    Junior Levi 2.18m  What a joke if Watson or Karaka are up against him.

    Most of the mens players minus a select few that are all incredibly tall, athletic and skilled can’t defend him either. I’m really hoping the the conversations they had about how the games would be played are followed. It’s very easy to agree to play in a traditional manner where they work the ball to the circle edge, but in a game it will surely be hard not to just throw a mid-court lob.

    I like the idea of the game itself, but there’s really not much point in the SF’s defenders even playing against him.

    Yeah, everybody’s saying how great it is. I’m sorry, I just don’t see it. I just don’t think it’s going to prove anything.

    For sure, showcase the men… playing against other men. Have an Aust v NZ men’s series on as a curtain raiser or something. And have them playing against the Silver Ferns behind closed doors as they usually do.

    Agree, it could well do more harm than good.  Playing All Stars (NZ A) is great, that’s a strong team, Fiji is also a good build up.  I won’t even watch them play the Men, waste of time.

    Apologies if this has been mentioned somewhere but do we all know Reinga Bloxham is coaching the All Stars team?

    This will be good practice for Ferns leading into Worlds. I expect the Men to win every game well.

    Most likely. For me the games are about cementing combinations, especially against A team and Fiji. Against the men, it is about performing under pressure.

    Two games of netball and then some cricket… I have missed my midweek netball.
