Paige Hadley made a triumphant return to netball in 2015 after an ACL injury sidelined her last year. The young versatile mid-courter earned a surprise selection in the Australian Diamonds team for her maiden World Cup, playing in a variety of midcourt positions throughout Australia’s successful Netball World Cup campaign in 2015.

The Netball World Cup gold medal capped off a remarkable 12 months for Hadley, who first made her international debut against Malawi in 2013 before returning to the international stage at Netball World Cup two years later.
