Sam Wallace is returning for the Swifts in 2018 in Super Netball.
UGANDA has made the cut for its first Commonwealth Games but one of netball’s most flamboyant teams – and one of Super Netball’s most popular sharp shooters – will be absent.
The Ugandan netball team are the big movers in world netball, jumping into the top 10 with their win at the recent African Championships.
This confirmed their debut at the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast.

As a result, head-turning shooter Sam Wallace will not be playing at the Games.
A star for the NSW Swifts in the inaugural season of Super Netball in 2017, Wallace was also a scene-stealer and one of the most popular imports in the game.
The 23-year-old is the first player from Trinidad and Tobago to join Super Netball and has signed on for 2018.
Joining defending Commonwealth Games champions Australia on the Gold Coast are, in order of their world rankings, New Zealand, England, Jamaica, South Africa, Malawi, Fiji, Wales, Uganda, Northern Ireland, Barbados and Scotland.
Preliminary matches will be played at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre from April 5-12 with finals matches at the Coomera Indoor Sports Centre from April 14-15.
