Just as she did for the Netball World Cup in 2019, lofty shooter Te Paea Selby-Rickit has timed her run perfectly to earn a recall to the Silver Ferns for a second Commonwealth Games campaign, following the 2018 edition.
After missing out on recent Silver Ferns selections, Selby-Rickit has rebounded in style on the back of an impressive season with the Tactix where she shone in a struggling team. Able to play both shooting roles with equal effect make Selby-Rickit a valuable asset, her experience both domestically and internationally have extended her repertoire and defined her play-making skills and decision-making.
After making her Silver Ferns debut in 2016, Selby-Rickit has become an influential leader in the Tactix attack line with her ability to direct play and set up the shooting circle.
Height, shooting nous and attacking smarts make Selby-Rickit a constant threat in the circle while her subtle court craft extends to clever off-loads and the ability to be a playmaker. A strong mover while also having the ability to play a holding role make Selby-Rickit a dangerous shooting opponent.
