    Stumbled across the Inside Netball podcast chat between Adine Wilson and Deb Fuller from a week ago.

    Wilson, I assume she has background about the Ferns programme but was asking questions on behalf of the viewer about what makes up the fitness testing – bronco, yoyo and vertical jump. Sounds like it’s a cumulative ‘score’ if you will, but the yoyo holds the most weight re your aerobic fitness and capacity.

    Fuller said three girls are hitting 20+ in the yo-yo with one of them a ‘part time Silver Fern’.

    Wilson was really pressing on the standards and Fuller was short and to the point, essentially saying if you want to be in the Ferns you will make it happen, prepare adequately and be ready to put your best foot forward.

    Sometimes it can be difficult to follow Taurua in interviews, but certainly from Fuller it was crystal clear that fitness and then fit (team and cultural fit) were critical in moulding the 12.

    I think we might have a team of liquorice allsorts at this stage ?
