Black Ferns To play England In Test Series
The matches are scheduled for Saturday 22 October and Wednesday 26 October. In addition, England will play a warm-up match against a New Zealand invitational team on Wednesday 19 October.
Black Ferns coach Jed Rowlands said the two-Test series against England would help the national team in their preparation for next year’s Women’s Rugby World Cup tournament in Canada.
“I’m pleased that England agreed to come here. They are our main opposition at the moment and will present a great challenge for the Black Ferns,” Rowlands said.
“Apart from the Tests, it’s also pleasing to know that England will be playing an invitational team. It’s an indication that there’s depth in women’s rugby and that’s positive,” he added.
