After making her debut in 2017, towering young shooter Jennifer O’Connell has become an influential figure in the Steel team.

The 1.93m goal shoot makes her return in 2019 after a defining 2018 season. In her first season as a regular starting player, the promising Dunedin-born O’Connell shouldered the responsibility with great effect. Physically stronger, O’Connell added more variety to her game through greater movement, a strong standing jump and accuracy. O’Connell finished with an impressive season under her belt and is poised to build on the foundations. Looking at a promising future, O’Connell was named in the 2018-19 Silver Ferns Development Squad and 2018 NZA team.
