C, WA

Co-Vice-Captain

Liz Watson has cemented herself as one of the best netballers in the country.

Having a standout season after moving to wing attack from her usual centre position in 2017, Watson has led the entire competition for goal assists and feeds in the last two seasons.

Making a rapid rise since being a late call-up to the team in 2014, Watson has gone from strength to strength since making her debut.

Winning a premiership in her first season of elite netball, Watson now knows what it takes to claim the elusive premiership and has the drive for more.

Now a key member of the Samsung Australian Diamonds team, Watson has established herself as a starting midcourter for the Diamonds.
