      “I just want the media to call us a sport and not a ‘women’s sport’. There are more people playing netball in this country than AFL or rugby league or union– I mean what else do we have to do to be taken seriously? I never called AFL or NRL ‘men’s footy’ despite the fact those codes were closed off to women for the last century. We have one of the biggest grassroots bases of any sport and are truly national with huge numbers in every state. Yet still we are treated as a poor relation. If we don’t call this out more regularly nothing will ever change.”
