Making her international debut in the 2012 Quad Series against South Africa in Wellington, Thwaites shot 23 goals at 100 per cent accuracy after replacing Caitlin Bassett in the second half. Thwaites was a part of Australia’s Commonwealth Games gold-medal winning team in Glasgow last year. Born and raised in Bendigo, Thwaites also represented Australia in volleyball before deciding to pursue a netball career. The prolific goal-scorer will make her Netball World Cup debut and her selection comes on the back of a career-best season in the ANZ Championship where she scored more than 500 goals for the first time. Thwaites also broke the record for the most goals in a season by a NSW Swifts player, previously held by former Australian international Catherine Cox.
