Firebirds skipper Gabi Simpson won the coveted Liz Ellis Diamond which is awarded for the most outstanding performance by an Australian player across the international and domestic stages. Sunshine Coast captain Geva Mentor was also in the spotlight after winning the Suncorp Super Netball Player of the Year gong after leading the Lightning to victory in the inaugural grand final last weekend.
Netball Australia will on Monday announce that the 2018 season will not begin until after the Commonwealth Games in late April. The governing body canvassed the possibility of starting the season in February — like this year — and taking a break during the Games. But with so many international stars from the Super Netball competition set to play in one of the marquee events on the Gold Coast, Netball Australia opted to sit tight.
On Sunday, she was crediting the Lightning’s guardian angels in defence for helping her achieve the only thing missing from her stellar career — a premiership. Bassett hit 49 goals from 51 attempts in the Sunshine Coast’s 65-48 thumping of GWS to complete a brilliant season for the world’s best goalshooter. She said it would not have been possible without the Lightning’s defensive end of captain Geva Mentor, MVP winner Karla Mostert and relentless wing defence Laura Langman.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
