Silver Ferns defender Jane Watson made the most of her time when she dropped into town early last week to speak at the Marlborough Sports Awards.

In the morning the world champion visited Marlborough Girls’ College and held a skills session with a group of keen netballers, then fielded questions from the group.

Following that she, and MC for the night Bernice Mene, a former Ferns captain, attended a lunch with a group of Marlborough netball supporters.

Later, at the Convention Centre, Watson shared her recent experiences of winning the World Championships in Liverpool with the 300-strong crowd, along with outlining the often bumpy path that took her to the top of the sport.
