You have to ask, when did we get so slack on fitness that the head coach had to impose fitness standards?

The thought of “is a SF fit enough to be qualified to play” would have never entered my mind. I started getting into netball in the late 90s, and have followed all the way through. I don’t ever remember questioning any player on their fitness.

I mean Vili Davu dropped so much weight when she was in her prime. And IVD spoke a lot about fitness programs etc. I always thought it was just expected that you were to be super fit/strong 🤷‍♂️

If DNT thinks we have a fitness problem (imposing standards IMO is saying we have a problem) – then I’m going to believe her!
