Kristiana Manu'a

Goal Defence, Goal Keeper

Biography

The 1.82m and strongly-built Manu’a, who is predominantly a goal defence but capable of playing all three back court positions, represented Australia at age-group level in NSW but made her elite level domestic debut in New Zealand with the Magic in 2015-16 during the former trans-Tasman league.

She was part of the Australian Diamonds team for the 2016 Netball Quad Series but having not played for them since is eligible for New Zealand selection and doesn’t count as an import.

Nervous and excited, Manu’a is looking forward to the challenge of immersing herself in New Zealand netball while the opportunity to work alongside Pulse specialist and former Silver Ferns coach Wai Taumaunu was a major drawcard.
