Live on BBC Two at the moment, the final of the very global netball World Cup :) Australia against New Zealand (for the 658th time). 

 

It's pretty close, but also pretty weird: half the points are made when the opposing team just does nothing and the player with the ball just stands there for a few seconds and shoots without any opposition :lol: Like sort of a friendly form of basketball where the goal is for everyone to score a point :d

There is no contact allowed what so ever, so they can’t do much. I think it also has something to do with the assigned positions in the sport.

Well it’s a women’s sport that originated in the British Empire, what did you expect?
