In her first season with the Magic since the ANZ Premiership began, Mikaere will be looking to have a lasting influence and replicate that winning form once again. She tasted success with the Magic side back in 2012 with the long-limbed defender able to jump into action at any time. Mikaere is a real excitement machine able to generate a wealth of turnover ball and cause confusion with her constant pressure. Standing at 192cm, Mikaere has height on her side and uses her long lean over the shot to intimidate the goalers and force errors. Her ability to go out hunting for the cross-court ball makes her a constant threat while her physical pressure under the post gets under the skin of her opponents.
