"Last year I was selected as a training partner but luckily enough someone pulled out and I got to play,” she said.

"This year I was selected outright and I was pretty happy. It was a confidence booster, being a training partner you felt you were not quite good enough.”

Pearce has been training this season to better her game.

"I feel as though I have improved so much,” she said.

"I have started travelling to Nambour for rep because Gympie does not have one and I wanted to experience that next level of netball.

"I have doubled my training from last year. I go to Nambour twice a week to train and I have noticed how my fitness has improved and also pre-empting where the ball is going.
