Four teams’ seasons are officially over, while the Melbourne Vixens, Sunshine Coast Lightning, West Coast Fever and NSW Swifts have their sights firmly set on the first week on finals. Along with the excitement of finals, a handful of players have also announced their retirement, including Caitlin Thwaites and Tegan Philip of the Vixens and Jacqui Russell of the Lightning. All three, however, have a finals series to play before ultimately bowing out of the game to which they each contributed a huge amount.
