WA, C

A fast and agile midcourter, sport genes run in Tayla Honey’s family – with her father and mother both former professional athletes (her mother Di Honey an Australian netballer).

Going from strength-to-strength, Honey’s experience playing for the Geelong Cougars in the Bupa Victorian Netball League and the Victorian Fury in the Deakin University Australian Netball League – coupled with her willingness to learn – have set the youngster up for a stellar netball career.

Unfortunately, an injury to her Achilles tendon sidelined Honey for the 2019 SSN season. She will be ready to roar in 2020 though, as she steps on court with her fellow Vixens.
