Swain will suit up tomorrow night for the Flames - good news? Or does this unsettle them a little?

TSV vs Southside looking like a washout ......

Washout confirmed by the WNBL

The league will now work with both teams to attempt to find a suitable date to reschedule the game. Should that not be possible, then Rule 2.11e from WNBL Rules will be applied:

2.11e WNBL League Management will assess if the game is required to be replayed depending on ladder position and if the game is needed to determine playoffs position. If abandoned prior tip off and not replayed, the teams effected by the abandoned game win/loss percentage will be determined by one (1) less game.

Note: Ladder positions in the WNBL are determined by win / loss percentage. If teams are on the same win / loss percentage, the next determinant is the split between the two teams.

Pretty sure it was comments on this post, and that the original poster has subsequently deleted the comments (you can tell it was comments on one of this guys posts by looking at the 'add a comment' at the bottom of Harry's screenshot).

Still confused about the fish emojis!

Were Bendigo really in great form though Luc? They didn't exactly have a formidable opponent (sorry Caps, love you).

What has happened to Maley? She used to be such a respectable, hard working player who just got the job done but she seems to have turned into a mini Cambage.

Okay, maybe a bit harsh because nobody is/could be THAT psychotic but she definitely isn't the sweet little thing she was. I'm far from fans of any of the Frolings but that knock and the aftermath were savage.

I'd offer that she doesn’t need to be a sweet little thing... but if all players could tone down the whinging to the refs for calls, that would be great.

Take out the Southside game recently & you'll find that Bendigo’s form has been building well before belting the Lynx in Perth. Ally Wilson, Griffen & Kraker have collectively hit a purple patch which has them ultra competitive with the ability to beat anyone on any given night.

Agree re Bendigo, and just like we have seen in every other team, you take away a key piece (KG at the start of the season) and it's tougher to get wins.

Give the load of the tournament - 3 games in 4 days if I recall correctly - I don't think anyone wants to come into that fresh off an acl injury with only 20 mins of wnbl under their belt. Particularly with WNBA preseason around the corner.

However, talbots conditioning and strength displayed today are a real testament to her work in rehab. Not many players come out and look that good in their first game. Excited for her wnba season!!

Yeah, could hardly ask for a better first hit-out after such a long break. Good stuff.

That was a great comeback, really happy for Talbot, the whole team seemed to lift too. Mansfield's recent form has been some of her best too. It's just a shame Borlase was out, you really want to see them all together.

No Aari = Perth away with fairies. It's been rough. Doubt they have enough games back with her after the break this week to get back into finals.

Top of table is looking interesting though, I don't think any of the final four want to face Sydney in the form they're in. Townsville doing better away from home too is a bit weird. At least when we get to finals things will be interesting.

I've noticed the same thing with Maley, she seems to whinge constantly and looks like she's miserable in most games. I'm out of the loop, what happened after she smashed Froling in the face? Did she say something?

Good effort from the caps tonight, but Tville were just too good. Gemma Potter with a break our game showing just how good she will be. Also have to wonder whether Jade could have got her second career triple double (9 8 6) in only three quarters od basketball.

For Townsville, positive signs with Alice Kunek warming up tonight.

No arm wrestling for Alice for a while though, I'd imagine. But great to hear she's getting closer to a return, the champs need her.

The Spirit have turned things completely around. I'm not sure coach Lucas would be pleased with some of his teams performances or their consistency. But it's always great to see Jordin Canada's elite court vision on display. The most surprising remark of the night came from Mark Alabakov, when he confidently declared that Sara Blicavs is one of the worlds great defenders. I can't see it myself.

Agree re Blicavs. I can't really see how she's in the Opals squad but Nicholson isn't.

Talbot is absolute quality, looks like she hasn't been away at all.

Whoever said on this group that Alabakov is one of the worst commentators because it is like he is coaching out there..... well I couldn't agree more. He may be a terrific coach, I am not sure, but that amount of time he says 'case in point' is terrible. Its like he is trying to prove to people who just want to watch the game that everything he is saying is right.

Was switching between NBL and WNBL games last weekend. Huge difference in commentary style. NBL commentators are "trying" to entertain. WNBL colour commentators all sound like they're interviewing for a coaching job. So much technical jargon has got to be turning casual basketball fans off.
