Anyone that knows katie and plays with her/against her has seen how good she is. She throws like a dude and she is fast (you wouldn't catch half the newcastle guys wanting to have a footrace with her with me at the top of that list). Problem is, most selectors won't have seen that, or don't see it at the try outs. So well done to them.

I don't know, its a big call but I reckon that the selectors are generally aware of relative abilities of the players...

Shall be interesting to see how the team performs. Can't wait to see the footage

Fuck off. She's throws like a woman who is awesome, which she is. You don't need to compare her to a man to justify that she's good. And if you respond with some patronising comment I will personally throttle you.

Looking at her style, it is something you see in common with the better male handlers.

Girls throw in their own kind of way, i'll put that down to being physically different.

However, you compare Katie Bradstock to Leanne King (Or many, many top flight female throwers) and there are subtle differences in weight displacement, throwing action and follow through that is just different. Not good, not bad. Just a style more common in males than females.

I'll point it out to you at league if you like.

I wasn't being patronising. Nor was I comparing her with guys to justify the fact that she is good.... Of that I can assure you. Katie has her own unique style. I was just pointing out some similarities.

Dan runs like a girl, so I think it's fine for him to use such a comparison.

No need to be self-conscious about it.
