Kayes proves a gem



RUNAWAYS Diamonds have discovered an attacking talent in the form of new recruit Rhea Kayes.

Kayes stepped up to the shooting challenge in Runaways Diamonds' 49-32 loss to premiers Buckaneers in their round two Rockhampton Netball Association Senior A division match at Jardine Park on Wednesday night.

"She can basically play anywhere and is a great athlete,'' Kayes' Runaways Diamonds teammate Carmen Anderson said yesterday.

Kayes, who has arrived at Runaways alongside former Brothers players Erin Currie and Emily Beaton, has big shoes to fill in the attacking circle with the loss of experienced playmaker Hayley Ohl (nee Bean) for the season.

Ohl and husband Kevin are expecting their first child.

"We're definitely going to miss her leadership and enthusiasm,'' Anderson said.

In the other Senior A division game Pumas Midnight overpowered Brothers Crimson 41-29 after scores were locked 16-all at half-time.
