Severn Stars director of netball Anita Navin believes head coach Moonia Gerrard has the perfect skills to establish one of Superleagues newest franchises. The Stars joined the Scottish Sirens and Wasps Netball in being given a licence for a new and expanded 10-team Superleague for next season.Having been given the green light for 2017 it is now all systems go for the Stars, starting with the appointment of Gerrard. The former Australian Diamonds star, who twice won the World Cup with her country, is moving to England with her partner, Australian rugby star Dave Dennis, who is joining Exeter Chiefs, and Navin revealed they moved swiftly to land their target.It has been a bit of a mad month or so trying to get everything organised but in the main we wanted to get a coach who would make a difference and that was a great relief, Navin told Sky Sports.We found out, almost by chance, that she was due to come over with her partner after he secured a contract with Exeter. So we were fortunate that were moving to the South West and we moved in quickly. Gerrard takes Stars role Australian confirmed for head coach role Gerrard made her name as a defender of great skill during her playing days and as well at those qualities, it is her ability to work and bring through younger players that appealed to the Stars as they seek to establish and build a team from scratch.She is a real winner and in terms of coaching experience already she has been supporting other coaches and working in the Victoria State League supporting the individual player development and she is keep to move talent through, added Navin.Speaking to Lisa Alexander [Australia Diamonds coach], she said she has a real passion and has a real creative mindset that she brings to coaching.As a player she was one of the most outstanding defenders around and I think she will bring that defensive mindset to the franchise. You can win games not by just [having] creative players but [with] strong defensive pressure throughout the court.She will bring a tactical mindset and give the squad a structure with a really user-friendly approach - we are looking forward to getting her on board. Trio joined expanded Superleague Sirens, Stars and Wasps join for 2017 Navin also revealed that discussions are underway in terms of adding to the netball staff and there is a balance to be struck, with the plan to bring in established names who can play their part off the court as well as on it.Ive been acting as director of netball but we are looking to appoint someone in from the netball fray and an individual that can add more value, she added.The franchise is about getting hold of people in netball but moving them on in their careers as well.So the next step is Mick [Donovan, University of Worcester] and myself as initial leads in this franchise to step back a bit and bring in individuals who are younger and are actually running the franchise.[Having] Moonia with the team is exciting and we have a couple of discussions going on at the moment with some key players in terms of their playing ability but equally to do some management as a job in terms of the franchise as well.

But amidst the celebrations, its important the Whitecaps return to winning ways in Major League Soccer against an Earthquakes team that is below them in the Western Conference standings. The Form: Its now four matches without a victory for the Whitecaps who are yet to win against a Western Conference opponent this season, but they have tied their last two games against two of the top teams in Major League Soccer. In Utah last Saturday, the Whitecaps started terribly, going two goals down inside the first nine minutes against Real Salt Lake, but the second half was much improved, and a late comeback ensured the Whitecaps left Rio Tinto Stadium with a point. The Big Question: Will either of the Uruguayans be given the chance to start? Nicolas Mezquida and Sebastian Fernandez made an impact coming off the bench at Real Salt Lake a week ago, both scoring a goal, including a fantastic strike from Fernandez in the final minute of stoppage time to tie the match. Prior to the game, Carl Robinson said last week that the Uruguayan duo had been performing very well in training and wear very close to getting a start in the team. Mezquida has appeared in four matches this season, all as a substitute, while Fernandez started the season but then was left on the bench after a couple of less effective performances. With a Canadian Championship semifinal against Toronto FC coming up on Wednesday, its likely Mezquida and Fernandez will start at least one of the two games. "Everyone will get their chance," said Robinson after training on Thursday. "As a player, all you want is the chance to play and show what you can do, and most of the players will get that chance." The Lineup: Chilean midfielder Pedro Morales missed the trip to Real Salt. Lake to try and heal a back problem that has plagued him in the opening weeks of the season, but if he has fully recovered, he is likely to return to the Whitecaps lineup. Once again, there is a big decision for Carl Robinson in the centre of defence. Last week, Jay DeMerit staayed at home as Honduran international Johnny Leveron partnered Andy OBrien at the back.dddddddddddd Robinson must decide whether to stick with that pairing and bring some consistency to the back line, or bring DeMerit back into the eleven. Nigel Reo-Coker played the first three matches of the season but hasnt played since due to injury, coachs decision and most recently illness. Its doubtful that Reo-Coker will be considered for the starting lineup but he could return on the bench. The Opposition: San Jose Earthquakes started the season with a five match winless run, but that came to an end last weekend when they won 1-0 at home to Chivas USA. The Quakes are yet to win away from home this season, losing 1-0 at Kansas City and tying 0-0 at Colorado. Yannick Djalo scored the only goal of the game against Chivas. The 27-year-old from Portugal is still adapting in his first few weeks in Major League Soccer as he gets fully fit, but he is a quality addition for the Quakes this season, joining on loan from Benfica. 2012 MLS MVP Chris Wondolowski has scored three goals in six matches so far this season as he looks to win a place in Jurgen Klinsmanns United States squad for this summers World Cup in Brazil. The 31-year-old has an excellent goal scoring record against the Whitecaps. On a day where there will be plenty of focus on the soccer history of Vancouver, it is fitting that there is a heavy Vancouver presence amongst the Earthquakes coaching staff. Head Coach Mark Watson played for Whitecaps in 1994 and 2005 while assistant coach Nick Dasovic previously played for the 86ers and was a player coach with Caps from 2002 to 2005. Both men are from Vancouver. The Odds: The Earthquakes are yet to win in Vancouver against the Whitecaps in Major League Soccer and the Caps must be favourites heading in. Carl Robinsons team are four points ahead of the Quakes in the standings but have played two games more. The Whitecaps continue to develop under Robinson, but they must start to put together 90 minute performances if they are to get back to winning ways. Where To Watch: Whitecaps against San Jose is live on TSN2 on Saturday. Were on air with a special Whitecaps 40th anniversary pre-match show at 6:30pm et/3:30pm pt. ' ' '
