Experienced and accomplished midcourter Gina Crampton returns for a second season with the Stars in 2022 and her 11th overall at the elite level. The well-performed wing attack, who also plays centre, has speed and a strong drive off the line combined with a deft feeding ability into the shooting circle. Winner of the Aspiring Silver Fern award in 2015, Crampton backed it up with the New Zealand ANZ Championship Player of the Year in 2016. A non-stop contributor, Crampton’s senior player status has added vital experience and leadership to the Stars line-up. Consistently effective during 2018 - 2021, that form was reinforced when Crampton became a world champion with the triumphant Silver Ferns at the 2019 World Cup.
