The Central Pulse netball team have pulled off the greatest signing coup in their history by securing the services of Silver Fern goal shoot Irene van Dyk.
Van Dyk, 41, is based in Wellington, and played for the Capital shakers up until 2002, when she joined the Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic.
She has long been regarded as the world's finest goal shoot, and eyebrows have been raised at her reluctance to play for The Pulse, her hometown team in the trans-Tasman netball competition.
But after 11 years of commuting up the North Island to Hamilton, van Dyk is finally home.
