The versatile Ariana Bayler can play multiple positions in the backline.
But it was at halfback where she was utilised for Waikato last season, appearing in all eight games for her province in the Farah Palmer Cup, kicking seven conversions.
She made her debut for Waikato while still at Waihi College in 2013. The next year she was at Hamilton GHS, and had made 15 first-class appearances for Waikato by the time she left school. She missed the 2015-16 seasons.
In 2014, Bayler showed her commitment to the game by driving to Palmerston North straight after playing for Waikato. The following day she helped her Hamilton GHS First XV to the national Top 4 title.
