Calls for revamp of national netball competition

From Morning Report, 7:49 am on 29 September 2023

Calls are mounting for New Zealand's national netball competition to be revamped if the Silver Ferns' are to snap out of their slump in form.

Last month the Silver Ferns missed the podium at a World Cup for the first time and they followed that with a humbling loss to a virtual England B team last week.

The New Zealand side at least bounced back from that defeat with a big win in the second test.

Coach Dame Noeline Taurua is adamant our top players need more exposure to Australian teams if they're to be a consistent test force again.

The third and final test against England is in Hamilton on Saturday night.

Netball New Zealand head of high performance Stephen Hotter spoke to Corin Dann.
