Cullen more nervous with media than over big final

The teenage Northern Mystics defender Kayla Cullen says she's more nervous about the buildup to Sunday's trans-Tasman netball final against the Queensland Firebirds in Brisbane than the game itself.

Cullen has been named as Best Young Player in the competition after last week making the tournament's All Star Team, in just her second season.

Cullen says all the media attention is taking some getting used to.

Cullen says she's recovered from the calf injury she suffered in the win over the New South Wales Swifts in the first playoff game.
