Portia Woodman is one of the most recognisable players in women's sevens, as the leading try scorer on World Series.

Having transitioned from wing to a strike prop, Woodman has pace, strength and determination that make her world class.

Woodman has been recognised on the global stage with the 2015 World Rugby Women’s Sevens Player of the Year Award and in 2017 was named World Rugby Women's Player of the Year. In 2020 she was named as the top women’s sevens player of the decade.

In XVs, Woodman was part of the World Cup winning Black Ferns in 2017 and holds the record for most tries in a Farah Palmer Cup match, crossing for six tries against Taranaki for Northland in 2020. She was part of the team that won Gold at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
