    De Bruin interesting, and Charlee Hodges has got sick of the Thunderbirds.  Not a bad team.

    Yes true, guess with the 1 import only they bolstered their shooting stocks.

    Charlee Hodges was not wanted by the Adelaide Thunderbirds for season 2019.

    Right well that clears that up, glad she could find a team and coming to NZ might be a good thing.

    Well, Tbirds must have some good shooters lined up OR they just don’t know what they’re doing. She looked pretty good to me.

    Pinched Purvis off the Mystics too.  With Harrison’s retirement and Purvis leaving they won’t be nearly as D heavy!

    However with Cullen and Purvis so injury prone Stars might be short of defenders.  Nice to see RB in the squad this season.

    Also nice to see Stars not being miles behind in securing their team.

    That seems really silly to me, but I trust Tania Obst knows whats shes doing. This team looks great and I think will start to push for a finals spot. Interesting about Paula Griffin taking a break from netball for a year, especially after she had such a good season.

    They don’t really have a specialist C either. MR-B or Fowler will end up playing there, or even Cullen maybe lol

    Also, good on de Bruin for keeping on with netball. She is still playing and she is 41 years old, thats impressive and glad she continuing her career at Stars!

    Cullen played C for the Ferns once, and Langman was at WA.  That was not a good outcome.

    It is a great looking roster.  I am pleased the Mila RB got a contract, she is an exciting talent.

    Is de Bruin setting a new standard here for contracted players? Anyone older or close to her age?

    Thunderbirds are dumb to lose Hodges
