This week my reading group. We wrote why Casey Kopua should play or not play next weekend.
What is your opinion of Casey potentially playing this weekend?
Sarah- I think……..because
Liske- I think that she personally should play a half a game because they will need to see if she is ready for the world cup and also if she plays this weekend and doesn't injure they will have a great % at winning the game she has great defence and sticks to her player like glue. Also this the right time to injure it if anything happens. She goes to the gym 8 hours everyday, or maybe more. She goes to the physiol each day, she says there is crying, bad language and a lot of other stuff, she also says it is worth it because it it working and helping.
Ruby- I think that she should play because she is a great player and we need to know if she can play. And if she didn't we will have to find someone else to replace her for the world cup. I think she can play only a little bit of the game. She has been working very hard because she goes to the physiol and gym 8 hours a day! We need to know if she is able to play for the world cup 2015. Even though she had to wait 9 months or a year I think she will still be able to play netball.
Georgia-I think that she shouldn't play this week because she might hurt it again and it might take even longer to get healed. The game coming up would be perfect for Casey because she has a bit longer to let her knee heal and if she hurts her leg only minor she has a week to repair. I think that she needs to play sometime but maybe not this week because she could not be prepared to play at her best against a very good team. Everyday she has been going to the physiol and to the gym so that she could get ready for the ANZ Netball champs.
Sophia- I think that Casey should play because she is a good player and the captain of her team. They need to know if she is ready for the world cup. She can also play a little bit of the game. The Magic have a good advantage of winning but they need to beat the Mystics so they are at the top of the board for New Zealand. She said “ I am going to try and land on the left leg” But she might hurt that leg too. She also said “I don't want to go back on court being a one legged netball-er.” Casey has also being going to the physiol plus the gym for 8 hours each day. Hopefully she can play in the ANZ champs.
Kellyanne-I think that she should play because they need to know if she will be better to play and if she is not that she may not be able to play for a long time and I hope she can play because she is the best player and captain.There should be a limit of how long she plays for.She really needs to do netball to get ready for the world cup otherwise she will not be as good as she normally is.
Shannon - I think Casey should play because I personally think she is the best silver fern player, Even if she plays half time she would still get lots of goals for the team. If she plays she might be able to compete in the Netball World Cup 2015 and that would be awesome because she would have a chance of her team winning. They need to decide if she can play or not so they can see if she can play for the world cup or if she can’t play they would need to figure out if they need another captain for their team. Before her injury Casey put in the hours and time to practice for all her games and after her accident she still tries to practice for netball with physiol and fitness, My opinion is that she deserves to play Netball in the World Cup.
Victoria- I think that she should and shouldn't play. She should play because she is a AWESOME player. She would really improve her team. And if she would like a spot in the Silver Ferns she would probably need to play a game in the ANZ netball camps. I also think she should not play because there is a really good chance of breaking her knee again. She also might not be able to jump properly that means she won't play well. She has been trying to get her leg right for heaps and has been doing it for 8 hours or more a day. That is why I think she should play and she shouldn't play this weekend.
Bella-I think that she should play because she is a good player and would stop the ammonites from getting a goal. She is a really good player so she would really help. We could put her on but not for the hole game. If she gets another injured she will know what she is up for. She will help the team while she is in and do her best to help.
