Broughton Looks Forward to Pre-Season ‘Summer Shootout’

Broughton Looks Forward to Pre-Season ‘Summer Shootout’


Haier Pulse Head Coach Robyn Broughton is looking forward to this weekend’s official ANZ Championship pre-season ‘Summer Shootout’ tournament in Melbourne.

“It gives us an opportunity to see every team in action. All ten teams going so that’s good for all of us. We will play all the Australian teams so we get a go against all the players and that in itself is worth the trip,” said Broughton.

“It gives us another chance to do combinations, because we’ve got no more games after this weekend until we start the ANZ Championship. It can be pretty hard because you go off the boil, so you’ve got to really make the most of what you get and then we’ll have to work hard to keep up the momentum when we get back.

“It’s been quite hard during pre-season, but having the Magic games soon after the Silver Ferns returned from the UK was good. We now have this weekend’s tournament, so we’ve got to make the most of the chances we get out on the court.

“There is certainly plenty of healthy competition in the team and I would feel very comfortable using the bench. We’ve got to find our best combinations: that’s across defence, middies and the shooters.

“Everybody is doing their very best and we do want to raise the bar this year, and we’re working hard both on and off the court to do it.

The official pre-season tournament kicks off on Saturday. For more information on the ‘Summer Shootout’ check out http://www.anz-championship.com/Matches/Pre-Season.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
