Gayle Broughton

Broughton's silky skills, swift side-stepping and explosive pace originate from both her touch playing days. Add in her deceptive pass and kicking game and she is guaranteed to keep the opposition guessing. If she wasn't playing rugby she would be a tattooist. Voted Taranaki Women's Sevens Player of the Year 2015, this Hawera 20-year old is one to watch in Rio.
