This post gives us the warm and fuzzies. Black Ferns and Waikato prop Toka Natua shared this photo of her with her partner, Taranaki flanker Pita Gus Sowakula, after yesterday’s double header at FMG Stadium Waikato.

Injury has kept Pia Tapsell on the sidelines for most of the Farah Palmer Cup, but she returned with a bang on Friday night. She scored two tries for the North Harbour Hibiscus in their 33-21 win over the Taranaki Whio at North Harbour Stadium.

The Otago Spirit had a bit of fun during their trip to Napier. Jordyn Tereu posting this brilliant video with her teammates! It was happy days for Otago, who now top the Championship ladder after beating the Hawke’s Bay Tui 34-26 in their top of the table clash.

Taranaki’s Alesha Williams snapped this shot with her Whio teammate Elle Johns after their toughly contested match against North Harbour.
