Shiray Tane

A product of Hamilton Girls High School, Shiray Tane came through the 2012 Go4Gold programme and went on to become a silver medallist with the Black Ferns Sevens team at the 2016 Rio Olympics. The utility back is a former touch representative which explains her clever footwork and quick turn of pace.
