the ferns to overcome. But honestly, the fact they even get a podium finish, is win in of itself.

    BUT……….

    If the ferns pull off an upset, it will be the first time since 2006, that the Diamonds won’t have a pinnacle title under their belt. And that ferns team 03-06 was arguably the best team assembled in our history. Anyway can’t wait :mrgreen:

    Kiwi watching from Australia here. Really hope that the GF won’t have the channel 9 commentators “dubbed” over the whole game, like they did for Aus vs SA semi last night. Couldn’t hear any of the umpire calls and the audience cheers were drowned out. Though, not a huge fan of the English commenting either! Hopefully it will be Jenny Woods with Tamsin Greenway.

    Don’t worry Kiwis, the All Blacks will win in 2 months time.

    I feel your pain Tasman, I’m the same as you but I can guarantee that is exactly what we are going to get.  I don’t object to the Australian commentators but hate what it takes from the atmosphere of the game.

    I’m not sure who Australia will pick. But for heaven’s sake remember the 3rd quarter.

    SSN Round 5. The SCL put 25 points on GWS in the 3rd quarter.

    That’s the threat. That’s NT telling her team to go up a gear. That’s what SCL do (Apart from v Vixens).

    So whoever (7) finishes the 2nd for Australia should start the 3rd.

    I’m nervous as hell. Can’t wait for Sharni.

    I have no TV where I am. I will be watching it live on Channel Netball Scoop.

    Not only will I have to trust Gretel. I have to trust all on here.

    Bruce for MVP. LA to resign. TP to apply and NA to decline.

    You may draw some confusion in the half time pep talk?! :blum3:
