Foundation member Kayla Johnson (nee Cullen) makes a return to the Stars in 2022 after two years out of elite level netball and the birth of her first child last year. A prodigious talent from a young age, the former Silver Ferns defender has had an injury-plagued career, including two ACL knee reconstructions, but is now ready for another shot at the top. At her best, Cullen is a match-winner. Speed off the mark, ability in the air and genuine dynamic athleticism have made Cullen a versatile player. Strong defensive qualities combined with an attacking flair make her equally comfortable at either wing or goal defence while she is also no stranger to centre.
