The recently named 2019 Black Ferns squad will play a New Zealand Barbarians women’s side on Sunday in Pakuranga, Auckland.

The women’s Barbarians side will be made up of members of the wider Black Ferns training squad and players from Farah Palmer Cup (FPC) teams.

New Zealand Barbarians Club President and former All Black, Alan Whetton, said he was absolutely delighted the club could give some of New Zealand’s top female players the opportunity to wear the iconic Barbarians jersey and play at this level. 

“The growth of women’s rugby here and overseas has been phenomenal and we’re keen to be part of it. When the opportunity arose for the New Zealand Barbarians to be involved in a match with the Black Ferns we jumped at it.”

“We’d love as many friends, whanau and fans to come along and watch some of our country’s best players in action as they prepare for Women’s Rugby Super Series in the USA.”
