Netball: Silver Ferns series against Jamaica in doubt again as travel disruptions continue to plague Sunshine Girls

The Taini Jamison series between the Silver Ferns and Jamaica has been plunged into serious doubt - again.

After Netball New Zealand was told Jamaica's visa issues had been resolved, and about half the touring party arrived in Auckland on Monday, everything appeared back on track for the rescheduled tests to go ahead on Wednesday and Thursday, but a development late has thrown the series into chaos again.

Seven of the 12-strong squad have touched down in Aotearoa, with the remaining five expected to arrive on Tuesday.

However, Netball NZ has confirmed to Newshub those five players are not on their way to New Zealand, with no indication if or when their visa issues in the US will be resolved.

Jamaica coach Connie Francis hopes those five players can travel to New Zealand via Germany or Singapore, instead of the US, but time is running out, with the first test scheduled for Wednesday.

Hope is not lost for the series, with Netball NZ also prepared to lend Jamaica players from within New Zealand, although Jamaica have not agreed to that proposition yet.

Last week, the series was cut from three tests to two and relocated entirely to Auckland, when the Sunshine Girls were left unable to travel to New Zealand, after not receiving their visas back from Washington.
