I think the question should be more of, "what did NZ do to help Irene in Netball"? She came from a country very different from NZ and wanted a better life for her family. NZ Netball and her love for the game definitely helped her achieve what she wanted personally and as a career too. Her contributions to NZ Netball, and Netball as a whole has been great for the development of up and coming netballers and what the younger ones want to achieve. Remember that there are 7 players on the court and it takes a WHOLE team to achieve recognition and win or lose the game.
Current famous NZ Netball Players are: Casey Williams, Irene Van Dyk, Laura Langman and Maria Tuataia. NZ Netball greats, (in my opinion) are: Julie Seymour, Sandra Edge, Bernice Mene
