Shooting star Georgia Rowe has joined Team Northumbria ahead of the 2017 Netball Superleague season as Te Aroha Keenan’s new-look roster starts to take shape.
The Welsh international has swapped the Celtic Dragons for Sport Central in a move that looks set to breathe new life into the TN attack.
And Keenan – who is no stranger to giving players with potential their big chance – can already see signs that Rowe is ready to make a significant impact on Tyneside.
“Georgia has moved north and has already settled in well at training,” said TN’s Kiwi playcaller.
“This is a big move for Georgia but her relationship with Chiara [Semple] has already blossomed and this will be necessary going forward into the league season.
“What has impressed is her shooting accuracy and strength for a 1.96cm tall player.
“Georgia has a steely determination which will fit well within the culture we are developing within this squad.”
Semple made a massive impact in a TN dress during her first Superleague campaign – despite missing the start of the season as a result of passport problems.
And one of the top flight’s star performers will continue her rapid rise at this week’s Netball Europe Youth Championship in Cardiff.
Dual national Semple will represent England Under 21s at an event that doubles up as a World Youth Championship qualifier ahead of Botswana 2017.
