    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.

    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

    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.

    I’ve been a Mystics supporter for years as well as a Tactix one.  I ride the highs and the lows but my loyalty will never waver :)

    I think this is such an underwhelming line-up. No matter how defensively strong Magic are, Falkner is a really shaky shot. Hopefully ALM excels and McPhee steps up to give NZ another young GS option.

    I just hate the imbalance – Magic are devoid of any shooting presence and the Steel/Pulse have proven starting players (likely O’Connell/Metuarau) warming the bench.

    What do people think Potgieter’s reason may have been for leaving? I guess a few more $$ but it can’t be anything massive.
