    Im guessing that means Joyce Mvula is off elsewhere, maybe SSN or ANZP.

    And what will the Severn Stars line up look like?!

    Severn Stars should never have been given a Superleague place : I suspect lots of internal shenanigans involving Anita Navin (netball pundit/ commentator/ England Netball board member etc etc), took place.  I know it sounds spiteful but I hope that they go downhill and lose their franchise place, thus opening up the door for Yorkshire (England’s largest county) team to return to Superleague. There are far too many teams concentrated in the Southern area and it would be nice to have more equal representation…

    Thunder developed both Malcolm and Cardwell so deserve their return (both played better in that environment in my opinion)

    Sounds to me like the money is running dry in Worcestershire!!

    England Bostd minutes note that one club breached the players wage cap last season. Perhaps it was Stars and so they’ve had to release some of the higher paid stars in order to keep the internationals?

    I just assumed Joyce was going home, I’m pretty sure she has a young family. Can’t players only play for so many years due to Visa issues?

    Yes it would make sense that Joyce was leaving (and yes, there are likely VISA restraints) but that seems like something Thunder would want to say officially and thank her for her services etc?!

    Perhaps KTurner is thinking of starting to step away? Or one of the youngsters on the bench is off to Uni elsewhere in the country?

    Perhaps if she was off to ANZP or SSN they couldn’t announce her departure until the new team announce they’ve signed her? She’s a great player though, so I hope shes going to keep playing in one of the elite leagues, and with Kwmwenda out with an ACL this is her international season to shine.
