Tairi out for rest of ANZ Championship

9:31 am on 25 May 2012

The Southern Steel midcourter Courtney Tairi will miss the remainder of the trans-Tasman netball season after tearing knee ligaments during the side's recent match against the Northern Mystics.

She'll undergo surgery next week. It's a blow for the 23-year-old Sydney-born New Zealander, who's been tipped for higher honours and was included in Netball New Zealand's accelerant squad.

The Otago midcourter Gina Crampton will remain with the Steel squad for Monday night's game against the Pulse in Dunedin.
