Iwi - Ngāti Porou / Cook Islands
Coming into her fourth season with the Pulse in 2020, shooting sensation Tiana Metuarau is now something of a seasoned pro but as a 19-year-old remains a youthful presence. Called in as a replacement in 2017, Metuarau made an instant impact at the elite level in Pulse colours and nothing has changed on that front. Unfazed by the challenges presented against seasoned opponents, the talented teen has impressed with her maturity and poise while reinforcing her credentials and bright future. Metuarau capped a standout 2017 with her inclusion in the triumphant World Youth Cup-winning NZU21 team. In 2018 she was named in the 2018-19 Silver Ferns Development Squad and NZA team.
