TWO-star local mixed netball players have been named in the NSW team.
South Coast Blaze representatives Elecia Parrott and Sean Gray have been both named in the NSW team and will take part in next year's Australian Championships.
Co-coach Tommy Portelli expects big things from his side and made mention of Parrott.
The co-coach said Parrott would "run the floorboards for the sky blues, as part of a mid-term rebuild of its core".
"The young gun middies will give us some more pace and flair to take the game on, which really is a squad direction we want to take and produce that classic NSW flat and fast netty," Portelli said.
"The boys have speed to burn, and our girls will not only match this but have a physical presence that we think will transfer to the mixed game with great impact."
Gray is not only known for his on-court efforts but he is also the South Coast Blaze's Talent Identification Program coach.
NSW coach Drew Mulvena said attack would be the name of their game with Kristina Bryce joining Em Moore as the star-studded female shooting line-up, with Brad Halton and Steve Catalano returning as the male shooting combinations.
"There are so many combos to run and mismatches we can force with these four shooters that makes us hard to predict and therefore hard to match up against," Mulvena said.
"We identified we needed more dimension to our attacking game to keep opposition guessing and believe this list will have defenders' heads spinning."
Mulvena added versatility would be one of NSW's many strengths.
"Our selections through defensive mid -court and circle defence were based on versatility, and knowing we can experiment with some new strategies to take on the age-old challenge of the big Queenslander or giant Victorians under the post," Mulvena said.
"The good thing is their game plan is very familiar to us and as good as our opposition is, we just needed different weapons and options to throw at it which we think we now have," Mulvena added.
