Netball: Wendy Frew shares Kurt Baker-inspired snap after ANZ Premiership win

Southern Steel captain Wendy Frew has celebrated her side's ANZ Premiership title and the end of her illustrious career, Kurt Baker style.

Frew posted a photo to Instagram page, posing topless with the trophy on a teammate's shoulder after their come-from-behind 54-53 win over the Central Pulse in Sunday's final.

In July, the 33-year-old announced that she would retire at the end of the season.

Frew said retiring a champion was the perfect was to end her career. 

"I'm just absolutely chuffed," Frew said. "When the whistle went, I just went nuts.

"This just means so much, obviously being my last game at this level, and there's no better finish I could imagine - it's just like a dream.

"To come back in the last few minutes just showed the character of the girls and the belief within the squad, and just the heart that we have in the dress."

To celebrate, she took to Instagram with a surprising snap. 

"That's me, I'm out," Frew posted.

The photo was inspired by Baker's antics after the All Blacks Sevens won the World Cup in San Francisco last month.

Baker posed nude on teammate Trael Joass' shoulders with the World Cup trophy in hand, after they beat England 33-12 in the final.

Baker told Newshub that the prank was designed to amuse teammates, as they wound down from a stressful week.

"It was just for a bit of a laugh," Baker said. "I have always sort of done something like that if we win something, so thought I better keep up the tradition, given it was a World Cup.

"Got to celebrate that. He [Joass] was a sitting duck and just the man for the job," he laughed.
