It seems that NZ players are more likely to change franchises more than Aus players.
Is it a culture thing or players moving to play with certain players. ie Gina moving to play and feed Maia each week. Or just opportunities to step on court.NateParticipantJune 5, 2022 at 9:43 pmPost count: 297minkieParticipantJune 5, 2022 at 9:52 pmPost count: 303
Abit of what Nesian said and Nate
The NZ players seem to have decided to take unexpected changes/risks, which is great. But maybe also it means some clubs aren’t looking after there players as much?
It truly is a meat market thou and maybe with larger player numbers in Aus or Eng, the players there aren’t willing to risk moves?

I’ve got a feeling Dunn is off to the Tactix… and Ekenasio back to the Pulse
Just my thoughts, I know nothing!Netballfan1ParticipantJune 6, 2022 at 8:55 amPost count: 155
I doubt burger will be back at the atqcrix unless Watson returns, and there’s a change to their attacking line up.minkieParticipantJune 6, 2022 at 9:34 amPost count: 303
Dasies, hope you’re wrong with the Pulse one and be amazing with the TactixmcleodParticipantJune 6, 2022 at 10:27 amPost count: 1425
I’m pretty sure Jane will be back at tactix, something exciting will happen in 2 attacking areas I think.WeWoodParticipantJune 6, 2022 at 11:01 amPost count: 495
Things will kick off in the contracting space immediately after the final I guess??
One thing I wanted to ask is around when players move teams. If not on a multi year contract are players effectively unemployed from a week or two after the final? How does that work?MaryannParticipantJune 6, 2022 at 12:41 pmPost count: 854
@WeWood, I’m no where the knowledge base of McLeod and Nesian but from what I see, the players who are moving on seem to align with their old franchise until the next pre-season begins and do promotional work so they must remain contracted in some way. Remember though that a lot of ANZ players hold down part time jobs ie. Kersten (teacher) for example.
I’ve always wondered how it works in Australia.

The ANZ players don’t earn what SSN players do, netball NZ don’t have a big budget to splash out,but neither did/does netball Australia. So a number of them have jobs, go to uni etc. Hence the reason some of them move to a new area.NesianParticipantJune 6, 2022 at 3:13 pmPost count: 253
@HBHP Burger is very happy at the Tactix with or without Watson there. I don’t see her leaving anytime soon.
@WeWood Contracts are usually around seven months long so they’ll start around Dec and then they finish two weeks after the grand final. This is when the players usually give their cars back. They have the choice of being paid all their salary within that seven month period or they can opt for it to be spread out over 12 months.
Contracting has already started.Franchises can negotiate with their current contracted players but they can’t approach other franchises players. Players can however initiate contact with other franchises at any time. Do franchises adhere to the rules? I’m not sure but I know of at least one that doesn’t.
