Janine Southby has taken over from Waimarama Taumaunu as New Zealand coach for November's Fast5 Netball World Series in Auckland.

Southby, the Southern Steel and New Zealand under-21 coach, takes on the role in a bid to give her more international experience. Taumaunu coached the team for the past two editions of the event.

Southby's naming coincides with the announcement of the Fast5 Ferns, which features a raft of first-string Silver Ferns, along with national squad members like Katarina Cooper and Shannon Francois.

This year's event, for which New Zealand are defending champions, also includes national teams from England, South Africa, Australia, Malawi and Jamaica. The tournament runs from November 8-10 at Vector Arena.

Fast5 Ferns: Casey Kopua, Laura Langman, Ann Thompson, Courtney Tairi, Cathrine Latu, Katrina Grant, Katarina Cooper, Shannon Francois, Te Huinga Reo Selby-Rickit, Maria Tutaia. Coach: Janine Southby.
