I don’t understand why the SSN has such a long pre season. They were back in training in November last year, for a comp that starts in May. That to me is seriously stupid. Feb should be the earliest that they are contracted from. Not 7 months before the 1st game.
I can see player burn out being a big issue again this year. The world’s greatest comp will finish, then the Diamonds will be straight into international Netball, Quad series then Con Cup.
That will finish late Oct, then the SSN be back into 7 month pre season.
