Ameliaranne Ekenasio, who missed the 2021 campaign due to pregnancy, has confirmed she won’t be returning to the Pulse in 2022, the process of filling the quota of a third shooter underway.mcleodParticipantAugust 16, 2021 at 2:22 pmPost count: 1136
Gosh wonder where Meels is of to. Maybe being given a exemption to the SSN!!!.al_exParticipantAugust 16, 2021 at 2:25 pmPost count: 951
Ekenasio would be in huge demand in SSN with her shooting abilities. I think she’s probably just going to take the year off though.
It’s great to see players willing to move for court time. Hopefully one of the talented shooters from up north can make their way to the Tactix as well.NB12ParticipantAugust 16, 2021 at 2:31 pmPost count: 145
If Eke takes 2022 off, does that mean she won’t be available for CWG? That would be a big shame! But of course she shouldn’t feel the pressure to come back if she feels she is in need of a break.Ian HarkinModeratorAugust 16, 2021 at 2:47 pmPost count: 10196stars-supporterParticipantAugust 16, 2021 at 2:49 pmPost count: 37
Saviour Tui to the Steel too!Netballcrazy1ParticipantAugust 16, 2021 at 2:50 pmPost count: 1910
I think in NT’s recent interview after Ferns selection, she mentioned a few things about Eke (and a few other players) staying involved in the Ferns squad despite a few different circumstances they could be facing. I would assume NT would have already known about Ekenasio’s decision around that point.Ian HarkinModeratorAugust 16, 2021 at 2:54 pmPost count: 10196WaylayParticipantAugust 16, 2021 at 2:56 pmPost count: 220
I am shocked that Metuarau has moved from the Steel, but makes a little more sense reading that Ekenasio isn’t returning to the Pulse. I can’t see Ekenasio moving clubs, her family seems very settled in Wellington – a year off looks likely. But then again….why would Noels include her in the 21/22 Ferns Squad if she knew she had no intentions of playing next year?

Wow still in shock. Great to have both Dunn and Metuarau back together.
Isn’t the ANZp starting earlier to accommodate the CWG? I thought G.Bueta was ‘keen’ playing 4 months after birth. I’m presuming AE is choosing to sit out the season and return once she regains full fitness.BallerParticipantAugust 16, 2021 at 3:30 pmPost count: 349
Congratulations Tui on securing a (most likely) starting spot.NesianParticipantAugust 16, 2021 at 5:02 pmPost count: 149
The Pulse couldn’t sign both Meels and Tiana. I’m sure Tiana would have been a cheaper option as she wanted to go home. I have no doubt she would have made more money at the Steel. It will be good to see Dunn and Tiana together again as the league couldn’t stop them when they were 17 and 18.
Meels isn’t going to SSN, just another franchise.
Tui going to the Steel is a great move too.
