New silver ferns squad named
Silver Ferns coach Dame Noeline Taurua says kotahitanga is the teams greatest asset heading into this month’s Taini Jamison Trophy against Jamaica.
Dame Taurua has named her squad ahead of the match up, with Ameliaranne Ekenasio taking the captaincy despite not playing for 18-months after having her second pēpi last year.
She says netball is a team effort and victory hinges on individuals coming together as a collective.
“If anything we love each other too much and we haven’t got that ruthless side but I think that something that makes this team special and the wairua and everything about it is true, it’s pono, authentic, and that’s how we roll,” Dame Noeline says.
