Maria Tutaia

One of the most skilled long-range shooters in the world, Maria Tutaia continues to thrill audiences with her deadly accuracy and elegant shooting style.

After two seasons with ANZ Championship side WBOP Magic, Tutaia moved to Auckland where she is captain of the Northern Mystics and paired with Cathrine Latu in the attacking circle the duo are a formidable shooting force.

Now a senior member of the Silver Ferns side, Tutaia is fast closing in on 100 test caps for the Silver Ferns, the 27-year old now on track to reach the milestone over the next few seasons.
