New mum, Ekenasio is welcomed back to the Pulse fold after missing the 2017 season through pregnancy while rising young talent Dunn has been lured north from Invercargill.

Silky-skilled Ekenasio, 26, played for the Pulse in 2015 and 2016, is still coming to grips with motherhood after the birth of son Ocean in May 2017 but was back playing club netball within three weeks.

`I can’t wait to really get back into things with the Pulse,’’ she said. `I’ve never sat on the sideline like that before so it was a big change for me.

`I’ve had a few weeks of playing club which is still pretty fresh but it’s so good to be back out on court.’’

With Tiana Metuarau, another teenaged prodigy in the Pulse shooting mix, Ekenasio is welcoming the role of senior pro and taking the youngsters under her wing.

`It was a role I was supposed to have this season and I’m definitely more than happy to take on a leadership position for that part of the court and with the young players,’’ she said.
