Dynamic defender Temalisi Fakahokotau makes her much-anticipated return to the elite level in 2020 after missing the entire 2019 season with a serious knee injury.
Making the move south to the Tactix in 2017 coincided with a return to her formidable best for the irrepressible Fakahokotau. A supremely fit and well-conditioned Fakahokotau produced sparkling returns in 2017 and 2018 for the Tactix while paving the way for a Silver Ferns recall after a three-year absence for the game-changing defender. With an impressive standing jump, sure handling and athletic ability, the energetic Fakahokotau is a naturally talented defender with the ability to cover all three defensive positions. Fakahokotau has been named in the 2019-20 Silver Ferns Development squad.
