I noticed Parmy playing attack in Mavericks training videos this week, Nankivell in defence. Nankivell did play very well in WD in the Tbirds finals campaign last year.
That some players in NZ live away from their club teams and limit their training with them feels unusual to me. It wouldn’t happen in Australia. Like Romelda and Scherian have moved (at least temporarily) to Adelaide to train/play full time.
