In the wake of the departure of coach Noeline Taurua and Laura Langman Silver Ferns shooter Irene van Dyk says the time seemed right to also make a move from the Waikato-Bay of Plenty Magic netball franchise.

After 11 years with the Magic Wellington based van Dyk has signed with the Pulse for next season's ANZ championship.

She says her shift is also linked to next year's Commonwealth Games and the 2015 World Championships.

She believes the Pulse's mid court players look to be in contention for international duty and she wants to build a strong working relationship with them.
