    I think the Jamaican’s massive improvement over the last few years shows what SSN can do for player development, even more so when you get to play in your international combos every week (eg Janelle/shanice, shamera/latty, potentially Eleanor/sasha next season). But as has been pointed out SSN would probably only want the 2 world class players NZ have (agree that was a stupid thing for the coach to say publicly), so that doesn’t really help lift the overall standard of the team. It’ll be great for those 2 players but we’ve seen what happens when you hang the hopes of the team on one person and they get injured. I like the idea of fielding one or two NZ teams in the SSN but don’t know commercially if that’d work for Netball Australia and it’s a long way off. Plus would that essentially mean NZ’s national team would be playing together every week in the SSN? That doesn’t seem fair.
