Players like Nweke, Earle and Gordon need to go through the U21 system just like Langman, Kopua and Folau did before them.
The current team stood out during the Super Club and all went to Sippy Downs for WC preparation. Excluding Poi but I imagine being in the Magpies camp has been comparable. Still crossing my fingers NT continues after the Nations Cup.
Sounds like the fitness standard has vastly improved across the board, which is good to hear. Overtime the young ones will benefit hugely and we will be reaping the rewards in years to come. As long as those fitness standards never drop, we should be producing some fierce athletes in netball.
I saw on the news NNZ received an injection of money as did the women’s cricketers. Amazing what winning a world championship will do. Also Silverferns won the Lonsdale Cup for best team. Such a good year for Netball in general.
