England’s Netball Captain , the team currently playing in the Netball World Cup in Liverpool and 2/1 second favourites to win it. Currently they have won both of their games in the initial Group Stage.
TV coverage split between BBC & Sky with the final a week today Sunday 21st July.
At last year’s SPOTY the Netball Team Won Team of the Year after winning gold at the Commonwealth Games ....unlikely therefore to be awarded that title again this year.
More significantly that Commonwealth victory was voted for by the public as the Greatest Sporting Moment of 2018 , beating other contenders from the world of Cricket,Football,Golf and Boxing.In other words Netball has a very recent “formline” for attracting votes.
They will need to win the World Cup of course and by no means certain that Serena (the stand out player, Captain and figurehead of the team) would be nominated even if so , but everything has its price so Thankyou to whoever layed the 1000 .
Current price 180 - 490.
In just over a week’s time she will either be Sub 50 or 1000 depending on whether England win the World Cup or not . Given they have a 33% chance of success , that looks a risk worth taking.
