3 in a row - can we compete with the all these clubs recruiting ? see townsville picked up a ex gonzaga player recently and the wnba imports are doing well for their respective clubs.

would be worth a chat even for a scout on the wnba players as she would have matched up on these players recently and would have to have known their handle

She has burnt every bridge in Australia and not 1 club nor coach would want her, her privce tag and attitude.

Lightnings 1st reason of existance is not necessarily to be the best, win a title etc. and Erin will not suit them (or some of them).

^^^Is this above post for real!^^^ All teams in WNBL (Lightning Included) should be in the business of trying to win a Championship! Otherwise all those sponsors might need to look elsewhere with their corporate money! Erin won't under any circumstance play for Buckle as he has a close association with Graf. Graf's snub of Erin (London Olympics) looks very petty & farcical in hinsight now.

Anyway, the thread is about adel v bendigo..

Looked like they had a good first half.. well Suz did, and then she was kept quiet in the second half.

where to now from here for them?

And you reckon Graf looks petty?

Adelaide don't get enough out of their guards, Hodges is slowly getting better which will help their front line and Suzi but Screen and Marino have done little to help create scoring options. Screen was a starter in the Opals team at the Olympics, almost as big of a joke as leaving Erin out of the team.

Has the opals become the matilda's? Only certain people are allowed in?

Yes, those that make the saem commitments of putting the team first like all other 20 members of the squad.

The one person who was not committed because they wanted to put themselves first didnt make it.

Would the last thread say that about Taylor if she didn't get injured ? A few things need to change b4 next Big comp .

Maher needs to be appointed as soon as his current contract expires . Players need to be moved on like Bat girl and Screen , and Madgen needs to be included with Phillips . Only have to veterans on roster Taylor and Jackson..

Yes, because Taylor had made a commitment to make all Pre-Olympic camps and tours, and had informed her WNBA team as such.

If she then didnt honor her commitment to her Natinal team she wouldnt have been expected to make the team.

Sorry here I go again.
Screen only averages 1 to 2 field goals per match in the WNBL, was supposed to be there for her defence, but I counted a player scoring 19 points directly on her in a half, then she seems to get fouled out most matches, sorry, not a fan. Does'nt have moves,plays more like a netballer Was a joke that Madgen, Foley etc did'nt make the Olympic team ahead of her.

Re Lightening, Mansfield shows promise, but yes, we get killed by other teams guards and their much better outside shooting.
