Terina Te Tamaki

The former Hamilton Girls High School rugby captain first appeared in the black jersey during the Atlanta Sevens in April 2016 and quickly showed her tremendous  speed and mind for the game. Te Tamaki was a member of the silver medal winning Rio Olypmic Sevens team which made her New Zealand's younger ever female medallist at 19-years-old. Her brother, Issac, has also played for the All Blacks Sevens.
