Magic coach Noeline Taurua has also retained eight players from last year’s ANZ Championship squad, and her team remains New Zealand’s starriest line-up in 2009, with seven current Silver Ferns squad members.

Once again the side is anchored at either end by two of the world’s best players: 36-year-old shooter Irene van Dyk and 23-year-old goal keeper Casey Williams.

The top-class defensive trio of Williams, Joline Henry and Jodi Tod is further stiffened by the addition of 33-cap Silver Fern Leana de Bruin, who played for Northern Mystics in 2008. In the mid-court the gifted, gritty Laura Langman is joined by Frances Solia whose toughness and experience were major assets for Central Pulse last year.

The Silver Ferns representation is completed by silky shooter Maria Tutaia whose assurance in the goal attack position grew during the 2008 international series against England and Australia.

The team’s fresh faces are twenty-one year-old shooter Jess Tuki, from Southern Steel and Otago, and 19-year-old Elias Shadrock, captain of last year’s successful New Zealand Secondary Schools team.  

Capable of the league’s best play in every third of the court, Magic’s challenge in 2009 is to sustain that quality through four quarters. If they can do that, their fans will have an exhilarating ride to another Grand Final.
