    The Queensland Firebirds have admitted they misread community expectations by not playing the league's only indigenous player in Super Netball's Indigenous round

    The Queensland Firebirds have admitted they misread community expectations by not playing the league's only indigenous player in Super Netball's Indigenous round

    Jemma Mi Mi was not given any game time in the Firebirds' match against Melbourne Vixens on Sunday.

    The club was lashed on social media for not playing midcourter Mi Mi, who has been with the club since 2017.

    Firebirds coach Roselee Jencke says player performance and the team's determination to bank another win after finishing last in 2019 was behind her decision, which resulted in an upset victory over the minor premiers.

    But the coach admitted the player's failure to appear was not in line with expectations after using Mi Mi to promote the round.
