The players will travel to Sydney New South Wales early February 2017 to play a series of matches against NSW Academy teams that will be held in conjunction with the World Series Rugby Sevens in Sydney where the girls will gain valuable rugby experience whilst mingling with players at a national and professional level. Ari has played rugby union since she was nine years of age when she first played for Waikite Rugby Union Club in Rotorua which was, incidentally one of her grandfather’s clubs in his rugby ’heyday.’ After moving to Australia she continued to play for Browns Plains in Brisbane, North Coast in Perth and currently Nedlands Girls Rugby Sevens in Perth along with the State U15 Girls Rugby Sevens. Her goal is to progress as much as possible in the sport she is passionate about and to eventually trial for the Olympics in 2020.
