Ashburton teenager Kate Lloyd has been called into the Mainland Tactix squad for the start of New Zealand's new elite netball league.

The 1.92m defender will cover the absence of of injured captain Jess Moulds when the season begins in Hamilton this weekend.

Moulds is continuing to rehabilitate from a serious knee injury suffered last year while leading New Zealand A in a practice match against England.

Tactix coach Sue Hawkins says Lloyd had impressed at the pre-season tournament in Otaki last weekend and during last year's second-tier national league.

The Tactix open their campaign against Waikato Bay of Plenty on Sunday, part of a triple-header afternoon in Hamilton involving all six teams.
