Victoria Subritzsky-Nafatali is coming off a very successful last two seasons in which she cemented herself as the Blacks Ferns’ first-choice No 10, won a Women’s Rugby World Cup and also claimed a Farah Palmer Cup title with the Counties Manukau Heat (in 2016).
A skilled operator at pivot, or even one out in the backline, she can take on the line robustly, step, fire her outsides and kick judiciously for position. She is deceptively quick, so it is little surprise that she has done good deeds for the Heat in sevens.
In 2017, she appeared in all eight Black Ferns’ Test matches, starting in the No 10 jersey on six of those occasions.
Subritzsky-Nafatali was straight back into action after the 2017 WRWC triumph, playing seven matches for the Heat. She now has 67 points from 16 outings for her province. Her first-class career began in her teens, playing 26 games for the Otago Spirit from 2007-14.
Away from rugby, Subritzsky-Nafatali is a teacher aide.
