New Zealand 74 England 30

This was the score last night when the Silver Ferns took on England. The game? Netball, of course. Here in New Zealand it’s way up there in the public limelight …. amazing really for a women's game. The match was shown on prime time TV …. that’s how much interest it attracts! The only game that overshadows netball in New Zealand is rugby. I must admit it would be difficult to outshine the All Blacks.

Call me weird if you must but I love it. The women are just so elegant to watch. Points are scored in rapid succession, very little time is wasted with throw ins, scrums and there's no rolling around in the mud and grunting. Netball ... you can't beat it!

See what I mean? Reading your blog is like entering bizarro-world. Where everything's the same but ever so slightly different.

Netball? I'm amazed.

Come to think of it, this probably explains why New Zealand doesn't much feature in the football World Cup. You may have a more attractive alternative to the beautiful game...

Played it as child...good for the long-legged: not the short. (Me.) Wouldn't have ever called it elegant but then this is New Zealand. (Isn't it?) In a country with coffee lounges, netball has to be far out...
