An early season injury setback stalled the progress of towering shooter Jennifer O’Connell, who made her Steel debut last year.

The promising young Dunedin-born shooter will be back in Steel colours in 2018, looking to build on the foundations gained last year and from her time spent in the South Beko Netball League team. She has been a part of the Silver Ferns Development squad and is a former member of the NZU21 squad. Standing at 1.93m, O’Connell will present as one of the tallest in this year’s competition.
