Black Ferns plans

The New Zealand Herald - - NEWS -

Cel­e­brat­ing the Black Ferns re­mains on the agenda for New Zealand Rugby. The na­tional body has been crit­i­cised for not do­ing enough to hon­our the achieve­ments of the world cham­pion women’s team who clinched their fifth World Cup crown with vic­tory over Eng­land in last month’s fi­nal. At the All Blacks test against the Spring­boks in Al­bany on Saturday night, Black Ferns cap­tain Fiao’o Fa’amausili and Sev­ens vice­cap­tain Tyla Nathan-Wong de­liv­ered the match ball via a he­li­copter. Pub­lic cel­e­bra­tions are planned in Auck­land this week but a pa­rade is not thought to be sched­uled.
