Continuing to forge a formidable reputation, rangy defender Karin Burger will be back for a second season with the Tactix in 2022. Since securing the National Netball League player of the year title in 2016 with Central Manawa, the South African-born Burger’s play has gone to new levels which in 2018 propelled her into the Silver Ferns squad and the Fast5 Netball World Series-winning FAST5 Ferns team. The tall and athletic Burger capped a meteoric rise as part of the triumphant 2019 Silver Ferns World Cup-winning team. Capable of covering all three defensive positions, Burger is quick, has a nose for the intercept and never takes a backward step. A devastating defender, Burger won back-to-back ANZ Premiership titles with the Pulse in 2019 and 2020.
