Shakira Baker's selection for her first Women's Rugby World Cup came on the back of an impressive 2014 International Women's Rugby Series, during which she scored two tries.
A debutant for Wellington at 16 years old and former Hurricanes Secondary Schools player, Baker has also been part of the New Zealand Women’s Sevens, including the team’s first tournament win at the Oceania Sevens. Outside rugby, Baker has studied marine biology.
