Covering all the NETBALL QUAD SERIES and CONSTELLATION CUP action for Nine’s Wide World of Sports, the expert commentary team will include Australian netball legends Liz Ellis, Laura Geitz, Cath Cox and Sue Gaudion, and host Clint Stanaway.
On the court the brightest stars will include Caitlin Bassett, Madi Robinson and Kim Ravillion representing Australia, Maria Tutaia leading the charge for New Zealand, along with England’s Super Netball stars Jo Harten and Geva Mentor, and South Africa’s Karla Mostert.
Nine’s Head of Netball, Keeley Devery, said: “International netball is coming to Nine and what better way to do it than the Quad series and Constellation Cup, where viewers will be treated to the best players in the world. The stars of the recent Suncorp Super Netball series will now step it up in their national teams and we can’t wait to showcase these amazing athletes on Nine.”
Former Australian captain and Nine netball commentator, Liz Ellis, said: “Four of the best teams in the world will square off in a host of international grudge matches. The Aussies love nothing more than beating New Zealand and they will have the chance to do it both home and away.
“The Quad Series and Constellation Cup will feature a real mate-versus-mate vibe when the stars of Super Netball get the chance to settle old scores. Plenty of pride is on the line and some tough netball is going to be played. I’m excited to see it all coming to life on Nine.”
