Late blooming midcourter Claire Kersten continues to evolve her game and returns to the Pulse in 2020 after three defining seasons.
On the back of regular court time, Kersten’s game has gone from strength-to-strength. From being a rock-solid wing defence, Kersten moved into centre in 2018 with impressive results. Physically and mentally strong, Kersten has a calm demeanour, leads by example through her work ethic, is a potent force on attack and defensively and is a senior leader at the Pulse. During 2019, she was a member of the Silver Ferns Development Squad, a position she has retained heading into 2020, and the All Stars team. Kersten made her Silver Ferns debut in 2018 while also being vice-captain of the jubilant FAST5 Ferns World Series-winning team.
