NZ have Taurus and Fuller and bring in the ANZ coaches as part of their development for the future, hence the rotation Fuller is sometimes unavailable. They’ll also bring in specialists in certain areas of the court, if required / just like other countries.

I wonder if DNT resume is too good, that it’s made/making it hard for NNZ to find someone else or even wanting to move on from her?
I don’t think it’s a good enough reason to keep her on, if she’s not producing results. But let’s face it, there’s no one in NZ that has a resume that comes even close to hers.
IMO YMD would be my next pick. And I’d offer Rob Wright the assistant role.
I think I’m in the minority here, I don’t mind watching the ANZP. Yes, I do agree that 3 rounds is too much. I thought the competition this season was quite competitive. Steel had a hard season, but I think they’ll be right up there when Fisher comes back in.

They invite the ANZP coaches to SF trainings/matches to ensure that the coaching messaging is clear throughout the different franchises and so the ANZP coaches are clear on the SF directivesMaryannParticipantOctober 23, 2023 at 3:55 pmPost count: 1222
https://www.nzherald.co.nz/sport/revealed-how-next-silver-ferns-coach-will-be-found/CDLVOAJ4ZNGAZAHU75Q76H7OBM/ This is behind a paywall but talks about how all ANZ coaches have been involved with some form of International Competition in the last four years.al_exParticipantOctober 23, 2023 at 10:31 pmPost count: 1198
Nweke would have sponsors in NZL even if she played SSN. SSN teams can also organise sponsorships and third party agreements for her in Australia. Those differences are negligible.
In ANZP she can earn 55k AUD, in SSN she would get more than 200k if she went to a team without other stars. That difference is enormous for a 21 year old (or anyone really).TBParticipantOctober 24, 2023 at 1:35 pmPost count: 1073
But it’s the same thing for the All Blacks, they could make more money playing overseas. But they’re strict on their rulings for eligibility. Yes I understand the All Blacks would be on much money than netballers, but I do understand from a sponsors view they wouldn’t want their stars playing overseas.
I am surprised that Ekenasio (who I think has earned the right to) hasn’t made a move to SSN. I can’t remember where I heard it, but I’m pretty sure she mentioned it somewhere how she’d like to play there?
DNT answered this question on Inside Netball quite well. She said they are open to discussions with players about it. But players need to earn that right, and she referred to Langman and Folau. She spoke about sponsors too, and keep them happy. She also highlighted that Aus have no contracts atm. Her words “we need to be real about that”. In NZ all players have contracts.mcleodParticipantOctober 24, 2023 at 4:00 pmPost count: 1711
I am sure Grace would rather be playing for the Silver Ferns, than a SSN team.
Plus I’m sure she is well looked after money wise from Mystics, Silver Ferns, outside sponsors.al_exParticipantOctober 25, 2023 at 7:30 pmPost count: 1198
Top All Blacks earn $1 million a year, it’s a ludicrous comparison.
If Nweke goes to SSN and New Zealand wants to be a Top 3 nation, NNZL will give her an exemption. She is worth more to the Ferns than visa versa. She’s the most valuable asset the Ferns have had since Van Dyk.TBParticipantOctober 25, 2023 at 9:00 pmPost count: 1073
Definitely a ludicrous comparison. But the point was lower paid AB players (or even fringe players) could score big dollars playing overseas. Probably potentially earn more than the top AB players.
Now if those players were able to play overseas and also be eligible for ABs, would sponsors support or be happy with that?Ian HarkinModeratorNovember 3, 2023 at 9:31 amPost count: 20976
