A product of Motueka High School, near Nelson, rock-solid midcourter Shannon Francois joined the Steel in 2012.

A tireless, no-frills type of player, Francois is a whole-hearted performer who can match it with the best through her dogged determination, relentless commitment and ability to execute. Coming into her ninth year with the Steel, Francois offers invaluable experience and strong leadership to the side.
