Pocket rocket midcourter Kimiora Poi has delivered on her exciting promise and will be back for a third season with the Tactix in 2020.
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 and All Stars team over the last couple of years. She gained further experience as a replacement player for the Collingwood Magpies during the 2019 Australian season followed by selection in the 2019-20 Silver Ferns squad.
