Midcourter Claire Kersten caught everyone’s attention in 2017, backed that up in 2018 playing a new position and is set to deliver again in 2019.

On the back of regular court time, Kersten’s game has continued to evolve. From being a rock-solid wing defence, Kersten moved into centre last season with impressive results. Physically and mentally strong, Kersten has a calm demeanour, leads by example through her work ethic and is a senior leader at the Pulse. Kersten was a Silver Ferns and played for NZA while also being vice-captain of the jubilant FAST5 Ferns World Series -winning team during 2018.
