Kelly Brazier

Kelly Brazier brings a remarkable depth of experience to the Black Ferns backline and she was the team’s leading pointsscorer during the International Women's Rugby Series with 25 from three Tests. 

With the ability to play almost anywhere in the backline, her versatility, speed and ability to create opportunities anchors her as one of the key weapons in the Black Ferns arsenal.  A 2010 Women’s Rugby World Cup champion, Brazier was the tournament’s top points scorer and in 2013 she added a Women’s Rugby World Cup Sevens champion title to her achievements. She has been a regular feature of the New Zealand Women's Sevens sides.

Brazier has been back playing in Otago colours in the Women’s Provincial Championship since 2012 after one season with Canterbury and regularly tops the pointsscorers’ ledger.
