    Both Northern Stars Round 4 matches have been postponed under the league’s Covid-19 Match Postponement Policy. The requested postponement means both Saturday’s Stars v Tactix and Monday’s Stars v Steel games will be rescheduled. New dates for both fixtures will be confirmed in the coming weeks.
    Remaining Round 4 fixtures (all matches live on Sky Sport):
    Saturday 2 April
    4.10pm, Mystics v Steel
    Sunday 3 April
    12pm, Men’s Invitational Match – Mystics v Stars
    2.10pm, Mystics v Tactix
    4.10pm, Magic v Pulse

    oh dear!
    Given Steel played Stars on Sunday we possibly might see a cancellation there as well.

    Let’s just hope it trickles through the teams now rather during the latter part of the season.

    Genuinely curious – are rules around isolation/travel/close contacts etc in NZ so much stricter than AUS?
    So many games seem affected by covid and it’s only round 4.
    SSN will no doubt be impacted but it seems to be wiping whole teams out in the ANZ champs and only a few players/coaches here and there in SSN. Albeit it’s only round 1.
    Just curious?

    @enozlas – heres a link (had it at hand with my SIL testing positive today) if you are really interested but I believe that in Australia you need to live with someone to be a close contact. Here the category is slightly wider than that. https://www.health.govt.nz/covid-19-novel-coronavirus/covid-19-health-advice-public/covid-19-information-household-and-close-contacts?fbclid=IwAR3x4yl_xo__T04l1xkoBzOX8lIDqFu0mHh2Q78iZhZ174S2rjvipv9T1t8#:~:text=What%20does%20it%20mean%20if%20I%20am%20a%20Close%20Contact,using%20a%20Rapid%20Antigen%20Test
    The other thing is that our first omicron peak with both BA.1, BA.2 and to a much smaller extent Delta is moving through the country currently unlike over there, where the second wave BA.2 is at play.
    It is not uncommon here (and probably in some SSN teams) that the players live together so in that situation if one tests positive then the other/s become close contacts and need to isolate.
    I hope that helps.

    Thanks @Maryann ☺️ Makes a lot of sense.
    Yeah over here it’s basically living with someone or spending more than 4 consecutive hours in close proximity with them which is not very common if you don’t live with someone.
    And very good point regarding the wave. Hope things settle down over there soon for you all!

    There’s virtually no netball games in NZ this weekend 😕!!
    I wasn’t going to subscribe to sparksport to watch the SSN but I think I will or else I won’t get my netball fix this weekend!! Will just cancel it at the end of the season. Has anybody else subscribed to sparksport to watch the netball? I’d be interested in any feedback on the service. (I saw there is a free 7 day trial) TIA.

    @Kwkwiwi – we get Sparksport. All good excepting the screen goes black with a few words to basically say we will be back shortly each time adverts in Australia come on (end of quarters etc) – but you can get the lead up to the game and after game breakdown. When it flicks back over to live feed it sometimes misses a few of the commentators words. The screening of the games is just fine.
