Missing all of 2020 following a serious knee injury, talented shooter Monica Falkner had further injury problems in 2021. She has now shifted cross-town from the Stars and will suit up with the Mystics in 2022 looking to reignite her career in a young shooting line-up. Falkner has long been a player with heaps of quality and promise, making big strides in 2020 after celebrating her Silver Ferns debut before injury thwarted her progress. A sure shot, strong movement, safe hands and rebounding ability are trademark qualities of the athletic shooter. Selected for her first Silver Ferns squad in 2017-18, Falkner was a member of the World Youth Cup winning NZU21 team in 2017 and was part of the FAST5 Ferns triumphant Fast5 Netball World Series-winning team in 2018.
