HIBISCUS PLAYERS NAMED IN 2017 BLACK FERNS!

MASSIVE congratulations to Charmaine Smith and Becky Wood named this week in the Black Ferns squad!

Charmaine has been in the team since 2015 earning 8 caps, and has set the standard as one of the hardest trainers, and most uncompromising players on the field, making her a regular starter in the National side's starting XV.

Becky has made it to the top of the pile after just 3 years playing rugby! The 30 year old will make her debut this year after three strong seasons with East Coast Bays and the Harbour Hibiscus, and what a year to do it, with the Women's Rugby World Cup kicking off in Ireland in just over 2 months!

Further congratulations to former Women's Development Officer and Harbour Hibiscus captain Chelsea Alley on also being named in the squad.
