    Re babies. It’s 2022 so no way would Commonwealth Games organizers get away with not being receptive to needs of a young Mum with a baby. There will be an allowance for mothers not to stay in village. Dame Val Adams stopped staying in the villages for most of her career. I would think it’s up to country concerned to work through all that is needed. Otherwise it’s very discriminatory. Re Ekenasio – I believe her 1st baby was born just before the last Comm Games as well and think she had less time after his birth. This time she has 9 months so I have confidence she will be 100% fit. She is 1 very determined athlete.

    Thanks for that info re SSN. Wonder how many NZ netball fans will subscribe to another service just to watch OZ league. Not me. Happy to just watch NZ netball on Sky NZ.

    I was thinking that maybe because how new sports complex is delayed due to lockdown. The Metro centre (now called Parakiore) is a replacement post earthquakes for part of QE and includes 9 netball courts with 2500 seat arena. ? that might become home of Tactix

    In the Newstalk ZB interview she was asked which of all the rumours was true she said some of all of them. Seemed to pick her words. A few years ago she was not getting much court time and spoke up about it. Was that after her return from baby leave? I felt from the interview she wasn’t confident she would b given the chance to puck up where she was when she comes back from birth of 2nd baby. Now that Tiana is coming back to Pulse and is in SF squad their would b 2 Ferns in the Pulse who will be vying for the same position . She definitely had to move it seems.

    Ekenasio interviewed on newstalk nz sport tonight. She said she is focused on getting back on court asap and needs court time to be back in ferns. To do this she needs supportive environment as mother of 2 with 1 a newborn. Said a lot of changes at Pulse and she didn’t want to b left high and dry so went looking for the right team for her at this time of her career. She is not sure on living arrangements yet, may do a bit of commuting but also mentioned hoping to live at the Mount. A lot to b resolved yet but she is happy to go to Magic. Seems very determined to get court time so she is fit for big 2 years ahead.
