I think netball or cricket are our biggest chances. I was lucky enough to be court side when England won a match against Oz in the quad series. Play like that and we can really win it.

Lovely girl though.

We start our netball World Cup tomorrow against a very good Malawi outfit. England should beat Uganda and Australia start their campaign against a Northern Ireland and will hammer them.

I can’t see anything but an Aussie World Cup winner.

You may be right, they are a force to be reckoned with. Although our Oz based players and gone advantage might help.

Showing of, the missus get an instant message from Helen Housby yesterday. The most excited I've seen her. Which is a worry

Comfortable win for the Ferns. This Aussie v NI game is so one sided. NI haven’t registered a score yet in second half.

Btw I know this isn't everyone cup of tea, but the one advantage of netball is it's brevity. The entire world cup is 9 days long.

England roses with 64-32. Easy enough especially as Uganda played with a woman less for the last quarter.

Technically for SOME of the last quarter. She came back on for a few minutes form her caution before being sent off.

I agree it was easy. I'm also very worried. When Harten dropped back to GA it took a long time before her and Dunn started clicking. Which is odd given their collective levels of experience. Housby/Harten IS defo a better looking partnership up front, in every respect of the word!

I also get the feeling that Guthrie was taken off to be merciful given what has happening with their centres!

Good win for the Ferns today but equally good wins for the Roses against Barbados and Australia too. South Africa currently winning comfortably too so everyth No running g true to form for the world’s top 4 (Jamaica will argue that they are one of the best and they are winning easily too. )

Yeah Jamaica are doing well they could conceivably give SA a run for their noney.
Still think Oz are amazing. They didn't have it all their own way against Zim today but, missing only one shot out of 40 in the entire first half was impressive.

Wow that's pretty cool! She played will yesterday I thought, given everyone was being swapped around so much. She can't sort me out final tickets can she [:D]

In all seriousness it's about to get, erm, serious now. The big four (it was always going to be the quad series teams in the semi wasn't it?) play each other today, pretty much to decide who plays who in the semis.

I've watched a few matches and they've all been massively one-sided. The gulf between the top 4 teams and the rest seems massive. No wonder it's only on for 9 days. They are struggling for any decent teams to take part.

My wife's parents have been to quite a few of the days and have enjoyed it though. Should be more interesting the next couple of days with the decent teams playing each other. Australia look comfortably better than everyone else from what I've seen.

There were tickets going today for £10.

Top 5, to be fair. It's doing a disserivce to Jamaica to say they are among the rest, were it not for the quad series and the Caribbeans failing to get regular games against top ranked opposition they'd be up there with the best.

I agree though it's a narrow field of competitive teams. Moreso than some established sports though. The Rugby League world cup for example. The final was almost certainly going to be Australia V England. At least with this opne it could be any of the big 4. Although I also agree that Australia look FAR better than the rest at this stage, their shooting accuracy is brutal, the key to beating them would be having a decent centre and WD pairing to stop the Shooter getting the ball in the first place. Hard work that.

Looking forward to today's matches. Should be a good indicator of the semi finals.

At the arena. My Mother in law was at the match yesterday afternoon and bought it for £10 for this morning's session. Didn't ask too many details so I don't know if it was the box office or the fan park or a randomer.
