Grace Rasmussen

Valuable utility attacker Grace Rasmussen cut her teeth in international Netball at the 2005 World Youth Netball Championships as part of the winning NZU21 side.

In 2009, Rasmussen travelled to England as a training partner for the Silver Ferns, and was included in the Ferns squad soon after.

Of Samoan origin, it was a special moment for Grace to make her Silver Ferns' debut against Samoa in Porirua in 2010. She had frequent court time in pool play at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi on the path to New Zealand's victory.

Grace was an integral part of the Northern Mystics side in the ANZ Championship for six years until signing for the Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic for the 2014 season a move which paid dividends.
