An unrelenting defender with bucket loads of experience, Poolman provides a steady head in the defensive circle for the GIANTS. She is loved by her teammates for her strength on court and her ability to pressure opposition attackers into making mistakes. Poolman is strong one-on-one and her positioning and aggression makes her a dynamic member of the GIANTS defensive goal circle. One of those players who Julie Fitzgerlad knows what to expect from her each and every week.
Standing at 190cm Poolman uses her height to full effect to swat away passes coming into the circle and stop any easy access. Her lean over the shot is intimidating, able to get in the head of the goalers and cause all sorts of headaches. Her connection with Manu’a in the defensive circle enables her to go out hunting for the ball while her rebounding positioning makes her hard to match up on.
