New midcourters destined for Silver Ferns debut

There will be several new faces in the Silver Ferns netball side when the squad for the Constellation Cup series against Australia is named next week.

Coach Wai Taumaunu needs to fill the gap left by the loss of experienced midcourters Liana Leota, Joline Henry and Temepara George.

Laura Langman's the only midcourter left from last year's World Championship team.

Millie Lees, Grace Rasmussen and Kayla Cullen are the leading contenders with players having a series of trials this week in Auckland and Taumaunu says there will be one or two surprises.

The side for the three tests against Australia will be named on Monday.
