Eloise Blackwell

An experienced campaigner, the impressive Eloise Blackwell has established herself as a vital part of the Black Ferns lineout.

She has been a first choice selection for the Black Ferns since 2013, not missing a Test since the first match against England that year.

Originally from Great Barrier Island, a move to the Ponsonby Club – the rugby starting point for many great New Zealand players - provided a catalyst for an impressive career in the Auckland colours. Blackwell already has some useful experience having made her first class debut in 2009 as an 18-year-old.
