A foundation member of the Stars when they were formed ahead of the 2017 season, exciting young talent Fa’amu Ioane is back with the team after missing all of 2019 with a serious knee injury, sustained during the 2018 campaign. Initially a circle defender, Ioane was quickly transitioned to the midcourt when stepping up to the elite level. Playing her first season at top level for the Mystics in 2016, Ioane established herself as a very capable wing defence/centre when switching to the Stars. She was rewarded for her nuggety, relentless and consistently effective presence on court with a spot in the richly talented NZU21 team which went on to claim the World Youth Cup in Botswana in 2017.
