Leaving the team


Netball Australia’s boss Kelly Ryan has thrown in the towel after a bruising and long-running pay dispute with the players’ union. Ryan took the job in mid-2021, and it’s been a rollercoaster – controversies aplenty and the loss of $18 million in government funding happened on her watch. Stacey West, Netball Australia’s executive general manager for performance, has been handed the acting CEO baton. “The sport has a lot going for it. Yes, we’ve come out of a difficult period, but all parties are working to move forward,” said NA Chair Wendy Archer. And in a bit of a trend, the NRL’s Wests Tigers has also seen a major shake-up – yesterday, the board was dismissed, with chief executive Justin Pascoe also resigning. Former NSW Premier/Tigers tragic Barry O’Farrell will become the interim chairman.
