Well-travelled former Silver Ferns defender Leana de Bruin returns to the Stars after spending a season with the Adelaide Thunderbirds.

A foundation member of the Stars in 2017, de Bruin has thrived with age and responsibility and will provide plenty of experience and leadership quality to the Stars ranks. Able to play both in-circle defensive positions with equal authority, the willowy de Bruin backs up her tight and effective circle presence with strong through-court drives and support play. Naturally athletic, de Bruin’s mobility, strength in the air, long reach and uncompromising attitude are perfect assets in the defensive line. She became the fifth Silver Fern to achieve 100 test caps.
