Taneisha Fifita

  • DOB: 02/02/2001
  • Height: 185cm

After earning her first full contract in 2020, promising young defender Taneisha Fifita spent two years in the Steel line-up before leaving as a 20-year-old on overseas missionary work in 2022. Receiving the full support of the Steel franchise while away for her 18-month mission in Brisbane, the door was always left open for her return to the netball ranks. A shooter through much of her school years at Waitaki Girls High, the 1.85m Fifita had been groomed as a defender in recent years, including for the Southern Blast in the NNL for which she was first selected as a 15-year-old. Fifita featured consistently in the Steel line-up during their 2020 and 2021 campaigns where she continued to enhance her all-round defensive game. Fifita’s entire family relocated from Oamaru to Invercargill, to add their support, when she took the leap into semi-professional sport in her first year out of school. Fifita played for the NZSS team in 2018 and 2019.
