NBL players allowed in

The NBL has cleared the hurdle for getting overseas imports into the country.

A Newshub report last night said the league has been given approval to bring in overseas players for this year’s league.

They have been judged as critical workers by the Government and will be able to link with their teams. About 20 players and two coaches had applied to enter the country.

The Nuggets have signed American Isaiah Moss and Australian big man Geremy McKay and will be glad to have received approval to get the players into the country.

The Highlanders are also planning on getting Japanese loose forward Kazuki Himeno into New Zealand, and he is scheduled to land in the country and then enter quarantine.

The Nuggets will now look to finalise travel arrangements for the overseas duo and make sure they are well ensconced in the camp before the start of the season.

The Nuggets season starts on April 24 against the Saints at the Edgar Centre.
