Named co-vice captain of the Diamonds in July, Simpson’s leadership has grown from strength to strength, also leading the Queensland Firebirds in the inaugural Suncorp Super Netball season.

A strong force in the Diamonds midcourt, she has the ability to shut a player completely out of the game. Her drive for the ball is unrivalled, and her dogged defence caused numerous game-changing turnovers across the international season.

Simpson was named Liz Ellis Diamond winner at the 2017 Australian Netball Awards, netball’s highest accolade, taking into consideration national league and international performances.
