Exhaustion has forced two of the country's leading female athletes to take a break from their sport, in recent weeks. Silver Ferns captain Ameliaranne Ekenasio will miss the start of the national netball competition - with her coach saying she's exhausted and needs to reset.

That news comes hot on the heels of the White Ferns captain Sophie Devine taking time off to recover from fatigue.
