    Just having a look back at the Silver Ferns NWC team from 2015 and I was amazed at how many players are returning. When you consider all the turmoil and upheaval over the past couple of years, it’s amazing to see how stable this team looks. If you didn’t know how far they’d fallen, you’d think it had all been smooth sailing. It looks like they’ve just had one change of coach and a handful of new players have been brought in to take over from retirees.

    BROWN, Jodi
    CULLEN, Kayla
    DE BRUIN, Leana
    FRANCOIS, Shannon
    GRANT, Katrina
    KARAKA, Phoenix
    KOPUA, Casey (captain)
    LANGMAN, Laura
    MES, Bailey

    PASEKA, Malia
    RASMUSSEN, Grace
    TUTAIA, Maria
    Coach: Wai Taumaunu

    And to think that that 5 new players are aged 26, 27, 27, 28 and 29 certainly shows coach NT went with experience.

    Malia Paseka is a blast from the past.

    12 players have debuted for NZ since then but haven’t made this squad:

    Mikaere
    Purvi
    Jury

    Poi
    Pedersen
    Toeava
    Sokolich-Beatson
    Kersten
    Souness
    Sinclair

    Dunn
    Wilson

    A lot of middies. Two GS. No GA.

    Called in to replace Maria in some series in 2016 or 2017, but never actually got court time.
