Sue Gaudion and Keeley Devery are confident that changes to this year’s Suncorp Super Netball will be match winners. They expect the proposals will add value to the league, making for a more exciting viewing experience for fans and fresh faces alike.
Netball is currently the fourth most played sport in Australia behind soccer, golf and AFL – it is the most dominant female code by some margin. However, that position has come under threat recently with increased pay deals and a wave of success drawing numbers to code competitors AFLW, soccer, cricket and rugby sevens. The game’s very existence depends on netball’s ability to stay ahead of the pack.
