The trial match brought together 52 of the best women’s players in the country and leaves Black Ferns Head Coach Glenn Moore with plenty to think about ahead of naming his Black Ferns squad on Monday.

 

A spot in the Black Ferns squad wasn’t the only thing up for grabs at North Harbour Stadium with money also being raised for the Graeme Dingle Foundation (Possibles) and the UpsideDowns Education Trust (Probables).

 

AIG sponsored $100 for every point scored for the chosen charities with the Possibles playing for the Graeme Dingle Foundation and the Probables playing for the UpsideDowns Education Trust. Following the game, AIG bumped the total up from a combined $4,700 to $10,000 for each charity. 

 

The Black Ferns and NZ Barbarians squads will be named on Monday for a two-game series later in November.

Possibles 28 (Selica Winiata, Pip Love, Amy Rule tries, Kendra Cocksedge try, 4 con) Probables 19 (Luka Connor, Lisa Molia, Patricia Maliepo tries, Ruahei Demant 2 con)
