Silver Ferns captain out of Fast5 Tournament

1:31 pm on 6 November 2012

The Silver Ferns captain Casey Williams has pulled out of the New Zealand side for the upcoming Fast5 World Netball Series in Auckland because of injury.

The tournament, which begins on Friday, is a shortened form of the game.

Williams played a limited part in the recent Quad Series because of a knee injury and also suffered an ankle injury in last week's test win over Australia.

Coach Wai Taumaunu has called in Te Huinga Reo Selby-Rickit to the squad.

Selby-Rickit was part of the silver medal-winning FastNet Ferns team at last year's World Netball Series in Liverpool.

Laura Langman will now captain the side with New Zealand's opening game against Jamaica.
