‘It doesn’t make sense’: Aotearoa Men’s netball team denied six travel exemptions for Silver Ferns seriesenozlasParticipantOctober 9, 2021 at 6:53 amPost count: 402
As someone in AUS who has spent most of the last 18 months locked out of my home state and away from my partner and family, I am actually in support of an exemption system and understand it’s necessity until we are all protected enough.
However the inconsistencies that both the AUS and NZ governments continue to display when it comes to who gets granted and who doesn’t is just beyond ridiculous now.
I really feel for the Mens team and Kruze made a very good point that exemptions were granted for the SF when Auckland was in level 4 yet now that it’s been downgraded and the exemption being applied for are on essentially the same grounds it’s been denied??BallerParticipantOctober 10, 2021 at 9:12 amPost count: 408
We’ve confirmed our 12 for tonight’s opening match of the Cadbury Netball Series against Aotearoa Men in Wellington. Midcourter Sam Winders will not take part in the match as she continues rehab on a lower back strain, while shooter Tiana Metuarau continues her return to play strategy following an adductor strain.

The playing 12 will be confirmed on game day throughout the series, as selected from the series wider playing group.JRParticipantOctober 10, 2021 at 9:22 amPost count: 1180
So excited this is going ahead and that we can watch it here in Oz…thanks Netball NZ.
Only disappointed so many of the mens’ team won’t be there.HBHPParticipantOctober 10, 2021 at 10:35 amPost count: 84
I’m really hoping to see Heffernan and Hume get their first caps tonight!schmeetleParticipantOctober 10, 2021 at 12:12 pmPost count: 187
But will any games against the men be counted as “caps” as the games are not internationals?KerrynParticipantOctober 10, 2021 at 12:18 pmPost count: 173
there weren’t last time, Grace played in the Cadbury series last year for the ferns but her first cap was against England in this latest seriesIan HarkinModeratorOctober 10, 2021 at 1:54 pmPost count: 12946
Yeah, they’re games for NZ, but they’re not test caps.mcleodParticipantOctober 10, 2021 at 2:50 pmPost count: 1231
3 WA’s and 2 WD sort of C’s for the Ferns. Such a strange selection, doubt Toeava will get a go again.KerrynParticipantOctober 10, 2021 at 3:10 pmPost count: 173
Heffernan has been playing all year at C and is solid – but still lots to learn
Saunders decent C but I think she’s probably the best WA
Gordon – I think the further up she plays the less dirty she is (I think she’s a very destructive WD)
Kersten – a distant 4th behind the above 3 to play C (just in my opinion) but I would also rate her behind Gordon, Heffernan and Burger at WD (just from those in the team tonight)KerrynParticipantOctober 10, 2021 at 3:18 pmPost count: 173
