Other After becoming Fiji's top defender and playing 55 tests for her home country, Vilimaina moved to Christchurch in 2000 and was quickly snapped up by the New Zealand side to play South Africa that same year.

She shared goal keeping duties with Anna Scarlett during the recent Fisher & Paykel Series against England, picking off a series of stunning intercepts and proving herself a defensive force to be reckoned with around the goal circle.

On court, she is forceful and feared with her aerial game and long reach continuing to amaze her huge band of fans. Off court, she is described as funny, shy and unpretentious.

Discipline and fitness have combined to further improve Vilimaina's all-round game.

She claims the most enjoyable thing about playing netball is the tours and meeting other top netballers.
