Aleisha Nelson

Aleisha Nelson made her Black Ferns debut on the team’s Tour of England in 2012, where she featured in all three Tests. She missed the 2013 campaign but played in every Test in 2014 and 2015.

A powerful scrummager who regularly dominates her front row opponents, Nelson is another international to come from the Ponsonby Club and has been playing for the Auckland Storm since she was a teenager, making her one of the Storm’s most experienced players in the 2016 Farah Palmer Cup.
