Victoria Subritzky-Nafatali

Victoria Subritzky-Nafatali made her first class debut for the Otago Spirit in 2007 while still at secondary school. A deceptively quick, highly skilled and versatile five eighth, who can play at either 10 or 12, Subritzky-Nafatali has a proven eye for the tryline at provincial level.

The young player missed the 2013 International Series because she required treatment for a shoulder injury, which kept her out of rugby for the year. Subritzky-Nafatali rejoined the Black Ferns for the 2014 International Women's Rugby Series and took part in three Tests. She played in a further three Tests at the Women's Rugby World Cup in France, taking over first five-eighth duties from Kelly Brazier.

In 2015, Subritzky-Nafatali announced that she would be transferring from Otago to Counties Manukau, where she joined the Ardmore Marist club. She had played 26 times for the Spirit and earned 89 points,
