Kiwi Ferns Head Coach Tony Benson has named his squad for next week’s ANZAC Test against the Jillaroos at Canberra’s GIO Stadium.
The May 5 Test will be Benson’s first as coach of the New Zealand women’s side.
Benson’s squad includes six Test debutants including Alexandra Cook, Bunty Kuruwaka-Crowe, Corrina Whiley, Chrystal Tamarua, Madison Bartlett and Ngatokotoru Arakua alongside seasoned veterans Sarina Fiso and Krystal Rota.
Fiso captained the team who took out last year’s ANZAC Test 26-16 in Newcastle and will continue her captaincy as they gear up for next week’s triple-header alongside the Junior Kiwis and Kiwis.
Fans can watch the Kiwi Ferns at 7.25pm (NZT), Friday May 5 on Sky Sport.
