New Silver Fern Karin Burger is testament to the fact resilience and perseverance pays off after she made the bold decision to come to New Zealand from South Africa as an 18-year-old in 2012 to chase her Netball dream.

Burger made the change from in-circle defender to wing defence during the 2018 ANZ Premiership season with great success. Very quick off the mark, tall for the position and robust, Burger made an instant hit in the position to be a regular starter and with time will prosper further.

An impressive athlete, Burger was a standout figure during 2018 with her consistently high standards, ability to make things happen and on-court tenacity. Being able to play all three defensive positions is another string to her bow.
