Sports A-Gender: Tahuhu to the rescue?

After a third crushing defeat in ODIs to South Africa, the White Ferns could be looking to speedster Lea Tahuhu as their saviour in the T20 series that serves as their warm up to next month's T20 World Cup.

Tahuhu is back in the White Ferns squad for the three T20 matches against South Africa starting on Sunday, after the pace bowler took time out to be with her White Ferns wife Amy Satterthwaite and their newborn daughter, Grace. The Ferns are welcoming her "raw speed and experience" back to their struggling line-up.

Also in Sport A-Gender this week, racing driver Chelsea Herbert is thankful the crash that left her with broken vertebrae wasn't more serious; Silver Ferns shooting star Maia Wilson admits she didn't expect to be a starter in the Nations Cup, the latest silverware in Netball NZ's cabinet; and Black Ferns Sevens legend Ruby Tui puts Auckland forward as next year's New Zealand venue for the World Sevens Series.
