I’ve noticed many of our top ladies teams are not playing much internationally example the Perth Masters. To me, the more they play the other world teams the better.

After the score of 4 in the third end, Team Homan put on a clinic. Well done.

Very very well done. I'm glad they are the front runners for the Roar. Hope they make it. I'm sure it will be a different outcome this time. Congrats Team Homan. And, good luck team Fleury in your upcoming events.

Other than Raytch blowing her relatively easy deuce in the opening end - that was as clinical and dominant a display I might ever have seen Team Homan put on - and they did it against a very good, in fact excellent Canadian team. Team Fleury was no patsy - in fact going into this game it could be said they were the #1 Canadian team.

Ice isnt consistent

Sometimes cuts , sometimes doesnt

Hard on good curlers playing precision shots

Team Homan thoroughly deserve the Trials spot, that final was jaw droppingly? good from them.
Seems like Epping is going to Saskatoon as well, will he do better than 2-6 like he did in 2017? With this team, I think so.

Was rooting for Koe, but glad they made it to the finals nonetheless.

You must be joking - the Perth Masters is an event for men only.
Perhaps you are thinking of the Perth International Ladies which has a 1st prize of 4,000 euros?

i have to admit im curious as to why the canadian teams have chosen to stop going overseas to compete. i mean..they go to the asian events but you hardly ever see canadian teams in the big european events anymore. basel, baden and perth always used to attract a big canadian name or 2 . gushue in particular used to travel a lot.

the oslo cup, when it was running was a popular stop for canadians. its to bad that event is no longer around.

I recall reading one of Eve Muirhead's articles from several months ago where she was bemoaning the loss of some of the European events she used to play in every year. There's been a decline in European investment in curling, it seems, at the same time that it's been picking up in Asia and in the USA.

Years ago there weren't as many spiels in Canada as there are now. Now there's sometimes 5-6 every week. Much cheaper for the Canadian teams to stay in Canada than to fly to Basel. And, with the teams chasing the points to get into the top 15 or so to get the slam invites, it would take much less time and money to stay in Canada competing for more points weekly. That's why we see so many Euro teams coming to Canada for 2-3 or more weeks at a time. Cheaper to come here for an extended stay, than only play there every 3rd or 4th week there.

Still, having said that, I think it would be great experience for the Canadians to play even once a year in Europe.

Checked out the draw schedule for the Perth Masters and it appears that two of Canada's top curling teams will participate in January, 2020.

Team McEwen is probably there because of their need for something called "points". At the same time it will give them a perfect opportunity to escape the extreme January temperatures in "The Peg" which at times can be colder than those in Nunavet. To them, Perth will seem like a southern vacation!

The other team, Gushue & Co, seems to be a regular in Perth and since they are certainly not there for points, I'm guessing it can only be for the haggis.

Tried it once. M'mm Good? Definitely not!

Caught the replay of the final game between Team Fleury, currently # 1 on the World Curling Tour, and Homan & Co. ranked 9th prior to this event.

Certainly was an intriguing match up between the best "draw artist" in Canada and Homan who owns a a "takeout weapon" no former woman curling champion has ever possessed.

A curler like Homan, and the team she has assembled, come along once in a lifetime; difficult to accept that they are only now approaching their prime.

But unfortunately the team may have had their once in a lifetime opportunity to win an Olympic medal.

Raytch & Co. now have their auto-berth in the Cdn. Olympic trials.

They'll be the odds-on, if not overwhelming favorites.

The gutsy, but obviously declining Jennifer Jones will be a minor player, should she even qualify - at this point I'd put her chances at around 65%.

After Jones the biggest challenges will come from: Casey Schiedegger, Chelsea Carey, Kerri Einarson, Tracy Fleury, Krista McCarville - perhaps a couple or 3 teams we haven't even heard about yet.

None can match up with Team Homan - in the key stat - shot-pelting!

Across the board, Team Homan usually overwhelms opponents with consistency, accuracy and very consistent, yet fairly conservative strategy. Get a lead and hold it - refuse to concede anything more than singles.

If Scheidegger can torque it up a couple notches she'll represent the most viable threat to rep Canada.

Yet, with all her successes in Canada - a win at the STOH this year will put Rachel at 4 titles, 2 short of Jones, and Jones didn't win her first until she was the same age as Rachel is now - 30/31.

Biggest problem after Canada = 2 words, Hasselborg, Switzerland.

Hasselborg is the only one who can match and often exceed Rachel in all aspects of the game. Switzerland is most like a younger version of JJ Jones - a last rock-thrower who misses the odd shot during early to mid-ends but closes hard and isn't afraid to attempt and make extremely difficult shots.

Let's hope not. I want and wish for them the experience of winning gold at the Olympics. I believe they were completely heart-broken and disappointed with the thought they may have let their fans and Canada down at the last Olympic games. They'll always have my support. I wish them well.
