Given Steel played Stars on Sunday we possibly might see a cancellation there as well.BallerParticipantMarch 30, 2022 at 4:26 pmPost count: 466
Let’s just hope it trickles through the teams now rather during the latter part of the season.enozlasParticipantMarch 30, 2022 at 4:55 pmPost count: 430
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?MaryannParticipantMarch 30, 2022 at 5:19 pmPost count: 806
@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.Ian HarkinModeratorMarch 30, 2022 at 6:54 pmPost count: 13957

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!KwkiwiParticipantApril 2, 2022 at 6:49 amPost count: 115
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.MaryannParticipantApril 2, 2022 at 7:31 amPost count: 806
@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.Ian HarkinModeratorApril 2, 2022 at 9:39 amPost count: 13957Ian HarkinModeratorApril 2, 2022 at 10:25 amPost count: 13957
