    Actually I would go so far as to say

    2 matches in the 2018 CWG, each with a one goal winning shot that has changed England Netball.

    Yes Helen Housby’s was the icing on the cake the cherry on the top

    BUT

    Jo Harten’s last second goal in the semis finals against Jamaica (of all countries) was the trigger point.

    This is England’s time.
    Never will they have such a strong team again! No weaknesses at all.
    Harten back at GS where she belongs.

    Any news on Nat H? Is she back playing?

    Nat H had a little run around against Thunder in the warm up game this weekend….. hopefully that’s a good sign and there have been no ill-effects today!

    Absolutely – I’d say Jo’s goal was way more important because we never really looked like winning up to that point!

    That grinding out the win against Jamaica was incredibly important. It gave the team a massive boost of self belief, it put all those CWG 2014 lost by x1 goals properly into the past.  I still believe Australia lost that final because all their previous matches didn’t test them to the limit. By the time England got there they were battle hardened.
