Don't miss Sam Curtis on tour!
Recently promoted and now called on tour; a dislocated thumb for a fellow cricketer means Cooney Lees Morgan Associate, Sam Curtis, will join the White Ferns One-Day squad to contest the Rose Bowl in Auckland and Mount Maunganui. Don't miss this local opportunity to see our girl in action!
“Sam was unlucky to have missed out on the initial squad and is now coming off a match-winning unbeaten 111 off just 72 balls in the SkyCity Hamilton NPL on the weekend — the best innings I have seen her play,” said White Fern's Head coach HaideeTiffen. “The way she combatted the threat of Holly Huddleston was a great sign of a player hitting her best form. Sam will bring her strength to our ODI middle order..."
