NZ Rugby World - - The 50 Most Memorable Moments of 2017 -

It doesn’t mat­ter to her what ver­sion of the game she is play­ing, she will find the space. She will get in­volved and give her half a me­tre, not even that, and she will skin the first de­fender and most likely score.

It is a thank­less task hav­ing to de­fend her be­cause the mar­gin for er­ror is tiny and as women’s rugby plants its flag more firmly on the map, she has the po­ten­tial to be a global su­per­star.
