International Player Focus: Sarie Watkins (Wales)

IN the recent international test series, Uganda got the better of Wales in both games, but for the newly named Feathers, it was about preparing for the World Cup Qualifiers in just over a week’s time. Among a host of fresh or inexperienced faces was shooter Sarie Watkins who made her debut in the second […]

SSN Player Focus: Sasha Glasgow (West Coast Fever)

WEST Coast Fever star Sasha Glasgow is one of those players that often flies under the radar. While Jhaniele Fowler rightfully gets a lot of media attention for her height and the amount of volume she is able to shoot in a game, Glasgow is just as valuable to the Fever line up, doing a […]

SSN Player Focus: Liz Watson (Melbourne Vixens)

LIZ Watson is the kind of leader that leads with her actions more then her words. While her fellow co-captain Kate Moloney is the more vocal one in situations like time outs, Watson leads from the front with her actions and the way she plays. Not only is she is a great leader, but she […]

SSN Player Focus: Gretel Bueta (Queensland)

QUEENSLAND Firebirds star Gretel Bueta is a stalwart of the Suncorp Super Netball, having played in the league for a long time and become a first choice shooter for both the Firebirds and the Diamonds. This Player Focus takes a look specifically at her efforts in last weekend’s match against the Vixens, which although the […]

SSN Player Focus: Molly Jovic (Collingwood)

COLLINGWOOD secured an important win in the Suncorp Super Netball on the weekend against their crosstown rivals the Melbourne Vixens, and a big part in that success was midcourt star Molly Jovic.

SSN Player Focus: Maddy Proud (NSW Swifts)

AFTER missing out on selection in the initial squad for the Commonwealth Games, NSW Swifts’ Maddy Proud came out on the weekend and certainly showed the selectors why they had made a mistake in not selecting her. Despite her team going down to the Sunshine Coast Lightning last weekend, Proud had a game to remember. […]

SSN Player Focus: Shamera Sterling (Adelaide Thunderbirds)

IT has been a tough few rounds for the Adelaide Thunderbirds in the Suncorp Super Netball competition. Two one-goal losses then a 10-goal loss last weekend means they are in a bit of a form slump at the moment. But, one player who has really shone for the Thunderbirds not just in the last week […]

SSN Player Focus: Donnell Wallam (Queensland)

THE Queensland Firebirds lost their opening round match last weekend, but in the process debuted a shooter who even after only one game may already be one of the finds of the season. Fans got a glimpse of Donnell Wallam‘s talent at the Team Girls Cup, but her spot in the Firebirds squad was not […]

Reunited Roses Series: Eleanor Cardwell Player Focus

SHE might not have the Suncorp Super Netball (SSN) experience that her peers in England’s shooting circle do, but Eleanor Cardwell proved to be a match-winner for the Roses against Jamaica. After an impressive Cadbury Series in New Zealand, Cardwell was relegated to the bench upon the return of SSN stars Jo Harten and Helen […]
