    Also it said on the Magic press release that ALM is NZ born haha! Didn’t realise she came in as a replacement for the Mystics in 2016 either.

    I have heard this from several posts. What off court issues does Abigail have?

    Someone in the know please tell.

    I’m not in the know and I could be wrong, but I thought it had to do with a poor work ethic, not training hard enough etc. Which is sort of the same issues with Kristina Brice. And now they’re both in NZ. So I guess that tells you something.

    That’s a bit rude, are you implying New Zealanders are lazy.

    Thanks Ian.

    They will probably fit in well with the NZ teams.

    Might help Falkner, who had a poor season this year, I expect much better in 2019.

    Falkner would have performed much better with one of the best shooters in the world, in Potgeiter, rather than a second grade, short GS, who relies on movement rather than height and holding. Unless of course Falkner performs better in a moving circle. Personally, I think that shooting end is going to be eaten alive by Taxtix and Pulse defenders.

    McPhee was scoring 50 plus goals in Beko right? Tall shooter and a kiwi so I hope she does well.
    LM will be well in NZ. Her playing style will suit NZ
    Hope she does well and decides to play for NZ

    Ian never used say shady things like that. Always Mr PC never takes sides. Throws the odd dad joke. Must be getting bitter in your old age huh?

    Happy to see ALM picked up by NZ! I could see her being similiar to Ekenasio, they’ve both had a stint at the Firebirds.

    I really can’t see that shooting end standing up to our other teams defenders.  Faulkner has spells of brilliance but if she takes a knock then her shooting goes to pieces.  I hope I am wrong, and that leading this shooting end is the making of her.

    I have to be hopeful Maryann that they’ll be OK lol. I’ll be a Magic supporter regardless, would be awesome to make it home for a game or two as well.
