More about the Northern Stars & Guest Panel

Temepara Bailey

Irrepressible pocket rocket Temepara Bailey will step out of retirement to play dual roles for the Stars in 2019. The dynamic midcourter will continue as the Stars assistant coach while also suiting up as a player after answering an emergency call-up to bolster the midcourt playing stocks. Bailey, 43, last played elite level netball in 2014 but has continued playing at club level and has retained her outstanding levels of fitness. Bailey, who enjoyed a decorated international career, has often been used as an extra training partner/player during team training in the previous two seasons and offers a wealth of experience and leadership on and off the court.

Maia Wilson

Returning Stars shooter, Maia Wilson has had a memorable career in just a few short years on the main stage. The precocious talent was a Silver Fern by the end of her debut season (2016) at the elite level. Blessed with an unflappable temperament, accuracy, strong netballing nous and maturity beyond her years, Wilson is an outstanding young talent and poised to leave a considerable mark on the game. She was a key performer in the NZU21 team’s unbeaten run to the World Youth Cup title in 2017 while also being part of the FAST5 Ferns triumphant surge to the World Series title in 2016

Kayla Cullen

One of the most dynamic and athletic players in the game, Kayla Cullen has had an injury-ravaged career but always bounces back as a critical member for the Stars. Leaving a strong impression after first bursting onto the scene in 2011, the world-class Cullen has had to overcome a string of injury setbacks and makes her return in 2019 after a lengthy time out. At her best, Cullen is a match-winner.

Kirsten Hellier

A dynamic athlete who coached World Champion shot putter Valerie Adams for 12 years and was NetBall New Zealand's National Manager - Coach Developer. Kirsten is an accomplished javelin thrower on the world stage, who represented New Zealand at the Olympic Games and won a Silver at the Commonwealth Games in 1994.
