Lofty defender Kelly Jury is back for a second season with the Pulse in 2021 after moving from the Magic. At 1.92m, Jury is one of the tallest defenders in the country and is a constant threat with her disruptive lean and rebounding ability. Injury-free for the first time in two years, Jury revelled in her first season with the Pulse. Still on the way to reaching her full potential, Jury capped a stellar year with a recall to the Silver Ferns squad for the first time since 2018 after making her international debut in 2017, the same year she played an instrumental role in the NZU21 team’s title-winning exploits at the World Youth Cup. With her extra height, Jury has a real presence and adds another dimension to the defence line.
