    Damned if they do, Damned if they don’t @Museboy.

    The import rules were in part designed to stop clubs getting into a direct bidding war against either each other or SSN, encouraging local development over buying in talent.

    With the financial situation being what it is for NNZ, I think saving teams from themselves through controlling their costs may well have been a necessary evil. The alternative would have been the ANZ clubs stuck with either contracts they couldn’t honour once the SKY cut came, or at the very best a simultaneous mass player exodus as salaries got cut when the pay tv money ran out anyway.

    Netball Australia I doubt would have been anywhere near as prudent in the same situation.
