'We should let our players play in other associations' - Silver Ferns great Taini Jamison criticises Netball NZ

Silver Ferns legend Taini Jamison has criticised Netball New Zealand for dropping the ball after a failed Commonwealth Games campaign and for the direction that netball is heading in New Zealand.

If Netball New Zealand wants to close the gap between competing nations Jamison says they need to allow Kiwi players to play in overseas competitions.

"We should be able to let our players go and play in other associations and to come back and bring them back," said Jamison.

Had Netball New Zealand tweaked their eligibility rules Laura Langman would be able to play for the Silver Ferns.

Meanwhile teams such as Jamaica, Malawi and England benefit with their players given the nod to compete off shore.

"It's good for netball but not good for New Zealand and it wasn't good for us, we didn't let our players do the same thing.

"They (Netball NZ) need to get netball people in there choosing rather than other people from other associations choosing from other sports."

Jamison said Netball NZ's failed Commonwealth Games campaign was disappointing. Source: 1 NEWS
