Margaret Forsyth

Silver Ferns netball great Margaret Forsyth dies, aged 59

“She had a grit and a fire about her that I haven't seen since for a player of her calibre,” said former New Zealand team-mate and friend Rhonda Wilcox.

Forsyth won two world titles and became known throughout New Zealand and the netball world for her shooting circle combination with Margharet Matenga.

‘The Two Margs’ – with Forsyth at goal attack and Matenga at goal shoot – became the best shooting circle combination in world netball, helping New Zealand to two World Cup titles.
