The West Coast Fever's 2022 line up is starting to take shape, with star mid-courter Jess Anstiss re-signing with the club for another two seasons.

Mid-court star Jess Anstiss has re-signed with the West Coast Fever, keeping her in the green dress until at least the end of 2023. For all your Suncorp Super Netball signing news, stay up to date with our Off-Season Hub and follow The Inner Sanctum’s netball podcast, Over a Third, on Twitter and Instagram to get the news when it breaks.

Anstiss was once again a key cog in the Fever engine room, recording 168 goal assists from 267 circle feeds in 2021. She was just as strong in defence as she was in attack with 24 deflections and 42 pickups.

The 24-year-old’s contribution to the team saw her receive West Coast Fever’s coaches award at the Net Ball last Friday.

Anstiss had another stellar season, playing across wing defence and centre, her performances across the season recognised with selection in the 2021/22 Australian Diamonds squad alongside fellow teammates Courtney Bruce, Verity Charles, and potential Diamonds debutant Sunday Aryang.

She has now played 77 games for the Fever after making her Suncorp Super Netball debut in 2017. Her strong debut season was rewarded by winning the club best and fairest in her first season.

Anstiss said she was grateful to have re-signed with the club, and is excited for what’s ahead.

“The fact we’ve been able to keep a core group together over the past few years has been great. I’m really looking forward to getting to know Dan and his way of coaching, which is something that’s new and will be exciting for us as a group,” Anstiss said. 

“I’m also looking forward to getting some more home games next year and playing in front of the Green Army.

“I’d like to thank the Green Army for the ongoing support, whether we are here in WA or over in a hub, we constantly feel the support. We appreciate everyone who has stuck by us during the good and tough times and look forward to achieving that maiden premiership together.” 

Anstiss joins Bruce, Charles, Jhaniele Fowler, Sasha Glasgow, Alice Teague-Neeld and recruit Rudi Ellis in the 2022 squad for the Fever.
