Taini Jamison Trophy 2023 Preview: Series

INTERNATIONAL netball is back this weekend, as New Zealand and England battle it out for the Taini Jamison Trophy.

This series has been much talked about in the build up, for both good and bad reasons, but at the end of the day there is still a three match series to be won, and it is a big series for both teams.

For New Zealand, it is a chance to take a bit of a reset. It is only a month after a World Cup that went far from to plan for the Kiwis, so now they are back at home, with a few new faces in their line up, and with the next major tournament perhaps not for another four years, it is the perfect chance to perhaps rejig a few of their systems.

For England meanwhile, it is all about the new faces. International experience is not exactly in ample supply in this Roses’ squad, but there are positives to be found in this situation.

Anyone who watched the Netball Super League this year knows how exciting the players in this squad can be, and with some of the most important players in the Roses getting towards the end of their careers, these players need the opportunity on the world stage so when those key players retire, those coming through have the experience to help ensure England do not drop off the pace.

The 2023 Taini Jamison Trophy begins on Sunday in Christchurch, before heading to Porirua and ending in Hamilton. International fans can watch via NetballPass, while New Zealand and English fans can check their local guides for viewing options.
