The 31-year-old had a glittering career including 67 test caps and a pair of gold medals at the 2014 Commonwealth Games and 2015 World Cup with the Diamonds.

“I got my first Melbourne Vixens 10 years ago now, so it’s pretty special to be back in these colours,” she told The Australian.

She decided to step away from netball ahead the 2016 season after falling pregnant returned to the game with the Adelaide Thunderbirds in 2017 but after only a half a season she decided to live in the United States fulltime with her husband Joe, who pays for the Utah Jazz, and two children so the family could be together.

However, after flying back to Melbourne and playing a match in the Victorian Netball League, she was approached by the Vixens.

Ingles signed to the Vixens as a training partner mid-week and was planned to be taken to Sydney, where the side would face the Giants, as a back up for the injured Chloe Watson.

However, illness rules Watson out of travelling so Ingles will slot into her place in the squad.
