Just as she did for the Netball World Cup in 2019 and Commonwealth Games in 2022, lofty shooter Te Paea Selby-Rickit has timed her run perfectly to earn her place in the Silver Ferns for a second World Cup campaign, in South Africa, 2023.
After missing out on several in between Silver Ferns selections, Selby-Rickit has shown the capability to bounce back in impressive style. Able to play both shooting roles with equal effect have enhanced Selby-Rickit’s credentials, her experience both domestically and internationally subsequently extending her repertoire and defining her play-making skills and decision-making.
After making her Silver Ferns debut in 2016, Selby-Rickit has become an influential leader in the Tactix attack line with her ability to direct play and set up the shooting circle.
Height, shooting nous and attacking smarts make Selby-Rickit a constant threat in the circle while her subtle court craft extends to clever off-loads and the ability to be a playmaker. She is also a confident and accurate mid-range shooting exponent. A strong mover while also having the ability to play a holding role make Selby-Rickit a dangerous shooting opponent.
