PREVIOUSLY PLAYED WITH: NSW Swifts
PLACE OF BIRTH: Australia
A Sunshine Coast native, Wood relished the opportunity of training and playing alongside arguably the world's best Goal Shooter in Caitlin Bassett during the 2017 Suncorp Super Netball season.
With maturity, speed and netball smarts, Wood was a pivotal figure at Lightning's attacking end week in, week out. Despite missing the first few rounds with injury, the playmaker went on to star for the side in the national competition. Her ability to see the play before it unfolds was a big asset for Noelene Taura’s team.
The Goal Attack, who's also comfortable at Wing Attack, had redemption following the foundation Club's premiership title after coming agonisingly close in the 2015 and 2016 Trans Tasman Netball League Grand Finals with her former side, New South Wales. Her court craft was too much to handle for GIANTS Netball in the decider and her 16-goal haul nearly earned her MVP honours.
Her consistent performances were duly noted by Australian Diamonds selectors and she earned selection in the national squad for the 2017 Constellation Cup where she will add to her two Test caps.
