After a year away, explosive young shooter Tiana Metuarau returns to the Pulse for the 2022 season with an enhanced game. In search of more court time, Metuarau revelled as the starting goal attack for the Steel last season, the results evident after she delivered an impressive season with her court craft, power, improved shooting numbers and dynamic movement. As a result, she earned selection, for the first time, in the Silver Ferns squad. A replacement player for the Pulse in 2017 as a 16-year-old schoolgirl, Metuarau is already something of a seasoned pro despite her tender years, four years with the Pulse and one with the Steel underlining a growing experience base. Blessed with an abundant skillset, Metuarau’s maturity and poise have her well-primed to push her game to new heights.
