Sarah Goss

Sarah Goss made her Black Ferns debut against the Wallaroos before returning to sevens duties in the HSBC Sevens World Series.

One of New Zealand's top sevens player, Goss has captained the Black Ferns Sevens on several campaigns, including their silver medal win at the Rio Olympics in 2016. She focused on the longer form of the game in 2017, missing three Women's World Sevens Series tournaments.

The former Fielding High School student and competitive shearer from the Manawatu was an integral member of the Black Ferns Sevens team who won the 2013 Women's Rugby World Cup Sevens in Moscow as well as that silver medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics and has won back to back national titles with Manawatu Sevens. She has plenty of experience at fifteens as well, having debuted for the Cyclones in 2011, originally appearing at centre before turning out at 12 and 10.

Her favourite sporting hero is footballer David Beckham and she has aspirations to be a pilot.
