Experienced and accomplished midcourter Gina Crampton will be back for a ninth season with the Steel in 2020.
The well-performed wing attack, who also plays centre, has speed and a strong drive off the line combined with a deft feeding ability into the shooting circle. Winner of the Aspiring Silver Fern award in 2015, Crampton backed it up with the New Zealand ANZ Championship Player of the Year in 2016. A senior player and leader in the Steel, Crampton was consistently effective during 2018 and 2019, highlighted by her recall to the Silver Ferns for the end of season international window in 2018. That form was reinforced when she became a world champion with the triumphant Silver Ferns at the 2019 World Cup.
