Tariana Turia was thrilled to hear the news that Waimarama Taumaunu (Ngati Porou) is the new head coach of the Silver Ferns.
“I’m super proud of Waimarama as I know many others are too. This is great news for her and her whanau.
“Waimarama has been around netball for many years and her experiences under Ruth Aitken and veteran Lois Muir have prepared her well for what’s ahead.
“She has a wealth of knowledge from her various roles through the years as a Silver Fern, teacher, public servant, overseas with England, and of course as a mother and wife; all of these experiences will contribute something unique for the future of New Zealand netball.
“Waimarama’s a great role model for all our young women, the country over, who aspire to become Silver Ferns.
“I wish her well and will certainly be watching the upcoming test series”.
