    I, for one, are happy enough in her reappointment. I would like to see a different Assistant Coach put in place to support her with new ideas and also a commitment to attend all events with the Silver Ferns, not just some.
    While this may seem harsh – the time has come for SF trialists and squad members to step and ensure that they meet the required fitness standards before they attend the final selection process, instead of wasting everyones time by being sub par. They are professionals and need to remember that. I also believe that if a player makes themselves available for the SF Ferns squad or extended squads that pulling out for reasons than illness/injury should not be allowed. Same reason, these are professional players, this is their occupation. Expecting players to be available to tour then finding out they have requested an exemption does nothing to assist the rest of the team. It is a team sport and all planning is done with this expectation.
