THERE'S a wonderful "circle of life" moment today in Lauren Jackson's decision to return to the WNBL with Southside Flyers. When her mother Maree Jackson (nee Bennie) plied her trade in Melbourne, it was at the same destination - except at that time, Southside was still the Dandenong Rangers.

WNBL in off-season overdrive, new owners, coaches

In: WNBL — Friday, 13 May, 2022

THE futures of multiple championship winners Adelaide Lightning and Bendigo Spirit appear assured with new ownerships at both clubs, several coaching changes afoot, but the downer of the off-season being the WNBL losing several marquee players ahead of the 2022-23 campaign.
