How good is this!
Announcement at the end of the week. SSN here we come!mcleodParticipantMay 25, 2020 at 4:34 pmPost count: 114
Will it be a full comp 18 weeks including finals, or a watered down comp. The boss of the SSN previously said they are looking at a November finish, but hoping not to go into December.
If such a late finish, that rules out any international Netball. Oh well apparently the SSN is the greatest Netball comp in the world, so that get to have the final say!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Ian HarkinModeratorMay 25, 2020 at 6:15 pmPost count: 2344
They’ve said before that the Constellation Cup might be different this year, but they’re still hopeful of playing it. It’s such a money spinner, maybe they’re trying to delay it as long as possible so they can get crowds in.mcleodParticipantMay 29, 2020 at 2:29 pmPost count: 114
Anything new to report?. Or will Sunday 31st May be the official announcement day.Ian HarkinModeratorMay 29, 2020 at 3:35 pmPost count: 2344
Nothing so far. They did say “the end of the week”, so not sure if that’s today or what. Originally said they’d decide by the 31st, so I guess we’ll just have to wait.JRParticipantMay 30, 2020 at 7:56 amPost count: 131
Swifts, Giants stars slam NSW government on community netball inaction
Swifts captain Maddy Proud and coach Briony Akle, their Giants counterparts Jo Harten and Julie Fitzgerald and Diamonds captain Caitlin Bassett raise concerns over a “major lack of guidance” as to when netball clubs will be able to return.
Proud said – “It’s scary to think some young kids might go a year without sport, that could change the course of their lives,” she said. “If they stop now, they might not ever want to play again.”
