BIOGRAPHY

Connor, a former Opotiki College student, has done the hard yards since first trialling for the Black Ferns back in 2015.

She started her career in the loose forwards, moving to prop and now finally into the hooking position. After suffering a serious knee injury at sevens training in 2017, Connor missed the entire 2018 provincial season. Consistent performances for Bay of Plenty saw her selected as one of 29 players to be offered a Black Ferns contract in 2019.

Later that year she won her international call-up, debuting for the Black Ferns off the bench against Canada in San Diego. She made three further appearances off the pine in 2019, before two tries in three games for the New Zealand Development XV in Fiji.

Connor was integral part of the Black Ferns Rugby World Cup 2021 winning squad.
