Megan Anderson (nee Dehn) was the first athlete to debut for Australia in the 21st century on Australia’s tour of South Africa in 2000.

A creative player either in the shooting circle or at wing attack, Anderson spent six years in the national squad and was part of Australia’s silver medal side at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne. 

Domestically, Anderson played in the national competitions in both Australia and New Zealand before the formation of the ANZ Championship in 2008. 

She represented the Sydney Swifts – winning three titles – and Adelaide Ravens in the Commonwealth Bank Trophy and also played a season with the Northern Force in New Zealand’s National Bank Cup. 

When the ANZ Championship began, Anderson joined New Zealand side the Southern Steel and spent two seasons with that team before moving to the Northern Mystics. She retired at the end of 2011 and moved into coaching.
