BIOGRAPHY

Georgia Ponsonby debuted for Manawatū in the Farah Palmer Cup in 2017, her last year at Feilding High School.

Georgia Ponsonby started her rugby career as a loose forward, before switching to hooker and establishing herself as one of the best tight forwards in New Zealand. She has been a member of four Canterbury Farah Palmer Cup Premiership winning teams (2018-2020, 2022).

Ponsonby was born in Gisborne and boarded at Feilding High School where she picked up rugby. She was picked for the Manawatu Turbos in 2017 and made half a dozen appearances at number eight before a scholarship took Ponsonby to Lincoln University in Canterbury.

In 2021 the success of her positional transformation to hooker was complete when she

was picked for the Black Ferns Northern Tour. She made her Black Ferns off the bench against France in Pau in 2021 and was a member of the Black Ferns Rugby World Cup 2021 winning squad.
