Coach Robyn Broughton has recruited shrewdly during the off-season, snaffling Silver Ferns defender Sheryl Scanlan (from Northern Mystics) and NSW Swifts shooter Leah Shoard. Steel also welcome the return of two outstanding former Silver Ferns Adine Wilson and Donna Wilkins, who both took time out in 2008 to give birth in 2008. (Wilkins was Steel’s assistant coach last year.)

The addition of current young Silver Ferns Wendy Telfer, Liana Barrett-Chase, Katrina Grant and Daneka Wipiiti gives Steel 2009 a total of seven players who have already stepped up at senior international level. Silver Ferns squad member Erika Burgess cannot be far away from her test debut, while shooter Julianna Naoupu and defender Te Huinga Reo Selby-Rickit are set to build on the promise they showed last season. 

When the going gets tough, the tough get…very steely, and the team has made its intentions visible with a fresh uniform featuring steel grey. The fans are ready to rock Stadium Southland, which will be the venue for four games in 2009, including what could be a competition highlight: against the 2008 champions NSW Swifts on 4 July.
