Earlier this year
Opals vs USA Exhibition Game
Pretty good hitout for the Opals this morning I thought, and worthy of not being buried in a Liz thread.
The prime movers in Mitchell, Allen, Talbot & Magbegor all stepped up as needed, O'Hea & Tolo showed that they still have a place, and George & Ebzery both took a while to get going but ended up both being important contributors.
I thought the end result was more about how awful the USA was rather than how good we were, but ultimately I don't have my sights set on winning a gold, I just want this team to fight for a medal. And we look up for the fight.
Very proud of the Opals. It has been a lot of years since we've beaten the USA senior team.
