“After a longer than normal series of trials, aimed at giving as many of our Flag Football wahine a chance to show us what they’ve got, we are excited to finally name the High-Performance Units 25! It wasn’t easy though, with plenty of skills on display throughout – which highlights the level of skill and athleticism these 25 have shown ! Thank you to all our trialists, and those in the background supporting this process! Now the real work begins, taking this wonderful group of talented wahine and turning them into a team – a family – that we, as a nation and football community, can be proud of.” – Coach Clark.
