Winikerei takes Mystics reins for 2023

THOUGH the ANZ Premiership off-season usually provides lots of player movement, the Northern Mystics have made an off-field change, with current apprentice coach Tia Winikerei appointed to the head coach position. Winikerei takes over from Helene Wilson who will move into a role at High Performance Sport New Zealand after six years in charge of […]

2022 ANZ Premiership review: Central Pulse

IT was a remarkable come-from-behind premiership victory for Central Pulse who caught the two northern sides and ended up with the automatic grand final spot. Finishing on top helped, as it gave the Pulse the extra rest, and set the eventual premiers up for a big grand final win. They were red-hot from the first […]

2022 ANZ Premiership review: Northern Stars

FINISHING one win short of the 2022 ANZ Premiership title, the Northern Stars can still look back fondly on the season, knowing they did all they could to try and grab the trophy. The Stars won more games than any other side, picking up 11 regular season wins and only dropping four, while winning their […]

2022 ANZ Premiership review: Northern Mystics

THERE will be a lot of ‘what ifs?’ about the 2022 ANZ Premiership season for the Northern Mystics. The reigning premiers stormed out of the blocks to be the clear benchmark team early, and even with some COVID-19 interruptions and postponements, the Mystics took a lead that, until the last few games looked unassailable. Then […]

2022 ANZ Premiership review: Southern Steel

NARROWLY missing out on an ANZ Premiership finals place by finishing fourth, Southern Steel had some outstanding games, and some forgettable games. The Steel burst onto the scene by stunning Mainland Tactix to the tune of 17 goals, before a week later getting rolled by Northern Mystics, 70-50. Though inconsistent, the Steel did manage to […]

2022 ANZ Premiership review: Mainland Tactix

IT was an unlucky year for the Mainland Tactix, who ended up on the bottom of the ANZ Premiership ladder, but can take away the fact they did not have the least amount of wins. They picked up five for the season – one more than the Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic – but due […]

2022 ANZ Premiership review: WBOP Magic

FINISHING fifth on the 2022 ANZ Premiership ladder, the Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic did not quite click this year despite having a big off-season in terms of recruiting. The Magic won four games from their 15 games – the least amount of wins of any side – but finished above Mainland Tactix due to […]

Pulse dominate Stars to take title

THE Central Pulse are the toast of New Zealand netball, after they beat the Northern Stars 56-37 to win the 2022 ANZ Premiership title. Their dominant win sees them claim their third title in their history, and officially become the most successful franchise in the history of the competition. It was actually the Stars who […]
