What does WA and WD do in netball?

Basically Wing Attack marks the other teams Wing Defence and Vice verse for the Wing Defence. If you're wondering where they are allowed on the netball court, imagine you are the wing attack. You are allowed in the centre third (same applies for wing defence) and you're attacking third (the way you are shooting). If you are playing wing defence you are not allowed in the attacking third, so you are defending the other teams goal. (The wings aren't allowed in the semicircles either).
