BIOGRAPHY

Black Fern #221

Renee Holmes represented New Zealand in four sports before her 21st birthday. After ventures in football, taekwondo and ultimate frisbee she switched to rugby aged 16 and cracked the Black Ferns for the first time in 2020.

Originally from Gisborne, Holmes played for the Hawke’s Bay Tui and Bay of Plenty Volcanix before a shift to Waikato for her Bachelor of Health, Sport and Human Performance studies in 2019. She promptly won the Waikato player of the year award for her work at halfback and first five before turning heads at the Ignite Sevens. In 2020, she shifted to fullback.

She made her Black Ferns debut against England in Exeter in 2021 and was a member of the Black Ferns victorious Rugby World Cup 2021 squad.
