FINAL STATS Yohan Traore - 20 pts, 8 rebs Johni Broome - 17 pts, 9 rebs Johnson - 13 pts, 3PT% Dylan Cardwell - 12 pts, 14 rebs, 3 blk #WarEagle.
Eleanor Cardwell is here practising her shooting almost an hour and a half before the match starts. No other players are out warming-up yet. #B2022 #B2022Netball.
I’m not sure if diamonds would have got over the line if roses had better sub choices. I guess we will never know. Housby Cardwell are scary good. #B2022Netball.
I happily praised Jess for changes etc in the last match but todays have been….is panic the right word? Cardwell and Housby got us here….why mess with it?.
I enjoyed the “Welcome to SSN” seminar Bruce gave Cardwell. #B2022Netball #ENGvAUS.
Eleanor Cardwell was made for SSN - she’s going to absolutely kill it down here #B2022Netball.
3/4T: 45-36 Why England waited until there was two minutes left in the third quarter to use the Cardwell and Housby combo is beyond me. Clearly a winner. From an Aussie POV, can I just say, thank god we have Steph Wood. She has been steady at this Games 👏 #B2022 #B2022Netball.
I love Cardwell by far the best option why wasn’t she with housby sooner? 😬 #B2022Netball.
These changes are crazy. Cardwell and housby are your best chance. Jo shouldn’t have even been on court. #B2022Netball.
Cardwell and Housby is a fire combo. It’s the SEMI FINAL, against the top team. WHAT IS GOING ON #B2022Netball.
@jeremypeterrich Totally agreed and so thankful for it. Not starting Cardwell was insane. Shes been rock solid and was my biggest concern going into tonights game and Alison not starting after her dominant performance against NZ. Some super odd decisions #B2022Netball.
@BLT_86 I think if Cardwell came on sooner it would have come down to a few goals in it. Truly would’ve made a big difference, the physicality she brought and constantly drew calls against your defenders - she just don’t have enough time to help them claw it back.
HOUSBY TO GA AND CARDWELL TO GS NOW PLEASE. AND GIVE EBONI A FEW MINUTES FFS #B2022netball.
Ellie Cardwell getting a taste of the Thunderbirds chaotic coaching methods before she heads their next year #B2022Netball.
@SachaShipway @JessThirlby But obviously no trouble with her selections? Everyone was shocked that Cardwell didn’t start! And taking Housby off?! She needs to own her mistakes..
@IzzyOrford I was worried about Harten starting over Cardwell, but tbh they were both brilliant and Houseby too. Problem wasn’t scoring, the problem was winning and holding the ball in mid court…. plus a fair few dubious calls 😞 …. Let’s regroup and get that 🥉.
@leeluvzya I don’t really agree - Stacey really backs her 7. That paid off today and almost paid off last game. Jess not starting Cardwell and then benching Housby made literally no sense.
I don’t think Cardwell starting was going to win them the game. England had no answers for the Aus attack end, Bueta in particular #B2022Netball.
Highlights of that match were Guscoth versus the post and Cardwell FINALLY coming on. Jamaica need to go out beat Australia to get that gold medal. #B2022Netball.
Cardwell and Housby should have been playing together from the start, insane choices #B2022Netball.
@jeremypeterrich Yeah Cardwell and Housby should have been our starting shooters, as soon as the gap appeared Jo should have been off Cardwell on. EUB should have also come on earlier. Malcs is too hesitant to feed as a C too..
Cardwell complaining, girlie you’re gonna be in SSN you’re gonna have to get used to this 😭 #B2022Netball.
If I was Bruce I would continue smiling and laughing at Cardwell, she’s making an embarrassment of herself. #B2022Netball.
A 9-goal deficit for England to clinch back in the final Q seems like a huge ask. England are finally getting into the swing of things with Cardwell/Housby shooting combo (which should have been on from the beginning). Harten is world class but injured. Confusing decisions #B2022.
Bibs in the air from Thirlby again! Surely Housby and Cardwell should be on together? #B2022Netball.
Helen was not the weak link in the Roses attack line - Joey is clearly injured and not looking confident to post 😢 JT give us some Cardwell/Housby magic #B2022Netball.
@leeluvzya @BLT_86 Taking Helen off for Cardwell was also a mistake. Jo should have gone (and I love Joey).
9 goals is nothing, England are still a good chance of winning especially with the Housby/Cardwell combo #B2022Netball.
@allyallyfay I just don’t understand Harten (GS) and Cardwell (GA) as a combination against Aus AT ALL.
