Long earmarked for a bright future, fleet-footed midcourter Whitney Souness will make her Netball World Cup debut in South Africa, in 2023.
Two sparkling domestic seasons in 2022 and 2023 have proved defining for Souness following her selection in the Silver Ferns 2022 Commonwealth Games and 2023 World Cup teams after a previously chequered career at international level.
A player of real quality and with growing confidence in leading an attack line, Souness has worked tirelessly to add consistency to her special skillset and was at her mercurial best in helping the Pulse to the ANZ Premiership Finals Series in 2022 and 2023.
The ever-present Souness has a strong repertoire. Speed off the mark, insightful feeding skills, change of direction off either foot, ability to off-load in the air and disruptive defensive work highlight Souness’ abundant talent pool.
Making her debut in 2017, Souness has added consistency to her electric game which has continued to mature with age and experience. A key cog at domestic level, Souness has all the attributes to push on and now make her mark on the international stage.
A former NZ Secondary Schools player, Souness was also part of the World Series-winning FAST5 Ferns team of 2018.
