NSL stars set to light up Fast 5 Netball World Series

London Pulse’s Zara Everitt will lead England on Saturday morning, as the Fast 5 Netball World Series returns.

Defending champions New Zealand are hosting the weekend-long tournament that sees the top six teams in the world battle it out for one last piece of silverware in 2022.

The Netball Super League provides all ten of the Vitality Roses squad who will look to reclaim the trophy they won in 2011 and 2017.

Lois Pearson, Paige Reed and Alicia Scholes are all in line for England debuts and Roses fans will need their alarm clocks at the ready with England’s first game starting at 1am on Saturday.

Ones to watch

Everitt and her Pulse teammate Ellie Rattu are the two players to have already donned the famous red dress at senior level, both earning their first caps in England’s series whitewash of Uganda in October.

Natasha Pavelin of Team Bath was also part of Jess Thirlby’s squad for the final home series of the year but is yet to make her debut.

Shooter Emma Thacker has been selected after a strong showing for Loughborough Lightning in the 2022 NSL season.

Team Bath youngster Jayda Pechová is also in the squad and is riding high after being nominated for the SportsAid One-to-Watch Award.

There will be NSL talent in the opposition when England take on Uganda with Loughborough Lightning’s Mary Cholhok and Proscovia Peace of Surrey Storm named in the SheCranes team.

Two new Leeds Rhinos recruits will go up against each other in the Vitality Roses’ first match at 1am on Saturday.

Elle McDonald could make her England debut while facing South Africa’s Nicola Smith who have joined a new-look Rhinos team for the 2023 season.


The Vitality Roses will also take on Australia, New Zealand and Jamaica in Christchurch with the gold medal final at 6:50am on Sunday.
