Kim Ravaillion

Kim Ravaillion is the only player to make her Australian Diamonds debut before her national league debut. Ravaillion debuted for the Diamonds in January 2013.

In Ravaillion’s short career, she has a Netball World Cup gold medal, a Commonwealth Games gold and two ANZ Championship Premiership medals. She represented Australia in the 2013 Netball World Youth Cup.

Ravaillion is currently playing for the Magpies Netball in the Suncorp Super Netball.

Liz Ellis

Liz Ellis is regarded by many as one the greatest defenders to play the game. With three World titles, two Commonwealth Games gold medals, four national league titles and MVP awards with the Sydney Swifts, Ellis retired from the sport having achieved every individual and team accomplishment possible.

Ellis made her debut for Australia in 1993 and played a record 122 test caps in an international career spanning 15 years. She became the national Captain in 2004 and remains the most capped player in Australian netball history. Ellis retired from the sport at age 34, capping off a remarkable comeback from a knee reconstruction to Captain Australia to the World Championship in 2007.

In 2011 Ellis was inducted into the Sport Australia Hall of Fame and the Australian Netball Hall of Fame.
