Basketball experts have praised the Opals during the World Cup, not just for the results, but for reclaiming their respected culture and bringing back the credibility that had long been part of our national team. And the Flyers ‘new recruit’ Lauren Jackson has played a major role in this.

Basketball legend Michele Timms credits the return of Australia’s greatest player for helping the Opals back to credibility. Citing Jackson’s selflessness that has had a flow on effect on the entire team.

“Lauren has also been outstanding on the court, and she is happier to do whatever it takes,” Timms said following Australia’s victory over Japan to clinch top spot in their group.

While Cheryl and the two players have been busy with the Opals, it has been training as usual for the rest of the Flyers team as they prepare for the opening round on Saturday November 5.
