Nike Roshe One Print .She is part of a new leadership group, with shooter Caitlin Thwaites and midcourter Kim Ravaillion elevated to vice-captaincy roles.Uncapped players Courtney Bruce and Caitlyn Nevins and recalled shooter Susan Pettitt have also been named in the squad of 12, after representing Australian in the Fast5 World Series event in Melbourne last weekend.The Quad Series will be played next January and February in South Africa and England and features the national teams of those countries, along with Australia and New Zealand.Layton has blossomed into one of the worlds premier defenders over the past two years, winning awards and plaudits for her ability to make big plays.She has earned plenty of publicity for barking out orders to her colleagues, though she has never captained a senior team.You could say my leadership style is definitely more vocal in regard to being at the back of the court, Layton told AAP.But I always saw that as my role, to try and give my team energy throughout a game and wanting to speak up on and off the court.Layton wont be changing her style but will lead by as example as much as by word.Youve got to walk and talk, theres no point standing somewhere and doing all the talking and not acting, she said.Nevins, who Layton played alongside in Victorian representative teams,, was often the only non-international in the trans-Tasman title-winning Queensland Firebirds starting seven.She took the hard road but kept persisting and ended up getting the two premierships with Queensland and then playing Fast5 and really proving herself there, Layton said.Bruce was a lynchpin of the West Coast Fever defence, in 2016 and might have earned senior selection earlier if not for injury issues.She just reads the game so well and picks off so much ball, its really exciting what she;s going to bring to the team on and off the court, Layton said.Pettitt, a former NSW Swifts teammate of Laytons, won the last of her 54 Test caps almost four years ago.Ive seen her work so hard behind the scenes the last couple of years and doing all the extra agility work, Im so glad she has been rewarded, Layton said.Australian Diamonds 2017 Netball Quad Series squad: Courtney Bruce, April Brandley, Paige Hadley, Sharni Layton (capt), Caitlyn Nevins, Susan Pettitt, Kim Ravaillion, Gabi Simpson, Caitlin Thwaites, Gretel Tippett, Jo Weston, Stephanie Wood.
