Selica Winiata is a star of the women’s game in both fifteens and sevens, regularly exposing weaknesses in her opponents’ defensive systems with deceptive speed and power.
Although one of the smallest players in top-level rugby, Winiata holds both tryscoring and pointsscoring records in the Women’s Provincial Championship.
The Manawatu police woman was part of the Women’s Rugby World Cup Sevens-winning New Zealand side in 2013 and four years after her 2008 debut for the Black Ferns, Winiata returned in 2012 to take on England in all three Tests and score a try at Twickenham.
In 2013, Winiata earned the inaugural SKY Television Fans Try of the Year with a scything, last-minute, length-of-the-field try in the second Black Ferns v England match.
