Vanessa left a comment saying she didn't know what netball was so here are a few things to look at. Just keep in mind that netball is one of the most popular competitive sports in Australia and New Zealand. the rivalry between these two countries is HUGE and there is ebb and flow between who is the number 1 team etc.
First the rules - it is like basketball except for the running with the ball and the scoring - so nothing like it really. Better explanation here.
Hope that explains a few things but you might want to see it so go to this site on you tube to see an amazing game that I went to last year. The thing about international games is that Australian and New Zealand umpires are often not used and the umpiring has a few issues. This game showed it dramatically - the umpires lost complete control of the game by the end and it was awful to watch.
The other thing about netball is that there are many injuries related to knees and ankles. rough on the joints as you have to stop so much......
