Irene Van Dyk is one of the world's best-known netballers. 

She is the most capped international player ever and known by many as one of the greatest of all time.  

Her talent showed no bounds when she made New Zealand her home in 2000 after emigrating from South Africa in her late 20s, quickly becoming the face of the Silver Ferns and went on to rewrite the record books while continuing to play at the highest level into her 40s. 

She forged an extraordinary international record which included five Netball World Cups and four Commonwealth Games and was honoured for her services to Netball in 2009 when awarded the New Zealand Order of Merit in the Queen’s Birthday Honours. 

Irene was Simon Barnett and Phil Gifford's guest for this weeks Six and a Song.
