Adding extra clout to her arsenal, lofty defender Kelly Jury is back for a third season with the Pulse in 2022. Primarily a goalkeeper, Jury spent most of 2021 learning the intricacies of goal defence while also being part of the leadership group, both producing positive returns. She is now a viable option for both in-circle defensive positions, giving the Pulse choice and variation at the defensive end. At 1.92m, Jury is one of the tallest defenders in the country, a constant threat with her disruptive lean and rebounding ability while adding another dimension when roaming further up-court. Still on the way to reaching her full potential, Jury made her Silver Ferns debut in 2017, the same year she played an instrumental role in the NZU21 team’s title-winning exploits at the World Youth Cup.
