Australiasia Netball

Taurua rated among Australasia's top coaches

On Sunday, Taurua will attempt to guide her Sunshine Coast Lightning to a third straight Super Netball title in her farewell match - against NSW Swifts in the grand final in Brisbane.

Few would bet against it.

Success follows Taurua wherever she goes and her stocks have never been higher after she masterminded New Zealand's turnaround to topple Australia as world champions in July.

A veteran of 34 Tests for New Zealand, until a knee injury ended her playing days in 1999, Taurua found her calling in coaching.
