    Yes, but unfortunately we have come out on the short side, being 0 for 2.
    Oh well, at least we beat them for the title in the Netball World Cup a couple of months ago.

    England were awesome Conor. IMO, it was their speed that killed us. And the Screenonline massively flattered the All Blacks.

    As much as I follow international sport, I know nothing about Netball. Could not even tell you how its played. One of the few sports that I can say that about.

    I taught netball once at a girl's school in Kent....it's like basketball, except the players each have an assigned area to be in on the court....only two players on each side can score and there is no dribbling....

    I don't think the Netball WC was televised in the US. I was aware of its existence only because there was an extensive coverage on BBC World News. If you are interested, you can see some highlights on Youtube. (Or even the whole championships game for that matter.)

    Congratulations to South Africa.

    Disappointed that some England players refused to wear their silver medals.

    IMO, they were disrespectful to the Boks. They were disrespectful to the Japanese.

    True character is how you handle yourself in adversity. Sadly England failed the character test
