Silver Fern Kayla Cullen attended the Netball New Zealand awards at the Auckland Museum last night, unfortunately her partner, Shaun Johnson is on the other side of the world. Johnson is currently touring in the UK with the Kiwi's rugby team.

Luckily, Cullen's team mate Phoenix Karaka stepped up and took his place!

Johnson took the time to comment on the post with a couple of cute emojis and the words '@phoenixkaraka appreciate it'.

At the awards night, Cullen took out the People's Choice award for the second year in a row. Congratulations Kayla!
