BIOGRAPHY

Black Fern #231

Auckland youngster Maia Roos has quickly risen through the rugby ranks, debuting for the Auckland Storm in 2019 and forming a strong partnership in the middle row with Eloise Blackwell.

Roos was Head Girl at Tamaki College, she played two matches for the NZ Barbarians in 2020 and was part of the inaugural Blues women’s team.

Roos made her Test debut against England in Northampton in November 2021 and was a member of the Black Ferns Rugby World Cup 2021 winning squad.

In 2023 Roos became the youngest Black Ferns captain at the age of 21. She captained the side against her country of birth USA and led the Black Ferns to their 2023 Pacific Four Series title.
