NETBALL SCOOP WORLD’S BEST NETBALLER 2020

It has been a very different year in sport. Netball has certainly been adversely affected by COVID-19, with some competitions cancelled, some postponed, and all compromised in some way. But thanks to the tireless efforts of those involved, both the Suncorp Super Netball and ANZ Premiership seasons were able to be completed, along with a

NS SCOREBOARD – Nov 3, 2020

Since the last edition of the NS SCOREBOARD, we've seen three competitions decided. South Africa's Telkom Netball League came to its conclusion with Gauteng Jaguars incredibly taking out their fourth straight title.

NS SCOREBOARD – Oct 21, 2020

Since the last edition of the NS SCOREBOARD, we've seen the final two matches of the 2020 Suncorp Super Netball competition play out.

NS EXCLUSIVE: 2020 Netball Scoop MVP Awards

It's been a crazy year in Suncorp Super Netball. A year of hubs, midweek games, and rule changes such as rolling subs and Super Shots. The introduction of the Super Shot was supposedly going to stem the dominance of the tall holding shooter. Well, that may have been the thinking. But it certainly didn't turn

NS SCOREBOARD – SEP 12, 2020

Excitement and controversies galore in Super Netball, and yesterday, we saw the culmination of the ANZ Premiership season for 2020. A season that was anything but straightforward, ended with a straightforward result, as Central Pulse took out their second ANZ
