No pain, no gain

Black Ferns training squad member lock Chelsea Bremner, of Canterbury, lifts weights in Auckland yesterday.

A squad of 40 players concluded a three-day Black Ferns camp in Auckland yesterday. The team finished with a weightlifting session, taught the skills of the sport by national champion Megan Signal and coach Simon Kent.

The camp included contracted players, Black Ferns sevens players and some promising players.

Former Otago player Kelly Brazier was at the camp along with Otago outside back Kilistina Moata’ane, who is contracted to the Black Ferns, and promising Otago inside back Rosie Kelly.

The Black Ferns were due to play tests last month but they were canned. It is hoped to arrange tests later in the year but nothing has been confirmed. Auckland and Whangarei will host the Women’s World Cup next year.
