Former Queensland Firebird Mahalia Cassidy has been named in the Lightning side ahead of season 2021. Cassidy is a tenacious and highly talented midcourter, who has made a name for herself wearing the Centre bib, but is also comfortable at Wing Attack, which will provide balance to Lightning’s squad.
While injuries have hampered the 25-year-old’s court time in previous seasons, 2020 saw a return to form and fitness. Cassidy went on to rank fourth in the league for total Goal Assists across the season and will be a major asset to Lightning’s 2021 side.
