Joining the Stars last year, defender Storm Purvis returns in 2020 as the senior player at the back end of the court. A talented track runner growing up, Purvis has used that athletic ability to etch out an impressive record on the netball court. Deceptively quick, coupled with a long reach, has helped fashion Purvis into a dangerous in-circle defender. Speed has helped her become a handy roamer for turnovers while strength in the air has been a key advantage in the rebounding stakes. Purvis captained the NZU21 team to the World Youth Cup title in 2013 and went on to make her Silver Ferns debut in 2016.
