Netball needs to learn from female basketball

Shouldn't these ladies have a vertical leap?
The average female college basketballer has
a vertical leap of 19 inches. the leading
womans basketballer has a vertical leap
of 34 inches.

It would seem the ability to jump would be
required for Netballers, there have been
woman basketballers that have dunk during
a game, four at college level and three in the
WNBA, and a ton in practice, surly there has
to be netballers that can jump up to block a shot
without having to be lifted up.

If this footage of netball was shown overseas, it
would make netball the laughing stock of womans sport
around the globe.
