    Well that’s kind of my point, I don’t think it is worth it.

    NNZ wants to use elite competition to build pathways. NA wants to build the profile of netball as a sport and increase professionalism, sacrificing pathways and traditional rules in favour of commercial viability. They are completely different objectives, so it doesn’t make sense for NA to accept NNZ under those conditions or for NNZ to join the SSN in its current form. The only way around it that I can see is if Sky comes with a lot of money for three NZL teams, but that seems unlikely.
