Co-Captain of the Melbourne Vixens, Liz Watson is one of the most dynamic midcourters in the country.
Liz Watson has cemented herself as one of the best netballers in the country.
Having a standout season after moving to wing attack from her usual centre position in 2017, Watson has led the entire competition for goal assists and feeds in the last two seasons.
Making a rapid rise since being a late call-up to the team in 2014, Watson has gone from strength to strength since making her debut.
Winning a premiership in her first season of elite netball, and further adding to her trophy cabinet in 2020 Watson is eager to step back out on court for the Vixens.
After suffering a season ending foot injury at the start of the 2021 season the world class midcourter is well and truly on the mend and in for another stellar year.
Now a key member and captain of the Origin Australian Diamonds team, Watson has established herself as a starting midcourter for the Diamonds.
