Continuing to forge a formidable reputation, rangy defender Karin Burger is back for a fourth season at the Pulse after producing stellar returns in 2018 and 2019.

Since securing the Beko Netball League player of the year in 2016, 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.
