Eloise Blackwell

Heading into 2014 with three Black Ferns campaigns behind her, the impressive Eloise Blackwell was part of two Tests against England in 2013.

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.  Now at 23, Blackwell already has some useful experience having made her first class debut in 2009 as an 18-year-old.
