“I sat there fascinated by this team game where everyone was involved and had a part to play – that’s where I got my love for netball from.”

In the second episode, Jo Harten discusses life in Australia and playing for GIANTS Netball, her netballing roots in Harlow, Essex and her memories on the journey to 100 caps for the Roses.
