Captain Casey Williams will miss the inaugural Fast5 World Netball Series in Auckland this weekend to make further progress in the rehabilitation of her left knee.

Fast5 Ferns coach Waimarama Taumaunu confirmed Te Huinga Reo Selby-Rickit will be called into the team of 10 to replace Williams.

"It's great to be able to have Te Huinga Reo available for Fast5 because she provides the team with another valuable defensive option," Taumaunu said.

Selby-Rickit was part of the silver medal-winning FastNet Ferns team at last year's World Netball Series in Liverpool.

Laura Langman will now captain the Fast5 Ferns.
