N. Holloway (vice captain) is a top player and is fit and agile and feeds her forwards well.
R. McGill-Brown is an excellent rebounder and is attending her second tournament.
A. Coulson is a good goal scorer and has previously played for Hutt Valley and represented North Island.
M. Noble is strong on attack and scores well under the goal. Feeds her forwards well.
W. Rabbit new to representative basketball and capable of scoring goals. Can be erratic at times.
