Wickliffe is also a Women’s Rugby World Cup Sevens winner with the Black Ferns Sevens side, for which she debuted in 2009.

Wickliffe missed the Black Ferns' 2012 Tour of England, but returned to the Black Ferns in 2013, where she showed her strength on defence. In 2014, she played in six Tests across the International Women's Rugby Series and the Women's Rugby World Cup and scored four tries.
