Kelly Brazier is one of the most accomplished players in the history of the game.
She began her career as a teen in Otago, debuting for the Black Ferns in 2009, and becoming a full-time professional sevens player in 2014.
She has gone on to win four World Cup titles – two each in XVs and sevens, a Commonwealth Games Gold and an Olympic silver medal. She has been part of six World Series winning Black Ferns sevens squads.
In dramatic Commonwealth Games Final, Brazier scored an 80-metre run away in extra time to claim the Gold medal for the Black Ferns Sevens.
Brazier's trademark step and ability to direct a team make her a vital part of both national teams.
Brazier has a desire to coach rugby once her playing days finish and has already worked with Bay of Plenty age group teams.
