Dakic 07
Taylor 07
Metcalfe 06
Another guard but can't tell from pics.

Dart, Puoch and Akot you would think should be in camp.

So far from the best available.
Doubling up on somfai, Russell, crook and dakic? Prior to u17 WC.

Injured. As are a number of those named in the team.

Why wouldn't they double up and pick Hall, who is far superior to Dakic? CoE athlete over non CoE athlete?

100% Dakic was pretty poor at Nationals too

Not a bad squad, no guarantee we medal.

Harvey - Bond
Deas - Bobongie - Dakic
Shiels - Russell
Somfai - Fuller - Bird
Williams - Crook

Those at Coe definitely got the nod over those outside, for sure...

Hall obviously missing
06s that could have filled in perhaps for those WC players.
Dart g/f - playing well in nbl1 north
Akot pf - has improved quite alot in the last year n a half
Clarke pf/c - mia but good player
Puoch c - holding her own in nbl1 south
Waite c - solid in nbl1 west
