Black Ferns set to play historic 100th Test match

For website v3

The Test was set to be against Australia, but with their O’Reilly Cup series called off due to Covid-19 restrictions, it’s now been confirmed the milestone match will be played against the Red Roses.


The Black Ferns first official Test match was against Canada in Glamorgan, Wales back in 1991 at the first women’s Rugby World Cup.


They have since gone on to be the most successful rugby side in the world, having won five Rugby World Cup titles in 1998, 2002, 2006, 2010 and 2017. They’ll be gunning for a sixth title on home soil next year, when New Zealand host the pinnacle event in October and November.



The Black Ferns have a remarkable 86.9% winning rate, having won 86 of their 99 Tests, lost 12 and drawn one.


They will take on England and France in four Tests in the UK and Europe across November.
