    Really silly format this year. The Super Netball MVP… why was that not announced in grand final week and even at the GF???

    And because they had that award tonight, they got rid of the Australian Super Netball player of the year. That would have been between Watson & Tippett and we never got to find out who it was! It just all seemed really strange and rushed. The whole thing was over in less than an hour I think.

    How the heck did Anstiss get WD of the year?? Brazil far and away won that, and i would even say Simpson and Lee-Price played better and more consistently that Anstiss.
    Also agree that Taurua was the better coach for the year, although she did have 3 weeks off for family so if it came down to that, i can understand. But I didnt think Stacey M was that great off a coach this year, they had a good starting team, but the game day ‘coaching decisions’ rarely worked as far as i can remember. They are the two i cant agree with, and it might seem im just hating on Fever, but i just cant see what either of them did to deserve it. I dont believe a coaching award should be given to a coach wholey based on the success of their team, but on the success of their tactical decisions in when t/o’s are called and what substitutions are made.

    But if they had the ‘Australian Super Netball Player’ of the year award it makes it sound like that ‘Super Netball Player’ of the year is an award only for the imports. To me it makes sense to combine it into one award. Although, some type of leaderboard would have been nice so that we could actually see who the top performing Australian was.

    But what I’m talking about is they shouldn’t have the SSN MVP tonight. They should announce it in grand final week and present it at the GF. Then tonight they have a separate award just for the best Australian player in the SSN. They could well end up being the same player, but that’s the way it goes.

    And yes I agree. No matter what method they use, just give us a leaderboard please!

    Haven’t seen any shots of her, and I’m pretty sure Fowler wasn’t there. Why would she be? It’s the Australian netball awards. Hence why I can’t work out why they announced her award tonight and not GF week when they could have presented it to her.

    Completely agree. SSN player of the year / League MVP in GF week or after GF. Then an Australian SSN player of the year at the Netball Australia Awards.

    Anstiss wasn’t there. A Diamonds squad member, WYC player and whether you agree or not WD of the year. Yet stacey Francis was there? I know there is a lot of love for the imports on here but this was the Netball Australia Awards and should be the night of nights for Australia’s best to celebrate.

    Poor planning perhaps, but Jess is on holiday in NZ.

    While I agree there could be some awards presented during/at the immediate completion of the SSN, each team would be allocated a certain amount of tickets and I guess it comes down to who is available aside from actual capped Diamonds. As far as SSN goes, the imports have contributed to the success of SSN and Netball Australia as a whole in the past two seasons and should have the opportunity to celebrate as much as any other player.
