How are the Melbourne teams going to be able to play in NSW in Round 3? I thought everyone was going to be in QLD.Ian HarkinModeratorJuly 24, 2020 at 10:28 amPost count: 18803
First takeaways from the draw…
WOW that sure is condensed.
An extra FTA game on weekends including Sat double headers. But almost all midweek games only on the app.
Swifts and Giants play their first 3 games in the first 2 rounds, then get round 3 off as they head to Qld.Ian HarkinModeratorJuly 24, 2020 at 10:30 amPost count: 18803
JR, the Melb teams aren’t in NSW in round 3. They’re in Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast.Netballcrazy1ParticipantJuly 24, 2020 at 10:38 amPost count: 2266
I’m surprised Thunderbirds don’t have any home games considering Adelaide is one of the more eased restriction statesNettySuperFanParticipantJuly 24, 2020 at 10:44 amPost count: 265
Thunderbirds say they have 2 home games locked in for the next phase of the fixture, all things going well. I assume the latter half of the season have a number of games played in SA and WA, if they both have Covid19 still under control.Ian HarkinModeratorJuly 24, 2020 at 10:44 amPost count: 18803
A good chance that will happen later in the comp. Same for Perth.JRParticipantJuly 24, 2020 at 11:10 amPost count: 1675
Thanks for clarifying; obviously have to get my head around the names of the stadiums (having the name of the place as well as the Stadium on the Fixture would help!).Ian HarkinModeratorJuly 24, 2020 at 11:20 amPost count: 18803
Nissan Arena = Brisbane
USC Stadium = Sunshine Coast
Ken Rosewall Arena = SydneyDexiNBLParticipantJuly 24, 2020 at 3:42 pmPost count: 13
Exciting! Absolute dream run for the Queensland teams, though that was to be expected. Wouldn’t be surprised to see Lightning pretty much sow up a finals spot in this block of fixtures, they’re going around with the same successful group of players and every game bar the first is at USC.Ian HarkinModeratorJuly 24, 2020 at 4:43 pmPost count: 18803

Condensed Super Netball draw raises fear of injury and burnout

Given the condensed nature of the draw, I agree that increasing playing rosters to 12 makes sense for this season.
