Chelsea Alley got her first taste of the Black Ferns campaign environment when she was called to England as an injury replacement in 2012.
The young first five-eighth, who made her first class debut in 2011 for Auckland while playing for the Waikato University Rugby Club, proved exceptional in directing her backline and scored some useful tries. She was a key part of Waikato's successful return to the Women's Provincial Championship in 2012 (after missing the 2006-11 seasons) and at the end of 2014 had turned out 21 times for Waikato and scored 192 points for her Union.
In 2014 she appeared at the Amsterdam tournament with the New Zealand Women's Sevens team.
