    Vixens announcing their final signings for 2019 tomorrow… I’m thinking one of Samason or Commane and then maybe Honey for the midcourt

    I’d sign Samason and Honey. Samason on multiple years and Honey one.

    What the heck!??! Why in the world would the need Venter? They really need a back-up for Phillip because she has shown to go off her game here and there. Can Venter play GA? I am so puzzled with this decision. Honey is a great choice though. Thunderbirds really could have used Venter, unless they have a really good GS lined up, but I can’t think of who that would be?

    Why Venter? Who is the backup GA?

    They needed to lassoo Samason.

    Really strange. Surely Venter will just be sitting on the bench most of the time??? May as well give that spot to a local, and especially one who is more of a GA.

    Norma Plummer threw her to the wolves at GA at the Commonwealth Games.  There have been interviews with her post the Comm Games where she has said it is an area of her game that she is wanting to become more confident with.

    Great that Venter gets an opportunity, she’s very talented, but it just seems a bit odd to me for the Vixens to sign her as I can’t imagine she’d get a lot of court time, especially if Kumwenda returns. I would have thought they’d definitely go for a local shooter, like Samason, but I’m assuming she’ll be signed as a training partner again.

    I agree, bad decision when Vic has a lot of local talent waiting to join. Disappointing too.

    Should have signed a young Victorian player. Ventor is great but they don’t need her

    I think this is when unlimited imports isn’t right. Poor Vic, NSW and Queensland talent. So many imports so no space for local talents
