8 April 2014

With last night’s fantastic 56-53 victory over the Waikato-Bay of Plenty Magic still sinking in, the Haier Pulse has received yet another boost, with Liana Leota due to rejoin the team next week.

The 2010 ANZ Championship MVP travelled to the UK at the end of the 2013 Haier Pulse season, where her husband Johnny plays rugby for Sale Sharks, and remained there for the birth of their third child earlier this year.

Netball Central Zone and Haier Pulse CEO Carolyn Young was delighted that the former Silver Fern would be linking up with the team in the near future. “It’s great news that Liana is coming back into our environment, particularly with the team on such a high after beating the Magic in Hamilton for the first time,” she said.

“Liana was able to watch last night’s game from her home in Manchester and is really excited about returning to the Haier Pulse.”

“We look forward to seeing her back on court, once she and Robyn feel that she is ready.”

The Haier Pulse’s next game is against the Southern Steel at ILT Stadium Southland onMonday 14 April, centre pass at 7.40pm.
