    Grief within the netball community after the death of Margaret Forsyth from cancer aged 59

    Grief within the netball community after the death of Margaret Forsyth from cancer aged 59


    The Silver Fern great was the youngest to play for the national side at a World Cup, selected as a 17-year-old for the 1979 tournament where New Zealand were joint winners.

    She won again with the 1987 squad.

    Former teammate and friend Tracey Fear says Forsyth's grace, skill and athleticism stood out.



    Forsyth was last year made an officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to netball and the community.
