The Southern Steel have snapped up veteran Auckland-based defender Rachel Rasmussen for next year's trans-Tasman netball competition.

Rasmussen, 28, will provide valuable experience in what will be a young Steel defensive end in 2013.

The 1.83m Rasmussen has spent four seasons with the Northern Mystics since the advent of the trans-Tasman league, and also had a stint with the Central Pulse in 2010.

She is the elder sister of Silver Ferns' shooter-midcourter Grace Rasmussen.

Rasmssen's signing means the Steel have one remaining spot in their squad for next season, which they will use on a shooter.

Southern Steel contracted players:


Shooters: Jodi Brown, Te Paea Selby-Rickit, Kate Shearer.
Midcourters: Courtney Tairi, Wendy Frew, Shannon Francois, Phillipa Finch, Gina Crampton, Stacey Peeters
Defenders: Storm Purvis, Sulu Tone-Fitzpatrick, Phoenix Karaka, Rachel Rasmussen,
