Nyah and Sienna Allen have signed on as training partners for the 2022 Suncorp Super Netball Season

Collingwood is delighted to announce the return of Nyah Allen as a training partner for the 2022 Suncorp Super Netball Season, with the agile shooter to be joined by older sister Sienna on the Collingwood roster.

The Mount Gambier siblings will reunite at the Holden Centre, with 22-year-old Sienna crossing to Collingwood after three seasons as a training partner with the Sunshine Coast Lightning.

Nyah will embark on her third season with the Pies, making a name for herself as a rising star and impressing fans with creative court craft and accurate conversion.

As well as notching 12 national league games, the 19-year-old has been part of the South Australian state team for the last four years and the most recent Australian Netball World Youth Cup squad.

Plying her trade at the other end of the court, circle defender Sienna will be looking to continue to make strides after coming back from a foot injury in 2020.

Like sister Nyah, Sienna has been a key member of South Australian state teams over the years, as well as three Australian development squads.

Known for her ability to read the play and drive ball from defence, Sienna will add an extra layer to an already dynamic defensive line up for Collingwood.

Collingwood’s netball program will return for pre-season training on November 8.
