Silver Ferns rely on Bobby’s statistical analysis skills to pursue gold

08 June 2011

Bobby Willcox plays a vital role in the Silver Ferns - she gets to combine her love for numbers together with her interest in netball to assist coaches in selecting teams and improving player performance. Netball New Zealand high performance director Tracey Fear describes Bobby as a “key member of the national programme. Selectors can see some real, hard statistics which add another dimension to the selection process.”

The journey for Bobby so far has been exciting; Bobby travelled to two Commonwealth Games and one world championship. And there is the promise of another one taking place later this year.
