E whakarite ana te kaiako matua o te tīma wāhine, a Brendon Webby ki te wero nui o North Harbour hei te Rā horoi e tū mai nei, ki te taiwhanga nui ki Rotorua.

He tuatahitanga mō te kai tīkape nei a Julie Lewis ki te aro ā-kapa i te wharanga a Baye Jacob (kua whati te waewae) Ka neke a Ereti Williams, kāpene, ki te poupou kāpo kia whakawātea te tūranga mā Julie. Ka tū toka moana tonu ngā pou whītiki a Kaci James rāua ko Julia Buescher. Ko te kanohi hou whakamutunga mō te tīma i tēnei wiki ko Kendra Reynolds, kua hoki mai te hautipua nei ki te aro ā-kapa, ki te pou taha wātea, i Hāpani a ia, e tākaro ana mō te tīma whakangungu taki whitu wāhine o Aotearoa.

Kua whakarerekē ngā parirau, kua whakawhiti a Sapphire Tapsell ki te parirau mauī, kua whakawhiti a Autumn Rain Stephens Daly ki te parirau katau.

E tumanako ana a Lily Florence kia kuhu hikaka ki te kēmu hei rīwhi i te tūranga kai tīkape, ka noho tonu ngā rīwhi katoa o te kēmu i pūrei ki a Hawkes Bay i tērā wiki.

Head Coach Brendon Webby is again bracing for another stern challenge this Saturday when his side faces North Harbour at Rotorua International Stadium.

Julie Lewis gets her first start at hooker as Ereti Williams moves into tight head prop due to injury (broken leg) of Baye Jacobs. The locking duo of Kaci James and Julia Buescher remains unchanged. The only remaining change to the forward pack will see Kendra Reynolds return from her New Zealand Sevens development duties to start in the number seven jersey for her blazer game for the side.

A reshuffle of the two wings will be the only change to the back line with Sapphire Tapsell moving to the left wing and Autumn-Rain Stephens-Daly moving to the right wing.

Lily Florence will be looking to make an impact off the bench this week as the reserve hooker, the remainder of the bench have secured their spot following last weekend’s performance against Hawke’s Bay.
