Temepara George considers playing for Samoa

6:50 pm on 24 July 2008

Temepara George is contemplating a return to international netball next year but it may not be with the Silver Ferns.

Yesterday George announced she would be back for the Mystics in next year's trans Tasman competition and even indicated she may look to make herself available for the Silver Ferns again after stepping away from international play in the middle of last year.

George says she can't commit to playing this year but will look at things next year once she's settled into her new job as a player development officer with Counties Manukau netball.

Silver Ferns coach Ruth Aitken says she wants current players to commit at least until the 2010 Commonwealth Games and if that proves too much for George, she could look to play for Samoa, who's she's also eligible to play for.
