Back for a sixth season with the Tactix in 2023, pocket rocket midcourter Kimiora Poi continues to excel through her mix of speed and skill. In a sign of her growing leadership qualities, Poi captained the Tactix in 2022. Standing at just 1.69m, a lack of height does nothing to detract from Poi’s silky playmaking skills. A gifted athlete with speed to burn, a healthy dose of flair and precision passing, Poi has revelled at senior level. A World Youth Cup winner with the NZU21 team in 2017, Poi has gained further attention with her selection in the Silver Ferns Development Squad, NZA team, World Series title-winning FAST5 Ferns line-up, All Stars team and Silver Ferns in recent years. She gained further experience as a replacement player for the Collingwood Magpies during the 2019 Australian season.
