The Silver Fern's stalwart Joline Henry has withdrawn from New Zealand netball squad after announcing her pregnancy but is still keen to return to netball next year.

The 29-year-old made her debut in 2004 and has 68 Silver Ferns test caps to her name.

Henry has indicated she wants to make a return to netball for next year's ANZ Championship and the 2013 Silver Ferns season.

The Silver Ferns coach Waimarama Taumaunu says Henry will be missed in the upcoming Silver Ferns season, but is looking forward to her return.
