Exciting young shooter Monica Falkner returns to the Magic in 2018 after a standout introduction to the elite level last year.

From the small township of Opotiki on the east coast of the North Island, it didn’t take Falkner long to make a significant splash. A sure shot, strong movement, safe hands and rebounding ability were trademark qualities the young goal attack displayed from the outset. Selected for her first Silver Ferns squad in 2017-18, Falkner further showcased her credentials with the World Youth Cup winning NZU21 team in Botswana last year.
