The newest team in the new national netball league have unveiled a new player.

Defender Kate Burley is confirmed as the Northern Stars' replacement for Holly Fowler, who was ruled out for the entire inaugural season after damaging knee ligaments two weeks ago.

Coach Julie Hoornweeg says Burley had impressed since joining in a training capacity.

The south Auckland-based franchise was formed following New Zealand's split from the old trans-Tasman league.

Their first opponents on Sunday will be against Southern Steel in Hamilton, the first match of a triple-header involving all six teams.
