Haier Pulse’s Selby-Rickit Signs on for 2015

1 August 2014

Haier Pulse coach Robyn Broughton continues to build her roster for 2015 after securing Te Huinga Reo Selby-Rickit for a fourth season with the team.

The 25-year-old joined the ANZ Championship team in 2012 following four years at the Southern Steel and has been a mainstay of the line-up ever since. The defender, who has two Silver Ferns caps to her name, finished in the top 10 for intercepts for the fifth consecutive year in 2014, as she continued to develop her partnership with Pulse captain Katrina Grant.

Haier Pulse and Netball Central Zone CEO Carolyn Young is delighted to have retained the services of a player who has been a big part of the team’s recent success. “Hu is a very talented and popular player and it’s fantastic news that she’ll be returning next year. She joins Katrina Grant and Ama Agbeze, ensuring we have good defensive options to choose from next season.

“Our recruitment for 2015 is going well and we are looking forward to a number of key announcements in the next few weeks,” said Carolyn.

The team has already secured mid-courters Elias Shadrock and Whitney Souness for the 2015 ANZ Championship.

“Our goal in 2015 will be to reach the play-offs for the first time after narrowly missing out in last two years and we are confident that the squad we are putting together will be capable of achieving that.”
