    Just read this, two torn ligaments, so thats a no to the rest of the season. More scans this week to see any higher up damage, wouldnt be surprised if there isnt tbh.

    Weird reading she knew she would either land out of court or on Llyods feet and choose to land in court on llyods feet? Id have gone out of court instead of damaging yourself.

    I reckon they wished Cat Tuivaiti was in the country. She would have been a good replacement player.

    As silly as it was to put Karaka into the shooting circle, she didn’t look out of place there. I do think if they were to start her there, she could possibly build a good connection with the attacking end, and also build herself into the game.

    I was also surprised they didn’t bring Carys Stythe on at GD, when they moved Karaka 🤷‍♂️

    honestly that is just dumb – who on earth would take an injury over an out of court (when chances are they would turn it back over anyway) having done an ankle at netball in the same way (though it was purely intentional as viewed by nearly everyone else on court and on the sideline) in 2006 and it never quite coming right, and still recovering 15 months on from an ankle dislocation and 3 fractures (non netball related, just my clumsy a** falling down some concrete steps while carry a box – first moving box of the day!!) and having two surgeries and still having major issues – I re iterate to consciously make that choice is just DUMB!!!!!! :negative: :negative:

    and I totally agree @TB aslong as it isn’t Karaka/Stythe/Fitzpatrick that have just tested positive for covid – then I think that would actually be their smartest move – gives them a target and to someone who seems relatively comfortable to put the ball up!!

    @Kerryn all three you have named have already had covid this year. The only one that is out of the three months (generally don’t catch it again) is Fitzpatrick but I guess it could be a different strain.

    Sorry Maryann
    Know we’re in a different country but ppls here are getting reinfected after 3 weeks, forget 3 mths. And yes they tested neg after 8 days after being positive the first time. Second covid was a dozzie too.

    @Minkie – happy to stand corrected. An example here is that they don’t consider it necessary to test those who have had it prior for three months on building sites where weekly/twice weekly testing is mandated.

    Ministry of health advice in NZ is that after you have it you don’t need to test for three months afterwards. Fragments of the virus may show in RAT tests for up to a month after. I know places of work that test everyday regardless if you have had it or not and as long as you are past a two week threshold after infection you are basically good to go whether you test positive or not because you aren’t contagious.

    If Nweke has a torn ligament I’m doubtful she will be there for the finals let alone the Comm Games. I can see a fitness exemption being made for her if she is named in the squad.

    No to Karaka in GS. People seem to think that shooting is quite easy when in reality it’s the hardest job on the court. Just because you played GS in your high school netball team doesn’t mean you are good enough for the ANZ. The current ANZ shooters have put tens of thousands of shots up to get where they currently are. If Vui and Faulkner aren’t up to it put on Namana, she’s a high percentage shooter that presents well.

    Personally I think Nweke should be aiming for SF training camp. This particular season was always going to be won by the team with least disruptions.

    Crazy re not testing for 3 mths
    Work friend was positive 22nd Apirl (her husband whose a school teacher tested negative? We have to RAT test every day to get into work. But Saorin had to test every day for 8 straight before she was even allowed in the building (must be 8 consecutive negs)
    Last week Saorin tested positive, her husband got it this time.
    Any close contact you should be testing, assuming a game of netball a close contact.

    Park up and get fully 100% injury free. No use forcing the ankle to come right.

    Wilson on the news tonight
    I can’t confirm which areas of the court it is in (it being covid)
    Rules state that you can request a postponement based on x number of cases
    We haven’t done that yet

    My thoughts are that it is the middies

    I thought Wilson sounded slightly stressed on one news. However she is right, there are still enough top players to get them through.

    @Baller – more stressed than I have ever heard her.
