Waimarama Taumaunu

(1962 - )

Waimarama Taumaunu
“Wai”, as she is universally known, was only in her mid-teens when she entered representative netball for Canterbury and by 1981, she was in the national team.

Through the 80s, she formed an accomplished defence pairing with goalkeep Tracy Fear, a combination that greatly contributed to New Zealand’s world championship win in 1987. Captain from 1989 to 1991, Taumaunu was physically imposing on the court and had instinctive flair combined with a great appreciation of strategy.

Her final international was in what was regarded as one of the best international netball matches, a one-goal loss to Australia in the 1991 world championship final.
