Creative, reads the play well Making Australian team for the first time and winning three CBT titles Netball carnivals in Woy Woy and braiding everyone’s hair Trying to relax, have a sleep and then watch some video of the opposition Not everyone gets it easy, find a way to make your skills work. Always look for ways to keep improving 0 from 5 (attempts) in a quarter for the AIS It was a wrap-around yellow skirt (not pleated) and a white bonds t-shirt I have kept one uniform from each of the important teams and competitions. Eventually had to throw out most of the tracksuits as they were taking up too much room in my parents place! In Australia it was always the Thunderbirds, I guess they were the benchmark and it’s always good to know you can match it with them. In NZ it is the WBOP Magic, again, same reason Probably braiding hair, when I was a kid everyone did it, now it’s coming back into fashion. First game for Australia against South Africa in South Africa, Grand Final in National Bank Cup in NZ, First Grand Final for Swifts where we thrashed the Thunderbirds The players are fitter and more committed to training and having netball as a full-time occupation rather than a few times a week and games on the weekend. The game itself is faster and more physical and now as everyone is as fit as each other, the smartest players or the team that plays together often wins. One or 2 great players won’t win you games anymore… Player for Northern Mystics

No musical bones in my body!
